Quick Drive-by Post

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.

That yarn looks good enough to eat.

Mmmm. (hey, is it lunchtime yet?)

I've been wrestling with my socks. I'll learn how to post pics from my camera (once I find said camera) on my blog someday and drop you some pics.
