Yesterday was the Black Sheep Gathering in Eugene. I met up with the Portland knitties for breakfast at the butt-crack of dawn and we carpooled down. M's DH (also an M now that I think of it!) drove us down so we could all knit & chat in the car. I wore my newly finished Montego Bay - which was fitting since I started it on the trip down last year. And in a complete cycle of knitting - one of the other gals cast on for Montego Bay on the way home with some yarn she picked up there.
It was a lot of fun, lots of yarn, lots of sheep (noisy noisy sheep), and some very cute alpacas. Unfortunately, I have no photographic evidence of the fun because my rechargeable batteries are no longer recharging. I keep taking my camera out and trying to get pictures... but I only get about one good one before the batteries die. I made sure to charge them all night before Black Sheep, and while it had enough power to turn on, it refused to actually take any pictures. I want to do my part to save the planet, but dude! Hold a charge!
Now I'm home with batteries but no one to take my picture,...Montego Bay (pattern by Amy Singer - Interweave Knits Summer 2007)
Yarn: Art Yarns Regal Silk, about 2 skeins.
Modifications: I didn't do the fringe, the scarf is quite long as is.
Comments: It's an easy pattern, but I still managed to make quite a few mistakes by not paying attention. I had it down pat by the last foot or so, though. =P
And here is my current knitting WIP, Soleil. I had set it aside back in October and only picked it up again a few weeks ago. I really hope to finish it up before I go to Thailand.
In theory I should be able to get it done, but I've got a lot of work to do in the next month & a half... and I've been far less productive than I thought I'd be. It seems my batteries don't hold much of a charge either.
