That Sucks

Well that sucks. Tomorrow is the big Concert on the Commons (The Rolling Stones!), and it's supposed to rain. All week the forecast was a 40% chance of showers, but now it's rain starting in the evening, probably about the time The Stones will take the stage. That sucks, but I've got my waterproof LL Bean shoes, and I bought us each a Dollar Store poncho to take (basically a clear garbage bag 50"x80" with a hood). Ya gotta do whatcha gotta do! Somehow I don't think we'll really notice the rain... Well, not til after the show anyways. Here's a couple of pics I found on the web. The first is their 9-story high stage. Is that gonna be awesome or what! Plus there's sections that come out of the stage into the crowd that the band can come out on. Too bad you can't take cameras. The second picture is of the bleacher seating for VIP tickets. There's an East Circle set and a West Circle set. (Yes, I am an idiot -- I got these tickets. I had no designs on standing for 10+ hours. Not allowed to take chairs of any kinds.) Our seats are right smack-dab in the middle of East Section C, Seats 22-24 in Row 16.

My poor brother doesn't know the city at all, and he's so scared we'll get separated. I don't think we will. Our bleacher section is supposed to have its own washrooms and concession stands, so there's no need to leave that area. (I'm sure those Gold Circle sections will be fenced in with security at the entrances to keep anyone out who has regular tickets. Plus I'm sure there's people there to help him find his way back if he can't find his seat.)

Been working steadily on the aran sweater. I tried to get a picture of the progress so far, but they didn't turn out well. The batteries for the camera need recharging, so I'll have to try again another night. Here's a not-so-good pic of my Mystery Sock. I'm using Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Gold Hill. In real life you can see the braid better, but the variagated yarn does obscure it. It's mostly stocking stitch anyways, so it doesn't matter much. These are going to be hard to photograph. (I foresee strange looks from the neighbors as I trot around the yard armed with camera, taking pictures of my feet and socks hanging in trees...)

Will report on the concert happenings on Sunday or Monday!

Happy Knitting!

Awww, I'm so curious to read all about the concert - you'll be having an absolutely amazing time, even if it'll rain - after all, with those cool LLBean shoes nothing bad can happen, no? ;)
I love how your socks are coming along, the yarn and the pattern are so awesome!

How was the concert?
Found out last night at 9 that my brother went.
Lots of nice knitted items around the shop; are they all your work? Nothing jumped out at me to buy; but both kids made small purchases.
