It's been a while

My computer is still on the fritz and I have not been good about writing.

I have a number of pictures to upload, I don't know why I have been putting it off.

The blue version of the Forest Canopy Shawl is done, blocked and put away, all without one picture. The green striped one is almost done - I hope to take a photo when it's blocking.

The cruise is less than 3 weeks away now and we are planning the luggage to take. I have to determine which projects to take - the Little Gem is the wheel that is going along. I just have to figure out what fiber I want to spin. I have over a pound of fiber to spin for mom's sweater, I could take that. I also have some gorgeous dyed silk that I am thinking of taking. It will take hours and hours to spin, but I don't know if the humidity will be an issue.

As for knitting. I will look in my stash for some handspun sock yarn and start a souvenier sock. I have the blue ones from last years trip and my red ones from SOAR. I think memory socks is a wonderful idea. I will also take a lace project - I am thinking that I need to try another pattern for lace now that I have the Forest Canopy Shawl pattern memorized. I still have the cobweb yarn that I dyed at SOAR that I want to knit into a shawl. I have to find the perfect pattern for it. I also have another skein of the chocolate polworth and silk that needs to be turned into something beautiful.

Are you on your cruise now? Thanks for the encouraging note on my weight loss on my blog. This is a very difficult challenge for me, but one I must do to regain healthy knees and back. Looking forward to seeing pictures when you get to it! Your work is so good. I can only aspire to such skill!
