Serendipitous Knitting and Scenery

This past vacation to Seattle I spent an insane amount of time hanging out with the dogs, and the kids, in scenic areas. The first day, I forgot my knitting bag in the hotel room, so I made a quick stop at a LYS in which I purchased 2 skeins of Noro Silk Garden, and a size 8 circ Addi needle. A longer perusal of Ravelry on my Droid (I love smartphones!), I found a pattern that looked intriguingly hard, but used all the skills I'd been working on, and making great strides in. This has been a challenge. It took me an insanely long time to memorize the pattern, but all through the trip I slogged away.

I've been meaning to photograph it, but it's been living in the car while I work on a considerably larger project in the house. Finally today, I just slung it over the steering wheel and took a picture. I still have a little ways to go, but I love it!

I am assuming like all lace patterns when I block it, it'll open.
I'm just so pleased that I'm purling and doing a moderately complex
(ok, minorly complex - hush) pattern.

In another serendipitous event, the other night I was driving home
took a different route, and passed this lake at just this perfect moment.
