Recess 24/7 this weekend

I was going over my upcoming weekend with DH, and he turned to me and said, “Your life is like 24/7 recess!” Well, it is a pretty sweet extended weekend I’ve got lined up. Knitting, music, celebration…

Friday is the RCYC MKAL cast on party at Twisted, 5 to 8 p.m. Refreshments and prizes! Come knit with me!

Saturday I’m teaching Tink Drop Frog, how to fix mistakes at Twisted, from 1-3. I love teaching this class; it’s very empowering to new-ish knitters. There’s still space in class, if you want to register.

My baby turns 21 on Saturday, too. Where did the time go?

Sunday I’m singing with my music besties (The Pie Birds, aka the Divas) in church. Monday, even more of us (The Day Old Pastries) are singing at this MLK Day Remembrance and lunch packing event. The NE Portland Backpack Program provides weekend lunch sacks for children at risk for hunger who don’t have the school lunch program on the weekend. During the 2012-2013 school year we are providing about 5,000 weekend lunch sacks (11,000 lunches) to 164 children at four locations. Come sing with us, and pack lunches with us! The event is free, but bring a can of chili to donate. We’ll be at Maranatha Church, NE 12th Ave between Skidmore and Mason in Portland, from 1-3 p.m. Details here.


Tuesday, the Thrumbelina KAL begins! Two more days to enter to win a copy of the Thrumbelina pattern. Check out the blog post for details.

And now the moment you’ve been waiting for: The winner of this lovely Knitted Wit single fingering yarn (silver lining and madge)

I hope you’re with me for part or all of this weekend fun, in person or via the interwebs! Looking forward to it all.

  1. Thank you so much! I’m so excited for the MKAL and of course for the yarn crawl! See you in February! 😀

  2. Congratulations to Samantha!

    You do live a fun life, and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that!

  3. Congratulations, Samantha! Enjoy that beautiful yarn!

    I love it! 24/7 recess! My baby will be turning 19 in June, but his youngest sister turns 21 in May. She’s a half-pint compared to the rest of us and no one will believe she is 21. My eldest turns 28 at the end of January and the middle daughter turns 26 in March. Where does that time go? Now I get to watch a granddaughter and grandson speed along to their first birthdays in August and October. Cheers to your baby! I hope it is a wonderful and safe 21st celebration!

  4. You do have a sweet life — good for you!
