Sorry for the long radio silence – it was just kind of a nutty week. Nothing bad going on, just busy with various errands and chores in the evenings. We did also do a fun thing this week – we went to the AK State Fair! I didn’t do well with getting pictures of most of it. A lot of the things are the same from year to year, so I didn’t bother with much. Except for this craft project that won a ribbon in the modeling category:

Yup – that is a UFO crash site

This attraction:

Yup – that is a giant animatronic mantis

Also I ate some cheese curds.

In other news, I did get some knitting done! The Arrowhead cardigan (Ravelry link) yarn colors do work pretty well, so that is a relief.

It is a medium contrast rather than high contrast, but you can see the pattern and I like the way they look together. The Lustrous shawl (Ravelry link) is also moving along. I think I am about halfway with that, so I may focus on it a bit to get it done.

The reversible cable technique is working out pretty well!

    1. Thank you! I am really happy with both projects too πŸ™‚ No huge vegetables – they weren’t out yet when we got there. I’m sad to miss it, but there will be pictures in the paper, so I can live with it πŸ™‚ Do you guys go to your state fair?


  1. Zorak can you help me! Can you believe there isn’t a praying mantis emoji? Who do we petition to have our favorite creatures made into emojis? Your cardigan is looking great. You are really making progress!

    1. LOL! Amazing how many mantises show up when you are looking for them πŸ™‚ We should definitely look into who we request new emojis from! Thank you – I’m trying to get a bit done as there may be a new project starting next week. Trying to talk myself down – we’ll see how that goes.
