Eventing

If you’re in the Twin Cities and you’re planning to attend the Mountain Goats concert at the Triple Rock Social Club on Thursday, September 14, please let me know! Right now I’m going alone.

A while ago, I asked if anyone was going to be at the Taos Wool Festival (October 7-8), as it will be one of my stops on the Knitblogger’s Fall Tour I have planned for myself. If you are on the path between Minneapolis and Albuquerque and going to be around from September 30 – roughly October 15 or so, please leave me a comment or send an email to chris at this domain. I’m trying to get my exact schedule and route figured out – currently, I have stops planned in Ft Collins, Boulder, Denver, Colorado Springs, Albuquerque, and Taos (for the festival), although not specific dates yet.

SRP Update
He Huffed and He Puffed (250 pages), Good King Sauerkraut (214 pages), and You Have the Right To Remain Silent (249 pages) by Barbara Paul. These were the second, third, and fourth NYPD Lt Marian Larch mysteries. The second and third Marian Larch mysteries are described on the covers as “mysteries with Marian Larch” – she is definitely not the main character. In fact, in He Huffed and He Puffed, I wasn’t sure it was a Marian Larch book for the longest time! You Have the Right To Remain Silent is the first book in which Marian Larch is as important as the crime she’s investigating. This book could also be described as The Apostrophe Thief, part one.
Love Is Murder by Linda Palmer, 275 pages. This is the first Morgan Tyler (soap opera writer) mystery and even though I have absolutely no interest in daytime drama, I’m definitely enjoying this series (which I am unfortunately reading out of order). I’m about to start the third book in the series, which I hope will feature the black kitten she acquired in book 2. 🙂

Belated Saturday Sky… So belated that I took the picture Sunday evening! This is a view of downtown Minneapolis from the south shore of Lake Calhoun.

And to prove that I actually do knit sometimes, here’s my charcoal grey Regia Silk waffle sock for Project Spectrum – now with more cat butt than ever!

  1. Eeee, first on a Monday!

    Hey – too bad you can’t come up north on your Fibrearts tour. 🙁

    Gandalf sez – hey Chaos, you’re so cool, black cats rule! (BTW, are his whiskers black? I’ve never seen that before but the little guy has them.)

  2. Now you’ve got me thinking of slogans for that..”Come for the knitting.. stay for the cat butt” hee-hee. or just simply “got Chaos?”

  3. Yea, yea, rub it in! One day, I will get to go to ALL the fiber/wool festivals! Until then, I guess I just got to live vicariously through you lucky people.

  4. I love your idea of a knitbloggers tour. Sounds like a great way to spend a vacation. I’ll get my mini tour at Rhinebeck – my first ever Rhinebeck! I’m just at the point of counting sleeps.

    I like Mouse’s idea. A mug that says ‘got Chaos?’ perhaps?

  5. Nice socks 🙂 Your trip sounds great! Poor Chaos isn’t going to be happy with you away for a couple of weeks – he’ll turn his back on you when you come back.

    The Saturday/Sunday sky is beautiful!

  6. You are a super reader! I need to get started on my ‘reward for not sulking’ books. I saw a finished pair of those socks somewhere else, great pattern! And I say, Chaos is giving an odd sign of approval there!

    Pretty skyline!

  7. I’m so jealous that you are going to see the mountain goats!! I’ve been obsessing over the new album all weekend!

    Well, I will be there in spirit! 🙂

  8. Woohoo! I can’t wait to meet you! I guess in the meantime I’ll just have to sit here and be envious of your opportunity to see The Mountain Goats. *sigh*

  9. My compliments on the cat butt photo! Seriously, the composition is quite nice, the way the curve of Chaos’s cute butt and tail echoes the shape of your foot. Very Miro-esque!

  10. What a fantastic skyline shot!

    And for a second I thought you were only making toe covers or something. I swear I need to start reading the posts FIRST. Although you could really use this to mess with me. 😉

  11. If you’re passing through Denver, you’ll have to let us all know. Either we can meet up in Boulder/Lewisville with Jenifer, or have a Denver meetup. Can’t wait!

  12. I love the cityscape, and a little cat butt never hurt no one.

    I’m thinking I might get down to Taos (not all that far, ya know) and I can’t wait to host you for this leg of the tour!

  13. just stopping by to say “Hi”. Your new blog layout looks great! I like the event listings. By the way rumor has it Chaos is planning a party in your absence. Invites are going out to all cats of knitting
    bloggers. You know when the bloggers away the cat will play..party…
    have a good week!

  14. And here I was afraid I would get through Monday without my dose of cat butt. 🙂

    That’s a great sky picture.

    Your knitbloggers tour sounds like a lot of fun. Too I’m not on the way.

  15. Ah, the nostalgia. Back when I was a poor student living in the Twin Cities, I couldn’t afford to go see bands that often, but my favorite was Tina & the B-Sides. I loved those guys.

    I also love that walk around Lake Calhoun. In fact, the picture of Monkey on my blog was taken in the bow of one of the rental rowboats there last summer.
