Progress, I has it

It turns out that I only worked on one project during my vacation, but I got a lot done!

It looked huge until I held it up to Eric and saw how much farther I still had to go. But still, a lot accomplished! I knew that 5 hours of watching Pride & Prejudice had to be more productive than it felt like at the time. Next time I'll take some close-ups of the pattern; I realize you can't see much from this shot.

Before my vacation, I started another project. The Lace Ribbon Scarf from the Spring issue of Knitty, made with Noro Sock that I bought at Webs last month.

I don't especially enjoy knitting lace, and I don't really like knitting scarves, but somehow I ended up knitting a lace scarf. We'll see how long it lasts. I love the yarn though.

I was going to bring the camera to Maine with me, but decided at the last minute that I didn't want to carry that much stuff. Of course, it turns out that I would have had many great photo opportunities. I knew I'd see llamas at my sister's house, but also she got baby chicks the day after I arrived - 52 of them! I have hardly ever seen so much cuteness in one place. Also, I saw alpacas, sheep, and a very cute bunny rabbit that may or may not have been wild. Next time I go I'll take the camera, I promise!
