For Memorial Day weekend, me and Dennis went back to Chincoteague... an island off the coast of Virginia. (Some knitters might recall it as a pattern featured in Interweave Knits, Weekend 2010... but I digress) Actually, it's known for it's National Seashore, where wild ponies are free to roam!

I'm at the point where I've reached the 'black hole' of the shawl... endless miles of garter stitch. But I'm still enjoying it. Almost done with the 3-color stripe section... a few more rows and I can move on to the edging!

Anyway- I also took the opportunity to photograph my Harmony on the Rocks Shawl... here, you can see what the color really looks like!
Overall, it was a great get-away. I'm kind of considering this our first anniversary vacation-- even though June 5th is the actual date. I seriously can't believe it's already been a yearn since me and Dennis were married! I've heard time flies with this stuff and it's so true! Since then, so much exciting stuff has happened:
- Our nephew, Ezra
- New apartment
- Our cat, Bella
- New jobs
- New computer (Thanks to knocking glass of wine all over my old one's keyboard!)
