Falling by the wayside...

I have been remiss in my posting. Mostly because I've only been working on one thing since the last FO. And progress hasn't been that fast--remember, I don't get much knitting time now that The Boy doesn't go to bed until 9! Anyway, I'm working on this:



It's the Shetland Triangle pattern by Evelyn A. Clark, from either Scarf Style or Wrap Style, I can't remember which. I'm using lace weight and smaller needles than called for (the pattern is written for fingering weight). Anyway, I'm on my 13th lace repeat. I think I've actually managed to memorize the pattern as well, it's not difficult. I like it. I think others like it too:



I'm using my knitpicks yarn (this one in Oregon coast). It's nice. I haven't quite finished the first skein yet, so I think this shawl may end up being bigger than the pattern calls for as well, since I'm planning on using most of the second skein as well.

Well, that's it for now. No really exciting news or anything. I did finally meet Cody yesterday, and he's just lovely! Cameron was taking part in an evaluation session yesterday for more Reading Therapy dogs ("The library needs a few good dogs..."), I must ask Mrs. Yes how that went!

I adore that pattern. It's gorgeous in the Oregon coast.

Cody looks like such a sweet boy - now, if Sophie wasn't such an a**clown I would love to get her therapy certification...however, she is sweet, but insane.

Moe, Cody is 8 now. Don's been working with him since he was 2. Give Sophie some time, I'm sure she'll mellow! Two of the dogs being evaluated yesterday were goldens, and if they passed, they'll be working with kids at the Annapolis Valley Regional Library.

The evaluation went really well, the kids had a great time.
I can't believe I missed this post, I check them all the time...
