Habu, Hockey, and a Small Pile of Koigu
The Koigu Sock at the Chicago Wolves game that the adorable Kelly took us to - We screamed, we cheered, we booed, we comported ourselves appropriately I think!
GO WOLVES!!! Dave kept screaming "Carn the Wolves" which confused people - Carn is kind of short for Come On in Australia, but once they saw the amount of Wolves merchandise he was decked out in and they figured out he was pro Wolves not anti Wolves, it was all cool.
Oops, this is another New York shot - two skeins of Habu bamboo, in my favourite colours - grey and purple. No idea what I'll knit with these - they were pretty and I decided I MUST HAVE THEM.
We had such a blast in Chicago! Kelly was the perfect hostess - she arrived to pick us up at the airport with welcome signs hung all over her dad's van, and there was much hugging. We dropped off stuff at our hotel and went out for lunchy goodness and then hit the YARN STORE.
Pics of my wildly enthusiastic purchases to follow.
Then we hit Borders for knitting and coffee and books, and all of a sudden it was like three hours later and time to get dinner and hit the hockey game! I don't think there was actually three consecutive seconds where one of us wasn't talking full speed!
Thank you, dearest, we had a wonderful time and we have been missing you! Count on seeing us again one day!
