Hello, Yay for Progress, Goodnight...

When anniversary vacation calls, posts are temporarily suspended...

Yes, I meant to update before we left for our camping trip but then
ran out of time what with packing and jumping around and all. We had
tons of fun, saw an otter, some deer, and numerous squirrels and
chipmunks, went hiking up gorges, (me falling) down hills,
investigating every yonder hill and dale, had campfires every night,
bought a new tent to avoid husband killing old obnoxious zipper-broken
tent in the middle of the night (and to preserve my sanity after I held
the flashlight for him for 20 minutes at a time while he "fixed" the
zipper), and just had a grand old time. Here are a few pictures that I
meant to post before we left. I don't have the pics from our vacation
off the camera yet so that will have to wait.

Just a note, I worked on the shawl the entire trip down (a
five-hour-trip) and the entire trip back, while we were there and
around the campfire to the light of the fire and lantern. Oh yeah
baby, I am on my way toward being done (well, technically I am only
about 65% of the way done but that is 32% more than I had when I
left!) So the teeny tiny pictures of the shawl shown below are
deceptive! I am way further than that!! Yeah, I'm running far, far
away from that horrible snail-paced knitting bog...

First some kitty pictures (because he's so cute...and has no idea what
is in store for him when tomorrow evening we bring home our puppy...)

DH's idea of a splendid place for a kitty- right on all my clean linens...the nerve!

I guess he doesn't seem to have much of a problem with it, though:

Next, you can see my splicing with this yarn worked out remarkably
well. Join not at all noticeable and no worries about mis-estimating the
amount of yarn left for a row:

Here's an idea of the length, albeit scrunched:

The diamond design and emerging color scheme (if there is one). The colors are better in the second pic below:

And lastly, Knuckles and Abbie enjoying some sun...about a week before his I-swear-I-fell-out-of-the-window escape. Naughty Little Kitty...

So I bid you Goodnight...
