Friday night we went to A Mano Yarn Centerand for the next installment of Bad Girl Knit Night. Share Ross displayed her samples from the book and had a little hands on demo of the techniques of deconstruction she used in the book.
You caught me reaching for a maple covered Crueler from the pink box of doughnuts .... I didn't eat the fancy finger foods or the wine. I'm the designated driver
Nice variety of people there that night. Some new to us and a few of old friends.
What a treat to knit with the author, share her inspirations and not just be a spectator.
Shannita modeling one of the fashions from the book.
The obligatory photo with the author. I like the cheesy pictures.
Always a wonderful time at A Mano. I did by a skein of purple Manos for the never ending mitered rug but we were good besides the book.
I volunteered to help coach a little league team last month when Mrs. Twisted found out about a team that was a little short handed at times from a co-worker. Well, I was told the head coach was going to be out of town with his son this last weekend and I would get a chance to be in the dug out again since my kids grew out of the recreational leagues.
Arrived early and warmed up the starting pitcher with a little catch.
A little pre-game meeting... Going over the signs and having fun.I missed being in the coaches box a little bit. It was more fun that I thought. Cheering them on and seeing the look on their smiling faces as they rounded 1st base after a hit.
This may not seem like much to most but I loved warming up the pitcher while the catcher was putting on his gear and it reminded me of all the games I did the same thing while my Son and Daughter were pitching not may years ago. Oh yes I was hurting on Sunday morning. Age + lots of squatting makes you hurt the next day.
A bitter sweet end to a great day. The kids had fun and so did I.
