And we have a winner!

Congratulations Jen! You have won my blogiversary give away! I have some sock yarn for you!
Regia sock yarn
I promise, the yarn is much less blurry in real life!

I finished the Tychus hat and have already given it to the happy recipient.

He seems to like it. I wasn't totally happy with it. My finishing (as always) wasn't the best. You can't tell from the picture, but there is an unfortunate nipple-like protrusion at the crown! But I wore it myself all day on Saturday, and it's really soft and warm. So it serves its purpose!

And I gave it to him with perfect timing because Maryland finally got a little winter weather yesterday.

night snow

I was stuck at work all day yesterday, so I kept running out the back door throughout the day to do a happy snow dance. I LOVE SNOW! Unfortunately, we barely got a dusting which was then covered with a layer of freezing rain, but I'm still happy that it finally snowed. The warm winter weather we had been having was depressing me.

I had a pretty good weekend in general. We reopened "Buddy" on Friday night. Our first run of it was so popular that we brought it back for a very short repeat run. I think it is safe to say that we all love this show. It's a really stupid script but it is still a great show. So fun to both watch and work on. It's truly remarkable how pleasant everyone at the theatre is. We had all gotten really bad attitudes after suffering through our dreadful Christmas show. And now we're all in good moods and having a blast doing this show again.

This week, I will be up at the Baltimore space in tech for "The Full Monty" which opens on Friday. I haven't seen a run of it yet, so I don't know if it's any good or not. I love the show and the score, so hopefully it will be a good production. I'm not really happy about being in tech for two weeks in a row, but that's my job. Besides...

I'm going to DisneyWorld in 10 days!!!!
My new favorite pastime is to send my niece Disney related text messages every day. She is a tomboy to the end - hates all thing even remotely girly. So I keep sending her text messages that say things like "maybe you can get the Little Mermaid's autograph!" or "maybe we can go to the Disney Princesses pancake breakfast so you can meet ALL the princesses!" Her response? "I could only be so lucky."

I'm trying to figure out what knitting I want to bring with me. I figure I'll need some socks to work on while standing in line for rides. I think I may make the second Pembrokshire Pathways sock.

I'm still waiting for yarn to come in the mail. I got one of my orders on Friday.
Debbie Bliss Cashmerino aran
Ten balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I got a really good price on it, but I'm not really sure what I'm going to do with it. It sure is pretty though. I love the dark orange color.

Well, I'm going to go back to being a slug. I don't have to be anywhere near the theatre today and I am enjoying it!

Happy Blogversary from me, too! Sorry it's late :(!

I think Tychus looks really warm and cosy - and no nipple in sight.

Disney world is a blast. Make sure your neice gets photos with all the princesses so you can post them. Or just one of her looking miserable surrounded by all of them. Drowning in a see of Disney girlieness!

I love that orange color, can't wait to see what you do with it!
