So look:

Texas Pasture

Hamburger and Steak have moved on. Not to the butcher, to a new pasture across town. Spud came to pick them up and return them to the herd. What a relief.

You might be wondering what happened to my Knitting Olympics. Here you go:

Back of Voyage

That's the back. There's nothing else to see. Sad really. I have sorely miscalculated my time allotment for knitting over the olympics. I'm a participant, but there will be no medal here. I expect that the back should be finished within a day or two, which will be nice.

That's not to say that I haven't enjoyed the challenge. Here's what I've learned. I love charts. I've worked with charts in the past but not really figured out how they can enable easier knitting. For whatever reason I now get it. I can put the chart on my lap and see the knitting. This is actually a big deal for me and opens up additional knitting possibilities. The other really neat thing for me is how much I am enjoying knitting a pattern at a smaller gauge. Voyage is going to take a good amount of time to finish and usually that makes me a little impatient. Not so with this one. All good fun.
