Well, my husband and I just celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. 40!?!?!?! Not quite sure how that happened. Anyway, we spent a week in Vegas, did a lot of walking, and saw a lot of really great shows. And now it is 5 weeks till Christmas! I've done a fair amount of knitting, both machine and hand. With hand-knitting I'm still on my lace kick. As for the machine, socks are on there now, as they are real quick Christmas gifts. I did knit a shawl for my daughter's birthday at the end of October. It is a take-off on the Summit Shawl. Not the best picture, but here it is.
