She, her looking at me
Staring! Deep brown eyes
Deep deep brown hair
to come home

Let me just say that this is one of the times that I am glad that I didn't chicken out and stay at home. And, I am glad that I did leave Annie with my mom for the night for several reasons. 1 - Because Katie and I get to have quality mother/daughter time and 2 - Annie would have been hard to control with that many kids around. Maybe we'll go back on a weekend, when there are less children around and I can quietly explain to Annie the rules. As it was, I was followed like a shop lifter in Tiffany's because I had taken this picture:
It's a halographic flower! But, because I didn't ask first, they started watching me like a hawk. I do know the rules about cameras in museums. 1 - there are some items that are loan, so you can't take pics of them & 2 - no flash pics. I didn't use my flash, it would have ruined the flower, but I did forget to ask first. Oops! But, it's very unsettling to have men in suits and earpieces follow you everywhere. Is that what's like to have body guards?
As for knitting content, while I was watching Gone With the Wind, I casted on for a pair of Simply Lovely Lace Socks from IK's Spring '06 issue in the red Knit Picks Pallette. I did 3 repeats on the leg during the movie. I complete 2 more while waiting for Kaite after school yesterday, and 1 more while at the resturant last night. Now I am ready to start the heel.
