Well, it hasn't really been such a grueling week, I'm just sick of being sick -- this summer cold is hanging on for dear life and making me crazy!

But a knitting cruise is always good therapy -- we had seven people join us on Wednesday! We headed out to Albert Head but there was about a 4-5 ft swell, so we changed direction and ended up anchoring in the nook behind the Fisgard Lighthouse -- it was calm, and hot, and lovely.

Then the wind came up so we headed back in to the harbour, but we were having fun and it was too early to come home, so we docked in front of the Empress for a bit... that was lovely, too!

That pair of black socks is nearly off the needles, but more importantly I've finished several pattern repeats on the lavender heather shawl (about a foot) and now you can see it:

That's the main pattern down the centre back, and this is the pattern that repeats on each arm...

I'm loving it! Today is Knit'n'Cafe so I'll probably have the socks ready to graft by the end of the day.

I keep forgetting to mention that my blogiversary contest garnered precisely three entries, so .... I'm going to see that each of those folks gets a 'consolation prize' of some kind.I know from my stats that I have a lot more than three readers, so I don't know what happened, but I appreciate those of you who took the time to enter, and you'll be hearing from me!
