(For anybody who doesn't just check my knitblog to see if I'm still alive)
Yesterday was an almost perfect lazy Sunday.
We rolled out of bed around 8 and headed off to the coffe shop around 9.
This was the first weekend without Sarah, as she's off to Bellingham to do costuming for some kind of wild west themed opera.
When we pulled in it was just Anna and Art, then Michael came dragging in, followed by Roland and then Mary, who isn't a Sunday regular but who ditched her husband and ran off to come play. Sarah's mom was there too, putting up her art for the January display.
Gordon jumped as his phone went off and then Sarah was on the speaker phone, calling from bed in B-ham still in her cowboy pajamas. While we were all jabbering with Sarah, in staggered Kate and Sasha. Okay, only Kate was staggering, still all jetlaggy from her trip back from Germany.
It was so nice to have most of the gang all together at once :D Sasha was fascinated with Michael's spinning and we filled his head with much fiber minutia ;) He stumped us though, when he asked if there was a special yarny term for the last bit of yarn like there is in sailing (the bitter end) (I had no idea, this is where that term came from btw, so that was a neat factoid to file away) Alas we could not come up with any such knitting/spinning equivalent term.
We lazed around chatting and giggling until almost noon, at which time a few more regulars with coming in and we knew we'd have to make a break for it before we got sucked in for another hour.
Off we zoomed to the boat, to meet the other Chris for drinks in Seattle. We were supposed to meet him at the New Orleans, but it was strangely closed. We're not sure if they're on a special winter schedule now or if it had to do with the construction on the street; Merchants was closed too. We're pretty sure that we saw the cook hanging out in front of the building, but didn't ask him what was up.
After a poke around Elliott Bay Books, we spent the rest of the afternoon geeking out in the Owl and Thistle and then came home on the 5:30. Another weekend day saved from productivity, except for the knitting I finished up whilst chatting. Go Team!
