My brain and my time is my own again, huzzah, huzzah! I never want to go so long between picture posts again. Nor, for that matter, between talking about knitting. Because it turns out that when I sit down to knit, I actually have things worth posting about.
Here are 21 days (more or less, or actually less, for reasons which will be explained) worth of photos from me to you. They are smaller this time because there are 21 of them, which is crazytalk and would be far too annoying if there were as big as usual. There you go.
The Tuscany shawl in its final throes. The final countdown, in fact.
Miyagi disapproves of my slackoff blogging. “Photograph my awesome face! Now post it on the internet! Go!”
Moss is sprouting in our front yard, or at least it was on April 15th. The front yard is kind of shady (sneaky bastard, that) and moss loves it, and I love the moss.
Twig with about-to-burst leaves. Spring! Captured on my walk (?) or on my way to work (?). One of the two.
Me and Beth, at Sara’s bachelorette party. You don’t get to see the rest of the pictures from that night, because I would like to maintain a good relationship with my parents and my in-laws.

No photo available
Yeah, I was a wreck on Saturday. There were no pictures taken that day. Blerg.
I ordered scrub tops with my business name on them. Hooray!
I cast off the Tuscany shawl that evening, and here are all the stitch markers I used. Piles and piles of shiny goodness.
Occasionally Miyagi shoots fireworks out her ears.
Tuscany shawl all pinned out!
I saw this sign outside a funky resale shop in town, with a shelf of pretty shells. I took one of the pointy spiral ones.
The card we gave Sara and Brian. I did photoshop this one. Learning!
The dance floor at Sara & Brian’s wedding. It was jumping, for the most part.
Lights at the knit night hangout. Yes, it’s a pretty boring picture. It’s the best I could do, the others were worse.
Vines on the library wall. Dried vine, shriveled grape, and fresh leaves.
Tulip at the corner of Pine and Third.
Collating the grant, the giant project for work that ate my brain. This was the scene at about 4pm on Wednesday. I was scheduled to leave at 5pm, and had to staple and box up 16 copies before I left for vacation. Needless to say, I went home and drank the whiskey when I was done.
On Femiknitter’s couch with Tuscany across my lap and my newest project (not yet put up on Ravelry), the two-row Noro striped scarf. Kureyon 40 and 209. Size 6 / 4.0mm needles. Vacations rule.
Bob and Pearl of the Toilet Paper Tube Army greeted me on Friday morning. Sneaky Femiknitter left them to taunt me.
Femiknitter and me at Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival. In enormous sunglasses. Absurd, even. It was an awesome time, I bought great yarn and stuck to my budget (!!) and took fun livestock pictures (more on that later).
Tree blooms with the beginnings of leaves. After NinjaHusband picked me up from the airport we went to Whole Foods in Naperville for lunch, then came home and I unpacked, then we played frisbee golf (or disc golf or frolf), then we walked around our neighborhood. And the neighborhood is where I snapped this happy picture. I took another picture that afternoon, one that was much less happy (broken bird egg on our driveway). This is the clear winner.
And there you have it. Now I’m all caught up. Pictures of sheep & co. later this week, along with my yarn haul. And yes, I bought more sock yarn even though I have more than enough oh my god.
