60% Chance of Crafting

Our week has been busy-busy so far. On Monday night Bob and I went out to dinner at a great Italian restaurant called Da Boyz, located in the historic Kress building in Old Town Yuma.
The building was built in 1926 to be a five and dime store. Later, when Kress went out of business, the building housed a bakery. It is a really neat place for a restaurant, and the food was excellent.

On Tuesday I went to yoga class. Bob was unable to golf because the winds were blowing too hard and the golf course was closed. Some folks were bothered by the chilly 62 degrees. The fellow mowing the lawns got all dressed up, while the woman behind him was comfortable in short sleeves and sandals.
We went to burger night and had a great time socializing with friends over burgers and a beer.

Now, in between all this galivanting, I have been knitting. I made a hat for grandson, Alex. This is a three color version of Rob's Hat. It requires about 1/2 skein of Vanna's Choice worsted weight yarn in white, and about 1/3 skein each of black and red. I eliminated a couple of rows to make the pattern come out right, but this hat is so stretchy that it is no problem to do that. I have quite a large head and it still fits me just fine, so it probably would fit any adult or teen.

Another hat will be for his sister, Jillian
An Arctic Fox scarf for Eve
A Santa hat for me
And a new Christmas bracelet

On Thursday we had a Christmas concert and steak dinner. Bob and I volunteered to help with decorating which was a lot of fun and gave us the opportunity to meet some really nice people. The ballroom looked very nice when we were done, and the food and entertainment were great, too. 
About 75 guests were there to enjoy the steak dinner and watch the show.

Wishing all of you a wonderful Christmas, Hannukah, Kwaanza, Winter Solstice, or other holiday of your choice!
