A Weekend of Knitting and Knudity

My weekend itinerary is full for a change. Usually I am quite the boring old fart but NOT this weekend. Last night was knitters night out at HYAW. A good time was had by all. We all wore our jammies, relaxed and knitted.



Afterwards...it was off to Amici's for some martinis, more knitting and some odd looks on account of our attire.




As for the "Knudity", tonight is the Dirty Show. It's an annual erotic art exhibit that takes place every Valentines weekend here in the "D". Cant wait! Mr. Larj, who is also a stealth freak, and myself, will be attending later this evening. So...after I am finished with updating my blog I have to go out to find appropriate attire. Perhaps at the hardware store? ;-)

Unfortunately I won't be able to post any pics of the event as there aren't any camera's allowed, but you can check out some of the official photos on the Dirty Detroit website.

As for knitting content. I couldn't help myself, I had to start a sock to work on at home. It's one of the cable patterns from Sensational Knitted Socks. I haven't done cabled socks before so it's something new. Hey, isn't that a great bag?

Everyone have a great weekend!!

I love your videos. It is strange, but even though I can hear the different accents, it sounds (and looks, apart from the pjs) pretty much the same as our Knitting Coven!!!

Thanks for the videos...it made me feel like I was there! (Especially the parts with Amanda flailing around, that was par for the course! ;-) ).

Um, there was WINE at HYAW?!?!? I should have just dragged Mickey along!

Daaang that bag looks familiar... *head explodes*

Looks like you had a great time!

That bag is very very cute. I totally need a sock bag, I keep looking at them in Etsy and never order anything. And in the meanwhile I carry my sock-in-progress in my purse and get it all tangled up all the time.

What am I doing with my eyeball? That reminds me ... did you ever get your drink?

LOL!!! Looks like you and the group had a great night!

I also like to have a few projects going at once - especially socks. In multiples.

Thanks for your sweet comments:-) I hope to wear it this week....

Oh my goodness! That looks like fun - and my brain can not compute the amount of yarn in that shop. Honestly! You should see our pitiful LYS!!

Cute bag.

I love the videos, I wish I could have been there with you all. Hopefully I will be able to make it next month. I always miss the group when I am not able to attend.
