The kids and I headed to Heathrow last night with Harriss, and we've seen her safely on board her flight home to the US. Bon voyage, sweet niece of mine! I hope you had as much fun with us as we had having you here.
Now, it's back to reality, and house-shovelling, and de-cluttering, and all of that jazz.
I'm whipped, but did start an interesting new knit on the train to London yesterday. It's the Revontuli shawl. [Go look; I'll wait. It's a worthy pattern!] Revontuli means rainbow in Finnish, and it looks like the perfect pattern to show off a strongly striping yarn. And strongly striping yarn is something I have, since I purchased a single skein of Noro Sock at the IKnit festivities. I believe the colorway is this one (picture nicked from Flickr), with earthtones and a vivid purple. I have enough to make a shoulder scarf-sized shawlette, methinks. I've seen at least one other on Ravelry that used a single skein.
I'm almost done with the Soctor Who socks (at the toe of sock 2) so I hope to get a decent picture in daylight for posting.
Hope all is well with all of you Gentle Readers.
