Recent Events

We're back from vacation and I'm scurrying around trying to catch up on, well, just about everything, including blogging. It's not for lack of stuff to right about. I just haven't buckled down and done the actual writing. I guess there's no time like right this very minute to fix that. Here's a quick rundown:
  • It's summer choir time! We're singing Purcell and Mozart and we would love a big audience, so if you're in the College Park area tomorrow, come to the free concert. The program will be Welcome to All Pleasures, Exultate Jubilate, and the Coronation Mass.
  • The Smithsonian Folklife Festival was a bit of mixed bag. I loved all the signs in Welsh, but $3.50 for a pupusa seemed excessive. More on that in the next post.
  • We went northward for a multifamily vacation this year. There was much wandering around New York, Vermont and even a bit of Canada. Details and pictures in the post after the next post.
  • I received an awesome Ravelry Hockey Swap package from Jacqui (link required Rav login). I'll post the pictures for that later too.
In knitting news, I finished a couple of socks:

I also finished the blue Scruchable Scarf I started when I was sick.
It was a shortish scarf, leaving enough yarn for a wee hat as well.
The Brooks Farm Four Play was very yummy and a joy to knit with. I didn't want to waste a bit. So I didn't!

Wow you've been busy Mia! Good thing we're planning a yarn crawl later this month - looks like you need to stock up on more yarn now that you've finished so many projects!
