I told Wooly that Michael got a million dollar bonus from Speedo for winning all 8 golds and what an incentive that is... even he (Wooly) would get motivated for that, eh? Wooly said, "YEAH!... well, maybe..." He's such a slacker!
2008 World Pipe Band Championships
The big event in Glasgow, Scotland on 8/16.
Guess who won?! Can you guess?! OMG!
Yes, Simon Fraser University Pipe Band won! The big boys!
AND their Drum Corps won the drumming is both MSR & Medley!
You know what that means right?! THEY SWEPT!
Here's a photo of Jack (pipe sgt), J Reid (lead drummer) & Terry (pipe major)
Here's more details.
They wore their black socks. :)
They brought home the gold too!
So, I had to celebrate... you know how I love peanut M&M's... they came up with these fancy ones and I bought 3 of the 5 flavors.
But I wish we were there with them when they won.
Wooly's going to buy the DVD when it comes out. I can't wait!
In Knitting News...
Yes, I remember this IS a knitting blog!
Can you believe only one month until fall?
They way I know is that my Summer Sampler Stole is almost done.
There's only one more pattern and the edging left!
Unst v3 - Edging Along
Whatever! Where is Mom? She can't leave this on the floor! (Kamati)
So, I got the 2nd border done and started the crazy, incredibly wide/deep edging. I'm a sucker for cool edgings, even though part of me is chanting, "edgie wedgie, just kill me now!" :)
I remember on my Unst v1, where I ran out of yarn, lots of people (including non-knitters) suggested I just do a different/narrower edge and be done with it... I gave it a lot of thought and realized that the cool (but difficult/time consuming) edge IS the selling point for me. So, I'm edging along, singing my song... trying not to look at how far I have yet to go before I 'bring home the gold' too! :D
Have a great week! More next time (of what? I have no idea!) :)
