or the other way around, depending on your point of view.
It was a busy and fantastic weekend starting with an evening of hilarious juggling and commentary by The Flying Karamozov Brothers at Cal Tech's Beckman Auditorium. I'd heard of these guys and seen a short clip on some TV program years ago. They're amazing, not only with their juggling, but their sense of humor.
At the other end of the spectrum was a trip to see Tannhauser. I haven't been to a live opera in maybe twenty years and have never seen a live Wagner performance. This one was worth it. Thanks to my friend E for a wonderful Sunday afternoon.
And in between that there was the sale at Unraveled.
Eight skeins of Koigu and four of Colinette Jitterbug. Not only was it 30% off but I had gift certificates from my birthday that offset about half the purchase price. I think I have two skeins of the Jitterbug already that I'll add to this for a shawl. The Koigu is also for a shawl. My friend L (of L&H fame) is making the Spanish Dancer shawl and I want to make one like it. I just have to find out how many more stitches to add to the original pattern to make it bigger.
And then there was St. Patrick's Day Dinner at Judy's. A really perfect dinner of corned beef and cabbage and potatoes and carrots. And jalapeno rolls just for fun and they had some green in them.
