I've been away for a bit but I promise, it was for a good reason.
I was visiting her
Yea for a visit with my BFF!!!!
We did a whole bunch of stuff including visiting the Memphis Zoo, walking on Beale Street (which, I am sad to say, was rather a disappointment), trolley riding through downtown Memphis, and watching the Olympics Opening Ceremony. I am happy to report that a wonderful time was had by all.
Well...not by her
My girl is such a homebody. I can't say that I blame her.
We've been home for a few days and I thought I should probably let you all know I am still alive. Even better, today, for the first time in probably a year, I can contribute to Ginny's Yarn Along!
Look, look, look at what I have done!

A scarf version of The Camping Shawl (on Ravelry)
and, on the needles, the Helix Scarf:
I did read two books while I was gone. Sadly, I am too lazy to get up from the couch, get my Kindle, and take a picture of them. One was a knitting mystery (along the same line as the crochet mysteries I read last summer) and the other was the same type only it was set in a cupcake shop. They were cheesy, but they were good.
I will do my best to be back tomorrow. I only have a few short weeks of vacation left and I want to enjoy every second of them!
