Lifehouse in Concert!!!

First, before the concert, I cast on for Embossed Leaves socks (favorite socks IWP). Four times, I took it out and re-did it. I just couldn't read the directions and follow them. Should be simple, but noooo. Several hours later, I cast on for the last time. I got it right...the twisted rib followed the tubular cast on perfectly. Finally:
Then I knit for a while, so very pleased, loving the pattern and having so much fun. Then, on reflection decided that this lovely Socks That Rock was competing with the pattern:

I frogged:Ugh. I redid it all in Knitpicks Essential sock yarn in brown. So far so good. Picture to come!

BUT THE MOST IMPORTANT HAPPENING:
I saw Lifehouse in concert!!!!
It was so exciting to see them in person. The kids loved it, we knew lots of teenagers there (and mom even really enjoyed it although she didn't know them already).
Yeah, I know, these pictures are terrible. It's not my fault. Someone was playing with my camera and so it ran out of batteries. I borrowed another, really, really cheap camera and took a picture. They were closer than it looks. It was terrific to be there, with the music thundering with a purpose and a tenacious desperation in it. Meaningful to me.

I'm so bad with current music groups. But this is a name I recognize. A few years ago I drove my son to school and we heard a song by this group everyday. And everyday I would ask him, 'Who is this?'.

And he would say Lifehouse.
And for the life of me....
I can't remember the song now.
But I liked it :o)

At first I thought you meant Lifelight which has a big 3 day christian concert here every labor day and I was 'whaaaat? Its over?" but then I re-read what you wrote and Oh.The last concert I went to was at lifelight and it was the Newsboys and I had to sit in a field for 6 hours to get a seat and there was so many people that I could bearly see them! But the kids loved it.

Glad you enjoyed the concert. I think you'll be very happy with the solid embossed leaves... but I do love that STR. Hmmm, I think I have a hank of the same in my drawer. I better pull it out.
