Still Hanging Around

You might expect me to say I'm plodding or plugging along (still) on my Hanging Vines stole.  But it doesn't feel that way.  Each and every stitch is still a joy. If I could sit and knit for hours, this would be my choice. There is no denying the beauty of  the yarn or how much I enjoy knitting the pattern.  Five balls complete and the enjoyment of knitting has not diminished.  Three more balls to go before she is on the blocking board.  My only question about continuing (to post),  would be if it becomes boring  to you, dear reader.  But, I do feel it is still blog worthy.
You can see the pattern well in this picture.

Motivation also continues for the shawl, as I wrap this beautiful yarn around the needles and watch it create an amazing pattern. 

Here she is again hanging out at Silver Lake last Sunday.

Knitting time has lessened because of 'moi dejunque-ing'. An update will come on Friday, as there should be something to show by then. Motivation continues and progress is made, albeit slowly.

Now for some Blogland updates. 

Nathania has set a date! Congratulations, grrlfriend. 
Carole is having a contest, ala moi...comment and win yarn (still more to be given away here, too). 
Shelby has one more week! Well, now only 6 days, but then we know new babies have a mind of their own.  We're waiting for you Appleseed!
Annie has received a 158 squares for John's memorial afghans.  Grrlfriend, are you going to put them together all by yourself!?
Donna wants you to find something beautiful within a mile of your home and post it to your blog. What a great idea!!  Here's my picture:

It may not look like much but, then again, it might send you screaming. It is a beautiful wasp hive.  It looks like pale gray papermache and is constructed in swirls,  which form a spiral pattern.  It hangs from the  deck above my front door, but not one wasp has bothered us.  I'm sure management will remove it shortly.  Nature is beautiful and I wish they had picked the nearby tree to nest in, instead of my stoop.

Beautiful knitting - I am beginning to turn green with envy...I will not covet...

Isn't that nest something. Naturally, it would look like a ball of yarn on your stoop!

Although I absolutely love knitting shawl, that is th eone thing I dislike the amount of time they can so easily consume. I think that's probably why my two on the needles have lapsed into being official UFO's.

eww! i'm ridiculously terrified of wasps.... no reason... never been stung - they just creep me out *shiver*

I like the photos of Hanging Vines. It's motivating me to want to do something with the pattern in my stash.

Hanging vines looks lucious. That's what I need - a ball of yarn that stings so I will quit buying more. :0)

How could anything so lovely be boring?? NEVER!!

The wasp nest has charm and beauty in it's way but I am so afraid of wasps/bees/yellow jackets/all manner of stinging, flying things I would have to move, pronto!!

Your stole is so gorgeous. I absolutely love the way the colors are showing off the pattern.

That nest is very cool. When we get them here, they're ugly. And the bees are mean too.

The nest is very interesting, but we have bees in our mailbox we're trying to get rid of, so I'm not that into bees right now, I like the idea though :) and your stole is beyond stunning and I love the color...take care.

Wow! the shawl is stunning! Love the color. Love the pattern.

I do not thing she is boring, darling. She is beautiful! And so is the wasp nest/ball of yarn.

Hanging vines is looking beautiful. How much yarn is it due to take?

Thanks for sharing Donna's challenge. I posted some pictures today.
