I'm back...

Well, I am back from Chicago. You can see me on the left side of Michael (just behind his shoulder). I managed to get his autograph (yeah).

I was supposed to be home yesterday, but got home early this morning due to a flight cancellation, but fun was had by all.

I can safely say "there's no place like home" at this point in time.

The up side (besides seing Michael Crawford in concert) was that I got several rows done on my shetland tea shawl while in the hotel room yesterday.

I fell pray to startitis again this week. This time it is a lace shawl. I enjoy knitting lace in the summer since I don't run the air and heavy sweaters are just too hot to work with.
This is the Shetland Tea Shawl from Gathering of Lace. It currently has 290 stitches in a round, but will get to 574 stitches before I am done, then I get to knit on the border taking off one stitch for every 2 rows of border pattern. Eeek... maybe the men with the funny white coats will need to come and get me before I am finished.

Ok, so I really wanted to work on my Starmore Grant Avenue vest, but unfortunately, Eric had a different idea. He seems to think this is his bed. Guess I'll have to work on my Sally's favorite sweater, which are the rose colored balls next to him.

Here it is

Attached is the finished picture of my shawl. This is my first attemp at taking a picture with my new camera, so it isn't very good, but you get the idea of it.
