…and again with the butt.


Okay I give up. Apparently it is just not meant to be. I will never get a photo of my daughter’s FACE while marching. Okay I haven’t completely given up – at least I can try again next year. *sigh*

This weekend two exciting things happened (well, other than Cummington and the events surrounding the festival). Firstly, I celebrated my first spinniversary since I learned to spin last year at the hands of the omniscient Shiela B. (can you believe I’ve acquired four wheels since then? Yeah. Neither can RR).

Secondly I actually got to see RR marching! In a parade! A real one! With music and horses and kids on bikes and fire trucks and flashy lights and everything! Usually the only view I get to see of him in his dress uniform is this one:


…that would be running out the door double checking to make sure he has all his crap. THIS year I got to see this:


Pretty handsome, aren’t they? ;o)

Also seen while driving aimlessly around upstate NY:


Yes, the house was just as scary as you might think…very Norman Bates-esque and no, we didn’t stop.

As for knitting….I don’t have time anymore, I’m updating my Ravelry notebook. ;op

  1. I can’t wait until you start putting your stash in. I love to drool over other people’s yarn! I’m also addicted to looking in other people’s queues…

  2. Ya, right! I’m not sure that’s true. What with four wheels and a ton of fiber ;-) You can do better than just 2 sweaters!

  3. At this rate it’ll take me ages to get really up to date on Ravelry but I’ve had fun poking around. Ah the marching band memories, what fun!

  4. Nothing like a man in uniform!

    Ravelry, the great time sucker. I have been trying to do my in stages so as not to completely suck all my time, but it is sooo hard.

  5. Wow, four wheels in a year. I can only wish… It’s been two years for me in a couple weeks and I still only have one… It’s a great multi-tasker I must say, but I now understand the appeal of having multiple wheels which I didn’t when I first bought mine.

  6. I can’t tell you how many of those pictures I have of both my kids. :)
    My daughter played the flute also, and then the tuba in her senior year, son played trombone. I miss being a band parent!
    Enjoy it for me!
    heh. “spinniversary!”

  7. What a lovely parade! I too used to march flute/piccolo, so I remember those days. Our uniforms weren’t as snazzy as those though.
