Finished and worn already =-) It was simple to make, and is nice and soft and warm and cozy, just what I was after. I used one of the $$$$ wool and silk skeins that I had in the cupboard. I'm going to a snowy place soon for 3 days and I wanted something to go with my black coat and sweaters that was comfy. This is definitely that.
We went to San Diego's opening of the national touring Broadway production of West Side Story last night. It was fun. It was West Side Story: gangs dancing (original Jerome Robbins choreography) and singing and snapping their fingers...always a little cheesy (well, it IS, ...but we know that and love it anyway), always Romeo and Juliet, always poignant...and lots of fun. The dancing and music were great, the subtle additions of authenticity adding layers to the Arthur Laurents story and the Bernstein/Sondheim score. It was a sweet gift from friends to DH and his brother for their birthdays, and we DWs got to come along. To top it all off, for dessert (actually, for beer, not dessert), we went to watch DS and the country/folk band he plays bass in perform at a local pub! Dinner, theatre, and watching DS...a very nice night out.
