sadly there was no shipbuilding

Dear Blog,

I could not visit you last night because I was at a very excellent concert. The elegant, erudite, enduring, Elvis Costello.

inky ishbel

I've also been working on my Ishbel. First four rows of the lace patten complete.

I promise to try and visit you again tomorrow.

Best,
Suse

oh that would have been a fab show! I'd have missed posting for that. And ishbel.

Another Ishbel? I have just seen Two Little Banshees has started one as well.

What a fabulous way to spend an evening, even without 'Shipbuilding'.

I would forgive all if you sat back a while longer and basked in a reverie of Elvis Costello post concert glow.

Ugh! So envious!! Did he sing 'Alison'? One of myall time favorites.

how lovely to be out at a concert - I'm not familiar with Elvis Costello, but G said he'd have liked tohave gone and that I would have liked it but he was more keen on seeing Megadeth - your Ishbel looks very elegant too.

If you decide to do the how ever many concerts meme (I'd love to see yours), may I suggest installments? - it was quite exhausting.

How cool is that!? Was it great? I bet it was great.

kgirl said...

ahh, Mr Costello.....sigh. Hope it was fabulous!

I've just started an Ishbel too - we're at about the same stage, so we'll have to see who gets there first!!

Ah, green with envy ... on both fronts. I love Elvis Costello (and can't knit a stitch).

matty said...

Lovely! And the shawl is great, too! Imagine, not knitting at a concert... :)

What is your yarn here? Perfectly wonderful colour!

It must have been a wrench , leaving us all , but I'm glad the chap with the specs cheered you up ( or am I thinking of Buddy Holly ? )

Good luck on Ishbel, I keep losing a stitch and ripping back to my life line.

Oh wow, I love the yarn you're working ishbel in - she's going to be amazing!
