The Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City was so much fun and everyone (almost everyone) had a great time. As soon as we arrived Moxie jumped back in the car and wanted to go home. But, here are Moxie and Murphy sitting in the backseat with the knitting just before we drove away. They were excited about the trip but unhappy to share the seat with the knitting so, it came up front with me (where it really wanted to be).
We arrived at my sister’s home in Cedar City and Charlotte spent the afternoon on the couch (my finished knitting also had a fine time).
Kersti had a conversation with the coffee table ornaments (the scull on the left is real!) and also visited with Sam the tarantula.
The house is beautiful and only a few months old. Here is the rock wall my sister and her husband have been building with their own hands (and backs!) and the view from the deck on the back of the house. The sky really is that color!
And here is my sister cooking dinner for 16 and then at the party wearing Charlotte, the only knitting to come to the party. This is the last time I saw Charlotte! Fickle Charlotte? She must have loved that couch!
The knitting also made it to the Shakespearean Festival plays. Here is Kersti getting a ride in the candy basket.
She really wanted more chocolate but we headed over to say hello to the ticket lady.
The Cloverleaf sock had the best time as she was able to visit with Will. Doesn’t he look interested?
Then Juliet took a look and said the Cloverleaf was as beautiful as a rose. King Lear also tried to knit a row but had a bad reaction when he dropped a stitch.
While at the pool our friends inspected and approved of the knitting.
This is Camille and Diane who we travel with each year to the Festival.
Sharon said not to 'knock Cedar City'. It is a very beautiful place. You can see the stars at night, including the Milky Way. There are many views of red rock canyons that take your breath away. Zion Park is 1 hour south and Bryce Canyon is 1 hour east. You can hike, bike and enjoy its unique scenery. BUT, this year for the first time in 25 years we had a fine dining experience in a decent restaurant. 90 percent of the people who live in Cedar City have never been to one of the Festival plays (that's in 44 years!) and there is NO LYS.
Back at the house Mr. Scull thought he’d give knitting a try, too.
