Lost In Lace!!

First off, I want to thank everyone for all the lovely anniversary and birthday wishes. You are all wonderful.

I don't know about everyone else, but I'm really glad the weekend is here. I am truly exhausted. I have a graduation to go to tonight, and all I want to do is see my bed and dive into it. Well, I guess it's a dream right now which will come true a little later tonight.

In knitting news, Mr. D's second sock is halfway finished. I've been slacking on the knitting projects lately. I it's due in part to me being caught up in my lace frenzy. Crazy me said "why start with the easy stuff and design a rectangular shaped shawl first. No, I want to do a triangular shaped shawl first. Well, let me tell you, I've got the whole increase thing pretty much worked out, but working out the pattern has driven me a little crazy. Just when I think I have it worked out, I hit another snag. The repeat rows are throwing me a little, so I'm 3 steps forward, one step back. If anyone has any suggestions, please fire away. Right now the rectangular shawl is looking really good for my instant gratification fix.

I've also been a little slow on the sewing front as well. I think I'm waiting for my serger which is scheduled to arrive early this coming week. I can't wait. I'm hoping that some major sewing will be taking place next weekend.

My shoulder has been aching me really bad for a couple of months and now the pain is going into my neck. I had a massage back in April, and I think/know I'm due for another one now. A friend of mine mentioned that I should try some Tiger Balm, and maybe it would help. Has anyone ever used it? I hear it's suppose to be good. If you have any other suggestions, I am all for it.

To finish out this post today I want to talk about a new documentary that is at select theaters right now. I saw it Tuesday night. It's called Every Little Step. It the making of the revival of A Chorus Line. If you like/love musicals, you'll love this documentary. I know I did. I thought it was fantastic how the documentary incorporated footage and interviews from original cast members and ended with new cast members. You got a real sense of what really goes into making a musical from the idea and concept, the audition process and finally the end result. A definite Thumbs Up from me.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
