Lemme, Lemme Update You

When we last saw our heroine:

I have since returned from my trip (for those playing along, I was in the midwestern USA for several family reunions, not in London for my triumphant Olympic debut) and there's been some progress...

1) Pathways Blanket [Rav] by Frankie Brown
I was only able to work on the seaming on the bottom half of the blanket during the first travel day, soooooooooooooooooooooo
I didn't get this finished in time to leave it there as intended. 
-sigh-  Sad panda.
It's going to be really great, you guys, I swear.

2) some sort of baby blanket square without enough yarn in stash
I was able to order yarn from WEBS and have it shipped to the location of my secret vacation lair!  I was able to choose a pattern and complete the required craftiness!  I was able to PULL THIS ONE OUT!
OPHELIA baby footprint dishcloth [Rav link] by Bridget McKenzie; knit with 2/3rds skein of Cascade Pima Tencel in colorway 1693 Sky Blue
...does it look like something?  It's something.

3) Baby V-Neck Vest [Rav] by Katy Moore
This got done -- with three hours to spare -- but I lacked the smarts to get a FO shot of baby vest greatness, so this is what you get:
Baby V-Neck Vest [Rav link] by Katy Moore; knit with 1.5 skeins of Knit Picks Comfy Worsted in colorways 6406 October and 2138 Pomegranate
Hugs to the baby's mama!

4) Panda Silk DK Fan Shawl [Rav] by Gail Tanquary
Ravellenic Games Progress!
There is beading and purple and I love this pattern EXCEPT
it is modular, which I'm a little tired of right now.
But that's the fault of Blanket Slog, not this shawl, so more please.

5) All Twisted Up Yoga Socks [Rav] by Bonnie Pruitt
I knit on this while under the watchful eye of the baby vest's recipient's mother... bait and switch.  :)
super pretty stitch marker made by Stitched Together -- thank you so much!

Oh, yes -- and there was yarn!!  More on that later.

AND before I forget:

So many projects!!! I like each and every one of them too (although the blanket is still my all time favorite). How did you manage to seam the blanket so perfectly, it's flawless! Wonderful work as always!
