Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

I've no idea if that's correct Spanish or not. But it's what I hear around these parts.

My friend, and frequent student, Sally (that's her in the while jarancha) invited me to join her and her husband Jay (that's him seated wearing the white wedding shirt and red bandana) at a small local restaurant and to hear them perform some traditional jarancho music. Their instructor, Cesar, is on the right and a friend, Elena No Show, seated on the right, is playing her jarana. . There's a reason she's called No Show, but this time she did show up.Standing on the left and playing the cow jawbone is Aurora who was visiting from Guadalajara. It was a ton of fun. Afterwards we went to Sally's house and had some margaritas and guacamole and chips. No salsa.

I have some new socks that I started on Friday using the new Kollage Luscious sock yarn.

It's a blend of cotton and nylon. Very nice to knit. I'm doing a test to see if you really can get one sock out of 185 yards. I think it will be close. I didn't get as much done as I would have liked though. I spent a lot of time on Ravelry looking at all the projects that use Noro. Not very productive but maybe somewhat more than playing FreeCell.

Those socks look great, and the pattern looks very intriguing. How nice to sit and listen to music in a lovely setting too.

Looks like a fun time!

Wow! that is a fascinating stitch and the yarn certainly looks luscious. Can't wait, now, to see if you can get a pair out of that yarn.

muchos hugs
