Stockings #4

Heels have been turned and gusset decreases are nearly complete on one, and part of the way there on the other. What remains is finishing the foot, decreasing for the toes, washing and blocking. I should be done before the weekend, which means I can pick up the cool fun socks again. YAY. I received only 1 pair of socks last night instead of 2 (boo).

I need to get my stuff together for the weekend cause I am staying the night at G2's place so that we can leave directly from there to drive to Lupercalia. Tim is teaching 3 classes on Medieval Games at Con of the North this weekend so he will be missing the event. I am sad because this was one of the earlier events that we hooked up at when we first started dating and it's always been an easy anniversary marker.

Lupercalia is always a laid back event and it's nice for visiting; that and there is an excellent meat market around the corner from the site. My friend is sitting vigil for the Chivalry and I am bringing a canopy to mark his vigil space. I think this will be the 5th time my baldaccino has been used for a vigil. I need to make sure that I have all the pieces since I haven't used it since my vigil almost 2 years ago. (dang)

Jack and I got engaged at Lupercalia the year of the really nasty ice storm (would have been.. 2001; and we didn't announce it for about a month because we wanted to tell our parents first and in person), so it must be the event for anniversaries. We haven't made it back to another one since then, though, and this weekend will be no different. *shrug*

So, pardon my ignorance, but what does sitting vigil involve?
