Our yarnbombing was a great success. Here's a link to photos I took there:

Yarnbombing

Hi - I've been so swamped in work for several months that knitting had really fallen by the wayside. Now I'm deciding which laid-aside project to finish first.

Pecan Grove Scarf finally! :)

Well, it's been such an insanely busy month that I didn't have much time for knitting but now that I'm on more or less vacation, I've been getting some in. One of the priorities, since it was for a friend here in Seattle and I leave on Tuesday, was the Pecan Grove scarf I began last month.

WIP and Travel

I'm working on lace again, though it's simple lace. Wasn't really planning to but typically, i was in a yarn shop and saw something I really liked, which seemed to scream the name of a good friend in Seattle, and since I'm visiting in October, what better excuse to buy yarn?

A F.O. with a below-the-belt name...

I've been a bit scattered with my knitting lately...a couple pairs of socks on the needles, a lace shawl that was going great till something got ripped out by accident and I haven't had the courage to wither tink back several rows or try and reconstruct it. And I'm 1/4 of the way into a Spectra scarf, thanks to someone who shared it here. :)

Miracle of Miracles - 2 FOs!

I haven't been doing lots of knitting just lately; the weather has grown beautiful, there's a lot of work, a garden screaming for my attention, and I'm also forcing myself to get out there and date. Which has been mostly nice. :)

What's with the shout box?

Every time I try to enter anything I get a "validation error." Earlier I'd log out and back when that happened but now that doesn't work either. Any clues?
