I've been working on that large "to do" list. First up, a mitten. Knitting this was more fun than I thought it would be, even when using dpns. (My circular needles were otherwise occupied.) Knitting this reminded me of my mittens when I was little. My earliest memory is standing in the basement, waiting to go outside and looking at my mittens on my hands. When I see those mittens now, they sure look tiny! I must have been 3 or 4 years old when I wore them. Amazingly, my three brothers also wore them too, and my mom still has them.
On Saturday, I finished reading a chapter in one of my school textbooks while knitting a hat. I love it when multi-tasking works out well like that! The hat and the chapter are both complete. On to reading Module 8 and starting another hat. By the way, this hat is much smaller than the others. It looks like more of a kid size hat. (It certainly doesn't fit me!) I cast on less stitches and used a size 6 circular needle.
Also on Saturday was the Blue Man Group concert. They may look strange, but they are entertaining! The overall theme of the show was that the group had purchased a video on How to Be a Megastar. They then proceeded to "watch" the video and take the advice it offered. One of my favorite parts was Rockstar Tip #47: Paying tribute to those rockers that have gone before you. They learned the tip then proceeded to launch into bits of Devo's Whip It, a Madonna song from her Like A Virgin era (complete with one of the blue guys wearing a bridal veil for a moment), and others. Someone in the audience shouted Free Bird and they went into that, too. Pretty funny. Anyway, it was a fun evening.
Last night was the Third Day concert with David Crowder Band and Hyperstatic Union. This was my fourth Third Day concert and I enjoyed it as much or more than the others I attended. I can't adequately describe what a worshipful, praise-filled event it was. Rocking? Yes! But full of praise for God. To be with thousands of other believers with everyone praising God gives me a glimpse of what heaven may be like.
One last thought for today, Geraldine has told me about a knit blogger need. Cathy at Tightly Wound ~ Loosely Knit has asked knitters to make squares for a blanket for her friend Jenn. Jenn has gone through some really tough times lately.
