75th Fur Rondy!!

There are some things that are so special about living in Alaska! The Fur Rondy is one of them!! Today kicks off the 75th anniversary - which I think is pretty amazing! It has had some rough years as it costs quite a bit to put on! I have been going to Fur Rondy events my entire life and cannot imagine not getting to see the sled dogs, or any of the the awesome events that happen. John and I will be sitting down when he gets home to plan out which events we don't want to miss!! Definitely the start of the Iditarod, the running of the Reindeer, etc. I can't wait!!

Also on the knitting olympics front, I am into the body of Corbin's vest, hoping to finish that up tonight and do the steeking etc. tomorrow. Noah's vest is going to need a little reworking because his head is huge! so I think I am going to put in buttons on one shoulder for his......

  1. Wow, look at you knitting queen. Too funny about Noah's giant head... buttons will be cute though! I love Rondy too, we should go see the snow sculptures or something together!
