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 BrownI was only able to work on the seaming on the bottom half of the blanket during the first travel day, soooooooooooooooooooooo
-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!

3) Baby V-Neck Vest [Rav] by Katy MooreThis 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:

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.
|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:
HAPPY ANNIVERSARY, M&D!!
and HAPPY BDAY, T!!
