I did get some knitting done on the plane to/from Boston.

My own handspun lace weight alpaca, dyed with with logwood for another Seaman's Scarf.

Carolyn's Hearts and Rosebuds from Myrna Stahman's Shawls & Scarves.

I did 4 repeats of the lace after a provisional cast on. Then I picked up the provisional cast on and started the neck.

Of course, we all know, lace looks less than impressive til it's blocked!

Here's the second sock, knit during training.

Just beginning the gusset.

Yesterday, Mother's Day, we had a very nice family dinner with Paul's family.

Then we headed out for some hiking.

Can anyone tell me what this is? It's located in a wildlife management area.

The eaves are open, so we were thinking it might be a bat-house. But the door, roughly 8"x12", with the little perch area? No clue!

There was a mama goose, sitting on a nest, ducking her head so we wouldn't see the secret she was hiding.

The remainder of a deer carcass, feet black and shiny, looking freshly polished.

And my best fella, looking happy and relaxed in the cachemobile.

What a great day you had! I'm really impressed with the lace weight yarn you spun. JEALOUS! Mine is a tad lumpy. I am using a different type of roving and my lighter spindle. That is harder to get used to compared to the heavier one.

Thank you for your nice words regarding Porter. My small house feels huge now. I don't like it.

Lovely wheel too. I am awaiting the loaner wheel. I'm hoping I get it before school gets out. She says it was hand made. You definitely need to keep me posted on your thoughts.

How is the ski sweater coming along?
