Good morning!  I had a great weekend.  My BF, Jaime, and I went to Austin, TX for the Annual ROT Rally on his Harley.  This is a Rally for motorcycles and it is held at Travis County Expo Center.  We usually get an RV spot and stay from Wednesday to Sunday.  However, this year, we decided to get a Hotel Room on 4th street and just see the crowds on 6th Street on Friday night.  We left Friday morning and got to Driftwood, TX to eat some BBQ at the Salt Lick.  Then off to downtown Austin to check into our hotel and then we went to the Iron Cactus to meet some friends for a couple of drinks.  The night life on 6th Street was fun, but not as 'crazy' as in previous years.  We still had a great time going to Coyote Ugly, The Stand, The Dueling Piano, got some Pizza by the slice, and then off to the hotel room to get some ZZZZ's.

The next morning it was off to have breakfast with our friends.  They asked where we wanted to go and I said "anywhere off Congress" (yes, there is a reason for this).  So we ate at a place called The Woodlands and it was really great.  They make homemade sourdough bread and it was delicious!  One of our friends has always wanted to go to the "Hey Cupcake" trailer so we crossed the street for her to have a cupcake (Yummy).  Then I had to sneak a visit to Hill Country Weavers (the reason I said I wanted to eat somewhere off Congress).  I got some SweetGeorgia CashSilk and the Shattered Sun Shawl pattern.  (I will post pics of it soon).

Later in the afternoon we rode to Barton Springs Drive and stopped at Baby Acapulco's for a drink and to catchup with some other friends (that slept in and did not leave with us for breakfast).  At about 3:30 we decided it was time to drive back to SA on the motorcycle.  We rode the back way through the hill country and the scenery was beautiful!  We made one pit stop in Blanco for a refreshment and to cool off a little.... then back on the road....we made it home at about 5:30.  I was sunburned (just a little) and exhausted.

Now to Sunday...Yup, you guessed it....Knitting!  I worked on my Lintilla and it is coming along just great.  I made it to the 'downhill' part of the knitting.  I finished the 22 pattern repeats of the body pattern and I was able to start the pattern repeats of the edging pattern.  Here is a picture with 5 pattern repeats of the edging pattern done.

This Saturday is WWKIP day......are you knitting somewhere in public??

Happy Monday everyone!
