Our fan-hood culminated in us randomnly seeing him on the streets of Santa Monica last September. So I have to say a huge bravo to Mr. Letterman on his show with Bill O'Reilly last week. I think Dave could totally kick Bill's ass if they fought, don't you?
Let's see...what did I do this weekend? Watched this crazy movie - ever heard of Krumping? Spent way too much money on new jeans. Bought tickets to see Jeff Tweedy at the Abbey Pub later this month. Went out for Pho and got a little tipsy. I also finished some knitting.
Yarn: Lion Suede (just less than 2 balls)

I think both turned out ok. The shawl is for my grandmother. The scarf is for my sister. The Aurora 8 is so soft - I loved working with it. The pattern calls for size 13 needles, but I used US 15 needles because I don't have 13s. So the fabric is a bit looser knit than I would have liked, but I think it still looks good. It was my first attempt at bobbles too - very fun!|W|P|113683418739165012|W|P||W|P|1/04/2006 08:21:00 PM|W|P|Melissa|W|P|This is the time of year in Chicago when you want to get the hell out of Dodge. It's cold and gray, gray, gray. So depressing! That's why in a little less than a month, the husband and I will be off to South America. Argentina and Uruguay specifically. I cannot wait! Doug has planned the whole trip. My only job is to find a tango club for us to visit. If anyone has any suggestions - please pass along!
I finished up the City Shawl for my grandma's birthday. Overall it came out ok, but I think I goofed on a few of the increases, so it's not a perfect triangle. I'm hoping a little blocking will help. Either way, my grandma probably won't notice. I'll post some pictures soon. I also started Teva Durham's lace leaf scarf. It's a birthday gift for my twin sister -- we turn 30 on Feb. 1!|W|P|113642820493270706|W|P||W|P|1/05/2006 10:36:00 PM|W|P|johntheobold1619|W|P|I read over your blog, and i found it inquisitive, you may find My Blog interesting.
