A knitterly weekend in Ashland

Ok, people, we have a lot to cover to catch up from my last post, 11 days ago, so let's get moving. Today we are covering "Where the hell ya been?".

Set the Way Back Machine for 10 days ago, and picture yourself embarking on a 400 mile journey (one way!) to soak up the theater experience that is the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. What do you need for the journey?

Travelling companions. That's my brother up front and wizknitter in the back with me.
Car toys

Something to eat
Ashland Dinner

A place to stay. We enjoyed Ashland's Tudor House, both inside and out, all weeekend.

It does take a bit of coordination to line up all the supplies needed for a great weekend in Ashland, but we pulled it off. And this closing shot shows the results - here you see me tired, but successful, and brimming with culture. We saw Up, Winter's Tale, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Diary of Anne Frank, and the Importance of Being Earnest on this trip. We will pick up the rest of the season in August when we return.

Full of culture, we drove home Sunday, and the non-drivers kept on knitting until it got too dark to tink a simple lace pattern, which turned out to be very close to the 505 split from 5 near Sacramento. At this point, the knitters packed it in and took nice little naps, but the driver had to keep going for another 200 miles to get us home again. In the end, a long, productive, stimulating, fun weekend was had by all. And that's where the hell I been, at least part of the time. Stay tuned for our next topic.. "what the heck you been doing all this time?"

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend. The sweater looks great--you'll be done in no time. Are those your Jaywalkers?

Glad to hear where the heck y'all have been! I love knitting while DH drives. And all that culture! I've been relegated to watching animated movies for too long.

Thank God at least *someone's* blogging about Ashland! My 14-hour days have been keeping me away from knitting and blogging, but it's fun to see your photos!
