While hanging out in the hotel in Portland, I cast on and worked some monkeys all the way to the heel. I'm putting these aside now, they're going to be my traveling socks while I'm doing training. Socks make a great traveling project because they're small and they pack easily.
Today, I'll probably work on the dog paw shawl some, and maybe my yoga hoodie, which is knit all the way to the design now. I'm really hoping it fits, as it seems a bit small. Just can't seem to win with that size thing........
I also discovered a couple of places to explore next time I'm in portland. Powell's books and a seemingly fascinating yarn store called knit/purl.
More to come on that.

Booboo was very disapointed that sister was getting all the attention. He wanted his picture taken too. He just didn't see any reason to get out of bed for it.
In knitting news, the acorn lace socks are done, pics to follow. I've now cast on for the olive branch yoga hoodie, and I'm working on the first sleeve. This one has a lot of "mindless" knitting.
I'm still working on the dog paw scarf. Just the opposite, a lot of thinking knitting. I'm trying to get a row or two a day, but I have to do it when I can really concentrate or else I just end up taking it out.

I have to finish a couple of things first, though. They're the ones up there. Doggie paw scarf and the acorn lace socks that Cinnamon approves of.
