November started out with Joey still out on tour and me adjusting back to home life after my trip to visit him. The band played the Iceland Airwaves festival in Reykjavik and Joey brought me back some lopi wool as a souvenir. This leg of the tour ended with the guys playing two shows opening for Pearl Jam in Dallas and Oklahoma City and I went along for those shows. It was a good time and it was really fun to get to watch the guys play in front of such large crowds. I spent a little time working on charts for a cabled knitting pattern I’ve been working on, and decided I wanted to make a few tweaks to the cables I have been using. The design is going to be a really good one and I’m glad I went back and made the changes, but that also means I have to reknit an entire piece of the design and with the small amounts of knitting time I’ve had lately, it seems to be very slow going at the moment. I’ve also been enjoying having Joey back home for a few days before he heads out again until Christmas. Henry sure hates it when he leaves, so we make sure to spend lots of time snuggling and watching movies in bed when he’s away. We also got to spend a couple of nice days with family for Thanksgiving, which is always a good way to move into the month of December.
