Friday FInish

 I finished my simple boot cuffs for Al. 
They were very easy. 
I have lots of yarn left. 
I knit with ARAUCANIA Milodon Color 9
100% wool. 
Simple cuff and then stockinette followed by another cuff. 

I'm so impressed with myself....
I knit in the car in the dark last night,
in the round. 
Fireman and I went to Milwaukee to see 
Brit Floyd. 

Fireman loved Pink Floyd. 
I had a vague memory of their :sound
and a few songs. 

I was going along to be kind.
It was, honestly, a great show.
The lighting, the sound, the back up singers.
I could have done with about an hour less of it...
they get kind of ...trippy....
but you do these things for someone you love. 

and then you get to knit on the way home.

Great boot cuffs! And great boots! I feel the same way about Pink Floyd. Good in small doses.

Adorable boot toppers!
The Mister is that way with Fleetwood Mac but I think it's actually just Stevie Nicks that does it for him.

I used to have a Pink Floyd album. I wonder where it is now? Those were the days. . .

Love the boot cuffs. Well done!

You were near my hometown! Knitting in the dark, now that's impressive! DD gave me some needles whose points light up in the dark....quite crazy, but they drive DH nuts. Lucky Al, those are cute boot toppers.

Boot cuffs are so much fun, aren't they?

". . .and then you get to knit one the way home," is my Favorite Sentence of the Day.

Those boot cuffs are so classy and fashionable! Good job! And you're actually lucky your husband is the leader to go to things like this! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Pink Floyd is not my fav....but you got to knit so that is a bonus. The cuffs are great.
