There's No Place Like Home

So, I managed to do a little knitting while I was away thanks in no small part to the large amount of wine that my brother in law was serving. Thank you, Saint Arko.

I did a little lace. Ok, I managed to finish all of clue #5 with no major mistakes. Very good, considering the wine consumption. (I think I may be going through withdrawl. To help out, my husband has been serving me Coronas each evening since our return. Good man.) I think the MS3 is coming along nicely. I'm trying to have faith in the wing even though it freaked me out at the beginning. I'm not a "Just-go-with-it" kinda gal. I like to be in charge at all times. This mystery stole has been a challenge to say the least.

I also managed to finish a pair of socks in the Regia Bamboo which are going on the Christmas pile. I found this yarn a little splitty and it has a lot of drape. I'm not really sure if I like it or not but the socks turned out nicely.

When I got home, I had a little parcel waiting for me. The good people of Knitpicks decided to welcome me home with my order. (T. was very excited, let me tell you.)

I have a lot of knitting to do and when I'm not knitting I plan to read about knitting. EZ is my new muse. She's right up there with the Harlot.

If you'll excuse me, my stash beckons.....

J, Elizabeth has been my muse for over 20 years! She is the great high priestess of knitting for me!
