Oh Canada

Just checking in before we leave - by this time tomorrow we will be in Montreal. I am bringing my laptop and David's digital camera, so I hope to post some great pictures while I am away.

The MontreShawl is coming along nicely - I will post pictures soon. I am using a pattern from VLT and the silk yarn I purchased from HipKits. It is very crisp - at Communitea on Tuesday I kept calling it crunchy. It looks kinda like a fishing net, I am hoping blocking will do it's magic and I will have a lovely shawl when it is done.

Next post from across the border.....

This Jetset Life is Gonna Kill (me)

Long time no write.

No I did not fall off the face of the earth - just got sidetracked by a large project at work.

I am now back into my usual routine. I played Scrabble with Carolyn on Sunday, I got to go to my SnB yesteday, the Rangers tied the series. Life is Good again.

My big work project involved a vendor show at our Regional Meeting in Foxwood's last week and it went well - my boss was pleased. While there I actually won about $200 in the Casino and got to see Skid Row in a free concert - a good time!

I have put all my heavy sweater WIP's away for the Spring and started on Melissa's Sapphire Wrap sweater (you can see it here ) in Elann's Peruvian Highland Silk color Mesa Teal. It really is a pretty pattern. I have about 5" of the back down. Hopefully I will actually finish this sweater - unlike that pile of WIP's I just hid from site.

I am taking a weeks Vacation starting May 12 - David and I are driving up to Montreal for a couple of day - anyone recommend a good LYS there?
