Let's Hear it for the Yarnery Family Singers!

Ravelry rocks! You all knew that, I know, but I just had to say it. Thanks to Ravely, I actually heard about an event before it happened... and, managed to score not only a ticket for myself, but tickets for one of my dear friends and my knitting sister. We braved the blizzard (and the University of Saint Thomas parking ramps), yep, I said blizzard... and enjoyed an evening with The Harlot, herself.

The ride home was treacherous. What should have taken 1 hour, took 2... there was fishtailing, there was near zero visibility at times, and there was a large snowplow in the middle of the highway coming way too close for comfort, despite the fact that I was as far over onto my unplowed shoulder as I dared to be, considering the deep ditch just beyond... I was thankful for modern technologies such as traction control.

I'm still recovering from the stress of it all (that's excuse-speak for 'been to busy to compose a brilliant, or at least slightly above average blog post') but I had to take a moment and share these brilliant clips from the evening's pre-Stephanie entertainment. The folks at The Yarnery were/are fabulously clever and talented, and I'm so glad someone captured these moments on video! Enjoy!

These clips make me giggle, a lot.

That's it for tonight, I'm falling asleep.

Happy knitting-

Man - I am so sad that I had to miss it! I can't wait to see how Stephanie blogs that particular appearance!

What clever and creative people. Not to mention brave to get up and sing like that !

That was awesome. What was Stphanie's reaction to all that.

I was laughing so hard, I ended up crying!

That is just too funny. I just finished performing as Sister Margaretta in "The Sound of Music" and had my fill of "Maria". What a fun twist to a great song :)
