Poor Neglected Blog

I haven't been knitting.

I've been doing a ton of traveling (from Maine to Oregon to southern New Hampshire) and preparing for baby and I have some great pics, but nothing knitting related.

That elephant I was supposed to finish for my sister's shower and then birth and then baptism?
Never happened.
At this point I guess I'll be hoping to finish for Christmas, when the baby will be 6 months and might actually react to a stuffed animal, so that would be nice.

I'm going to Italy in a few days and I'm hoping to take some knitting for the plane, but I have so much to do for the next few days I don't even know if I'll have time to gather patterns/materials, and I'm not taking the Tilted Duster with me. Trying not to panic about all I need to get done in the next 24 hours!

On the non-panicked side, I turned this:Into this:
And then I found that the seeds of Queen Anne's Lace were used as a I won't even get to see if it tastes good. The flowers, which were used for the jelly, might be safe, but I couldn't find info that they definitely were.
But it's pretty anyways :)

Rest in Peace Dear Canon Powershot S50

For 5 long years you served me.

You took some pretty pictures.

You took some fun pictures.

You even took some knitting pictures.

Your service has been greatly appreciated, but you have become:

and bulky and
slightly broken...

I think it best if we put you to rest and let the Nikon Coolpix take it from here.

Yay for early birthday presents! :)
