So If You've Been Wondering About the Lack of Blogging.....

In the last 2 weeks, I've hosted 3 parties, gone out 3 times, had two different rounds of house guests, gone on a long weekend to Oregon, baked THREE chocolate zucchini cakes, made two batches of pickles, and met some friends for lunch. What I have NOT done so much of:

* sleep
* knit
* sew

We returned from Oregon Sunday around 3:30, and Andy's parents arrived around 5 for a quick visit on their way to Seattle. My little sidekick was obviously thrilled to see them as well,

because he promptly brought my mother-in-law a dead mouse, which he hid inside her shoe. Luckily, she's a cat lover, so she could appreciate it as a "gift," though I was, of course, mortified. I guess I should be thankful he didn't recreate the live mouse floor show that he provided for one dinner guest.

I have finally reached repeat #12, so one more and I'll be halfway:
and it still continues to look exactly the same. I think I'm going to do a little minor blocking with the iron just to keep my spirits up.

And, in case you're wondering why I didn't knit more on our weekend trip....It really was that pretty.
