Walking with dinosaurs and other stuff

Last night we went Walking with Dinosaurs. It was a lot of fun. I found this video link (it's probably illegal since the announcer specifically said no videos or cameras allowed). I can just imagine the number of nightmares this show caused. Lots of very young kids in the audience.

But that's not what you came for.



This is what I bought on Saturday at the Fishbowl Sale. I only got 25% off this time but it was enough to keep my purchases under $100. Some Addi Turbo lace needles, a couple of ceramic buttons, some short Brittany needles, a skein of Mountain Colors Bearfoot, the dark blue, and two skeins of Chameleon Bambino sock yarn.

It was a great afternoon, sitting around with friends, knitting and being silly. But the thing I'm most excited about is this:



A skein of Sundara sock yarn in a colorway called Bird of Paradise. The colors in the photo are not quite accurate. It's much more intense. This is going to be so much fun to knit. A gift from the fabulous and ever generous L (of L&H fame). She knows I like orange.

Gotta go.

What a great yarn haul and the extra discount is always great. I love the Bird of Paradise yarn. Paul's grandmother has a giant plant outside her kitchen window and when it flowers they are really beautiful.

Well, 25% off is nothing to sneeze at. It looks like great stuff. I'd like tohave Sundara yarn in semi solid once in my life, I love her colors.

Ya know, they have a summer concert (indie rock) series at the Natural History Museum, and I went to one this summer. It was a great venue even though the sound was a little dodgy. They had a couple of the dinosaurs out! There was one nondescript thing that looked like a mini-Brontosaurus (I'm not a 10 year old boy, sorry) and the T-rex. It was so cool! Nice video!!

PS I was so sad I couldn't make that sale. The Bearfoot is my favorite. :)
