The Utah Shakespearean Festival has been a part of our summer for 26 years. It never disappoints and is a highlight of our summer. In recent years we have also enjoyed visiting Neena and Don in their lovely home. Neena knows how to throw a party and can cook up a storm...all by herself. Another highlight was meeting Heather. You can see a picture of 'the grrls' on Neena's post. Next time we meet, Heather, we'll have more time to chat!
Last year I told you about Neena's new home and our trip to USF in this post. Check out the rock wall she and her dh have been building. This year they have been working on the steps that will lead up to the road. All this rock, the wall and the steps, has been carried and placed by hand. Neena is one awesome grrl. Each year I love to visit with Will, Lear and Juliet. It's always fun to renew their acquaintance. Lear still has trouble with his knitting and has a bad reaction each time he drops a stitch. Lace was more than he could handle, I'm afraid.
Camelot was our favorite play this year (all the plays were wonderful but, this one really stood out). The costumes for the soldiers were knitted! They used a heavy weight nylon yarn and then painted the public side with gold paint. It was very effective chain male. I wonder who knit all that armor?
Will is always waiting with open arms to embrace me and my knitting (note sock in his right hand).
This year Juliet tried to get away with my FBS, just as Neena did last year with Charlotte. And while she did look beautiful in the violet color, I just couldn't part with it. Maybe I can teach Juliet to knit next year.
