Ballband wants to be done already. It’s almost done, but I have too many projects to do, and too little time!
Twist and Lace scarf is coming along, despite a rough start that involved frogging it twice due to some confusion with the pattern on my part. I am enjoying Twist and Lace as an alternative to the slow pace of the Bird’s Eye shawl:

Husband returned home from a brief trip (without me, again) to Las Vegas for a conference yesterday bearing gifts: I have become a fan of Acca Kappa’s lip balm and I’ve only found it in the Acca Kappa store in the Grand Canal Shoppes in The Venetian in Las Vegas.
And, of course, the soaps and shampoos from Gilchrist & Soames for Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino, are nice extras to have.
