New Year Shenanigans

Happy 2009!

I will start with the knitting content. As we put away the Christmas decorations I am taking breaks to add a little to the Clapotis. It has been a pretty easy project and I can't wait to be finished with it. I love the Ice Queen cowl/smoke ring that I finished and will take a picture of it with someone wearing it and will post that later.

Now on to the fun we had in S.F.

Our friend Cody really knows how to throw a party. When he has one at New Years we always try to be there. I think the first one that we went to was over a decade ago. This year was a blast.

Cody (wearing the entrelac beanie) rents this warehouse space in South San Francisco and has, over the years, turned it into a fabulous home. He calls it The Cabana. The bedroom is behind that window and there is a TV/lounge room just past those black curtains.

He works in catering so feeding a small crowd is no big deal. The food was fabulous!

Cody and his friends are a creative artistic bunch. Most of them go to Burning Man and have a zest for life like no other group of people that I have ever met.

So, this guy pulled up with the Photo Boof. It's just like the photo booths that we had when we were kids. You go in and push a button and it takes four pictures of you.

The guy that designed the Photo Boof has it rigged to a computer and a projector. It shot a "screensaver" like progression of the pictures it took onto this white truck/van. (that's my silhouette)

Also in front of Cody's place was the "Yat Tub" (think yacht) Another free thinker....he turned this little boat into a jacuzzi! Uh, no I didn't go in. But I did check the water temp, it was nice and hot!

The party went on through the night and into the morning. I took pictures, but, photos of people dancing just don't look as bloggable as you might think. Justin the DJ played the best music. there were balloons and champagne at midnight and a parade of the most interesting attire.

I like going to S.F. it reminds me that there is is more beyond my tract home.
I would say that there is only one down side to this little visit. The Cabana is hard to heat and is down right COLD.

Kip took this picture of me all bundled up in front of my laptop. I was googling a question that came up. What is the different between Cannelloni and Manicotti? If you are wondering too, just click on the link and find out.

We are home now and all caught up on our lost sleep.

I am filled with the usual New Year desire to clean out drawers and organize my life. I call it New Year Nesting.
2008 has been a crazy year...good and bad to the extreme.
I hope that Peace will break out all over the place and prosperity will blossom and cozy up to us all.

Did you make Cody's entrelac beanie?

I made the beanie and when Cody admired it I gave it to him.
