You Gotta Know When to Fold 'Em...

Know when to hold 'em...

Yeah, so DBF and I went to the casino on Friday night to celebrate our anniversary and play in a poker tournament that DBF had won entry into for the free poker league. They limited the number of players to 40 and they were paying top 5. DBF finished seventh. I always hate being that close to the pay out. I finished fifth though and won 100 bucks! DBF and I split the winnings, played some penny slots, then went home.

Saturday we went to this thing called A Glimpse of India. It was a show that had traditional dance and singing and it was pretty good. At the end, they had some Indian food, but not knowing what anything was (nothing was labeled and it all looked deep fried), I didn't try it.

Sunday we went to go see the Simpsons Movie. It was pretty funny and if you're a fan of the show, you'll like the movie. Of course you will come out of the theater with the Spider Pig song in your head...

I also did some knitting this weekend. I worked on clue 3 to the mystery stole. I'm hoping to be done with clue 3 by tonight so that I can start working on clue 4 and have a fighting chance of getting that done by Friday. How many times have I had this grand plan to finish the current clues before the next one comes out though? :oP Here's the stole in all its unblocked curly gloriousness:I also worked on the fitted tank out of Blue Sky Cotton. The more I look at the color, the more it's growing on me. We'll see how the finished product looks when it's all done.That was the weekend in a nutshell. Hope everyone had a good weekend too!

Knit on...

Congratulations on your big poker victory!!

As for the shawl, you'll catch up eventually. Just make sure you do a week's worth every week and the worst that will happen is that you will finish a week after everyone else.

I like the colour you chose for your shawl. I wish I had the determination to do the MS3
