living and learning

Some things I've learned this week:

1. If a knitted gift is finished early (Ravelry members, look here for an outdated shot), it can be used by the knitter on a chilly, dreary afternoon. This may be considered testing out the merchandise for quality control purposes. Upon item receiving the Knitter's Stamp of Approval, the knitter has time to decide whether to keep the item for herself. :-)

2. If a Parsons Dance guy jumps in the air repeatedly at precisely the same time a strobe light turns on, it looks like he's floating. If he is super duper good at this -- and he was -- it looks effortless to the audience.

3. The Gilbert and Sullivan Society's production of Iolanthe is enchanting in every way, for all ages.

4. Ravelry member + homeschooler + neighbor (relatively) = easy conversation and a great night out. It ends up she remembers me from a homeschooling list waayyyy back, which was a pretty fun surprise.

5. There are 3 Cirque du Soleil shows in cities where we'll be in the next few months. Oh, the temptation!
