Chic Knits Bucket Hat

My first bucket hat. I fell in love with this pattern. The first pix is the "before" felting". It was quick to knit and fun to make. The felting went fast. I have a XS size head and I used a 1 gallon paint can for shaping. It really worked well. The pix of me is crappy and makes me look old (my age probably). I am almost finished with number 2. This one is made from Cascade 220 yarn, persimmon tweed.
I'll take a picture of someone cute and young in it.

Wicked, again

It's that time of year again. Exactly 1 year ago we made the trek to Chicago to see Wicked. It was just as great as I remembered. The weather was a little cold, not as bad as last year.

Didn't take any knitting, but did take a credit card! We went to Dick's Last Resort on Friday and Maggiano's on Saturday before the play. Lots of shopping. This years trip included 4 moms and daughters. All us Mom's are OR nurses. The teens are Kayla and Kirstin. The older girls are Jill and Molly. We got along so well and had so much fun!
OH! A neat bonus was having Erica hang out with us too! She is sooooo sweet!
