Action packed, again…

in Fitted Knits - Drop-Stitch Tank

Ballydoyle Any weekend that is gorgeous, has live music, beer, sun, friends, knitting, and Sex and the City is a winner!

Friday I went up to Schaumburg to see Modern Day Romeos, a cover band. They were very good…funny, too! I would say that a lot of their songs sounded amazingly like the real ones…it would be hard to tell them apart from some of the original artists. Which is really cool since they do a HUGE range of songs. They are a bit different than Dot Dot Dot that I saw back in March, so it’s hard to say which band is better. So, I guess you better just go see them both!Amandasunburn1

Saturday was AMAZING weather, so I laid out in my yard. I’m still kind of regretting doing that since I am quite red still. But I know it will turn to brown very soon…and then I’ll be a bronzed goddess (ha!). After frying myself I went to a graduation party Dropstitch8 for one of my friends and had some awesome home brewed beer and food. This girl’s husband makes a Honeyweissen that rivals Leinenkugle’s! Here I am showing off my pink face!

Sunday was KIB or Knit in Bar day. Robin organized a little get together at Ballydoyle’s in Downers Grove. She posted it on Ravelry for anyone in the area that wanted to come. Everyone that didn’t come totally missed out! Here is our little group enjoying the day, beer, knitting, and good company. I worked on the Drop Stitch Tank, and ended up almost finishing it. Here it is needing to be sewn up one side and the neck treatment needing to be done. I might have a new sweater by the weekend! That’s always a good thing…

And the crowning glory of the weekend–Sex and the City Movie. I saw it with my sister last night, and I thought it was really good. The clothes were awesome (I wish I had tons of money to wear some of those things), and I laughed so hard I almost peed my pants! There were some really funny parts. I recommend going to see it…I think it would be ok for guys to see, too. There were quite a few men in the theater laughing just as hard as the women.

It was great meeting you. I hope my drop stitch tank turns out as nice as yours. 🙂
