I am finally feeling caught up after my to quick trip to California. It was a wonderful trip that went by far to quickly. I had a bit of rough time jumping back into routine here, there was a lot planned the first few days after my return, including packing up my suitcase and heading off to a hockey tournament with SeaBass. Things have settled now and hockey season is wrapping up, always bitter sweet, we get our weekends back to do other things, but I will miss watching the kids play the game they love so much.
Stitches West was fun, spending the time with Mom and Shannon was the highlight of the event. Of course I bought some fiber and yarn while I was there, I don't have any pictures to show off right now, and I am not sure I will post any, the fiber and yarn folks that read this blog have already seen the goods I brought home.
I started the beaded shawl kit that I bought at Stitches on Tuesday. I feel like I am making good progress on it and the lace portion is simple enough I can listen to the TV or an audio book while I knit. My goal is to complete one pattern repeat every day at that rate it will take me 34 days to finish the project. Here are a couple of pictures of the project, the pictures did not come out so well even though I pinned it out real quick so you can see the pattern more clearly. I don't think the pictures do the yarn colour any justice and don't show off the beading well.
