Go Habs Go!

I was lucky enough to be at the Bell Center last night for the Habs' victory against the Rangers. It was the most amazing game I had ever seen, though it did NOT start well. We were actually losing 0-5 by the middle of the second period! After the second period, it was 2-5, which made me feel better, but I did consider leaving early. I'm so glad I didn't! The Habs scored three goals in the third period and Saku Koivu (aka Robyn's boyfriend) scored the winning goal in the shootout. The crowd went wild! I'm so glad I was actually there to see the win!!!

But this is a knitting blog and not a hockey blog, so here are some knitting news for the Montrealers out there. Mouliné is having a big spring sale! Some of the yarn is 60% off! I have to resist though. My yarn closet is starting to get full, I just got new yarn and I still have some gift certificates to Effiloché.

I forgot to mention in my last post that I got the Spring Interweave Knits. There are mixed reviews online, but personally, I think it's a great issue. I think the Auburn Camp Shirt, the Flutter sleeve cardigan, the Mirabella cardigan and the Printed Silk Cardigan are absolutely cute. The socks are in my queue. And I also like the Fountain Hat though I'm not sure it would look good on me. What do you guys think about it?

GO HABS GO!

My boyfriend was great last night in the game! At least Tomas assisted a goal! :) Next time!

I now wish I was at that game!

See you tonight? You coming to NDG Knit Night?

Hey, thanks for the heads-up about the sale at Mouliné! I have missed the last one, will see if I get to this one... but I should resist too, as I've just got enough at Ariadne to last me a (little) while - and I must spin some more, and knit with my handspun!
By the way, I didn't comment on your last post, but I am often available during the day, so if you're still looking for someone to knit with once in a while, let me know.

I'm also a bit soso on the Spring IK (too many cardis?). But I reallt like the Auburn Camp Shirt, the Stripe Dress, the Fountain Hat and the Socks (looks like we have the same taste!).
