I just returned from a long weekend in Vegas with Joe and some good friends. It was fab! The highlight of the weekend was seeing the Cirque du Soleil show 'Love'; a tribute to The Beatles. I think Cirque du Soleil performances are spectacular, and this was enhanced by a great compilation of Beatles tunes. Loved it!

Other than that, I walked my little legs off - up the length and breadth of the strip. I'd never been to Vegas before and everything is mind blowingly massive. The hotels are essentially mini towns all under one roof. So large in fact that it's easy to lose your bearings in them. But, they are amazing to see and experience. It was such a fun weekend and a great way to spend Valentines.

A little knitting content: I did have a Noro sock for company on the flight. I fell in love with the colours in this sock yarn a little while ago and was lucky enough to stumble across some in a local yarn store recently.

And last but not least - the new Rowan magazine was waiting for me when I got home. Yay! Love it, love it, love it! Soo many more projects to add to the queue. Not enough time to knit them.

Hope you had a great Valentines weekend with loved ones,

Ah, "Vegas", I bet that was fun. I love Cirque du Soleil, too. The last time I went there, I think I slept about 5 hours, and that was a 5 day trip!
