Radio Silence

Sorry for the dearth of updates. I have still been monagamously knitting on the Moth, despite my best hope of finishing being in 3rd place. I just read Beth's update, and she and I are neck and neck, I feel my competetive spirit re-awakening! I am well into the Twin Leaf border, so really not too far to go, but man those rows are getting long. I ordered another 4th ball of yarn (not from Webs, they were out of stock - ack!!) but don't quite need it yet. The missing ball continues to be missing. My prediction is that I will find it as soon as I am done blocking the shawl.

In prize patrol news, Cheryl has just posted the winners of the bet-placing contest, and Anne is now taking entries for bets on who'll finish last, in the Lantern Rouge tradition of the Tour de France - you have until Friday to enter, and there are some really wonderful prizes, so click your way over and make sure you're entered.

I have the next few days off from work, as PumpkinBoy's school is closed, and he and I will be headed to the South Shore to visit with my parents for a bit, so I hope to be able to make a little more day-to-day progress than I can when I'm working. Next update will be Friday.

Wow, that's fast knitting. I saw your comment at Beth's about wanting to knit Swallowtail and I'll tell you what I told her. One skein of sea silk = really gorgeous Swallowtail.

You can still do it. Or Beth. I'm happy either way.
Have fun visiting in my neck of the woods.

You go, grrl!

Your Favorite Color Swap package is being mailed out on Friday, one day late. I took a vacation day today and intended to go to the post office this afternoon, but I fell asleep after lunch and woke up after 6:00, so Friday it will be. The box should still get there soon, as it doesn't have too far to travel. . . and that's the only hint I'm giving!
