Mama's got a brand new scarf!
And I am kind of in love with it.
Eternity Scarf knit in Pigeonroof Studios Siren II Worsted :: Vitals
It is a continuous circle and can be worn many different ways. It was a quick and relaxing knit. I started it at the dimly lit Harmony bar for knit night. It felt so nice to re-join the group after not going since fall. I really miss women sometimes, just to sit and chat about whatever - it felt great.
I got another lovely "dose of women" at an overnight spa retreat with a good friend. She and I enjoyed the peace, got massages, lolled around in the hot tub, over ate on room service and had lights out by 10pm. She does not knit but she is the friend that drives and says "get your knitting out" - gotta love that. She is also the friend that says "that looks great on you, you should probably buy it". Love.
Laslty, I enjoyed women with my husband - that sounds risque when I read it to myself. But we watched Whip It last night. An indy film directed by Drew Barrymore about roller derby starring Ellen Page. If you liked Juno, you will enjoy this quirky yet charming film. There is a roller derby event coming to Madison on Valentine's Day, I kind of think I want to go. Nothing says love like a herd of tough broads in fishnets throwing elbows.
p.s. the woman who gave me a massage said things like "train wreck", "do you run, A LOT?!", "buns of steel, and not in a good way" and "you need more massages, sister" - so I see more relaxation in the near future - afterall, it's an order.
