Of Josh and Angelus

Not much to report on the knitting front. Mostly I've been tearing around trying to get ready for my trip (4 days and counting). I have been getting some work done on my "Kakhi" Cables. The back is starting to look like it might actually be on its way to becoming a garment:
I'm past the armhole shaping now and have about 4 more inches to knit before I reach the shoulder shaping. I'm loving how this pattern looks, even if it is fussy with all that seed stitch and cable work (I haven't figured out how to do it without a cabling needle). Here's another close-up:

Now that all that exciting knitting is done with (this is a knitting blog after all), I'll move on to what has me the most excited today. Josh Groban! He performed here in Ottawa last night at Scotiabank Place and I had my tickets months ago. Here is a shot of the stage:
It was really impressive! All the panels lit up and had images on them that changed throughout the show. Josh sounded spectacular (no surprise there)! Here's an "action" shot:

For his encore, he came out wearing this Senators jersey which was really awesome. It had Groban 07 on the back, which was pretty cool.

I took lots of photos but I wasn't allowed to use my flash so most of them look like this:

This was an absolutely phenomenal concert and I can't wait for him to come to Ottawa again!

Also on the not knitting front, on Saturday instead of groceries, I came home with this:

This is a thing of beauty! The Sword of Angelus from Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This is the one that features in the 2nd season finale where Buffy stabs Angel and sends him to hell. Yeah, good times. This is my first blade, and hopefully, it's just the beginning!
Well, I guess that's enough of non-knitting stuff for now, hopefully I'll find time to post again before my trip (4 days, did I mention?), that is assuming I have actual knitting progress to report.
