Winna, Winna, Chicken Dinna

Folks, the random number generator has given us a winner! Congratulations to Amy, aka knitterofhats on ravelry. Amy, I'll PM you on rav and as soon as I get your address, your copy of Sweater Quest will be winging its way to you. Many thanks to everyone who entered the contest!

I'm especially happy to be able to spread a little cheer today as this is my last day of the spring semester. As of tomorrow, I'm free, free, free...for the next 6 weeks, that is. Still, a half-summer vacation is better than no summer vacation at all, and by the time I have to get back into the classroom at the end of June, the sweltering heat will be just about ready to kick in and I'll be grateful to be out of the house and into the air-conditioned coolness of the office. Till then, I'll be home with the kids, playing in the garden, pulling weeds and generally enjoying myself. Aaaaaah, good times, they are a-comin'.

Hopefully, I'll be able to squeeze some knitting in along with all of that. Most of my knitting time comes during my looooooong commute. With a month and a half off, I'll have to try and figure out when to knit here at home. I still have my Multnomah to finish, and after the problems I've had with the feather and fan border, I don't want to put it down for too long because I might not want to pick it up again.

I think I've worked the kinks, or at least most of them, out of the project, so once I'm finished posting I'm going to sit down and try to get a few rows into the pattern. I still love how the knit 1 below patterning looks on the main body of the shawl; I can't wait to see how the feather and fan will look paired with that.

Will post photos once I'm a bit farther along....
