Last night's party at Ruth's was fun. Most of it was spent watching the third game of the World Series. Most of the party goers were rooting for Colorado but Ruth and I were rooting for Boston, who were able to counter Colorado's threat and the high altitude to win. The theme was pirates so after the game we were watching the first "Pirates of the Caribbean".

I went as a corporate raider, Capt. Maurinda Pocquette of International Acquisitions, LLC. The fact that I was dressed to the nines was shocking in itself. It was fun passing out business cards and talking about my minions out hunting targets.

Knitting update

The Twisted Stitch Gauntlets so far aren't coming along. I found a major mistake (a two row jump in the chart) in the hand then found others where the twists were going in the wrong direction, so I ripped down to the beginning of the hand chart. So far I haven't worked on the gloves since but I'll get back to them. In the meantime I've whipped up more stitch markers and worked on a couple of wips: the Clapotis in Blue Heron rayon and Opal Lollipop socks.

ROFL! Love the corporate raider; looking good there, and oh gawd, minions... Man, I'd never have made it with the manicure. Not that I've ever had one, but when I used to wear polish, I'd invariably screw it up horrible and have to make a hasty fix. Plus I could never do anything with long nails--except break them. Fortunately they finally came out with good press-ons. [g] Your manicure looks gorgeous. I am officially envious.

And so does the Clapotis!
