Click... click...

click... click....

That's the sound of my needles making slow but steady process on picovoli.

She's a little bit bigger now... a little bit.

I've actually been suprised that I'm finding this to be a very pleasant knit. The last time I used cotton, I found it to be a bit squeeky; not all that joyous to knit. That little bit of silk mixed with this cotton makes this a very soft and easy fiber to knit.

I won't be done any time soon, but I can easily see myself staying with this project and having my first completed garment.

On the local flora and fauna front, I thought I'd share a picture of one of our regular backyard visitors.

Just to the right of the tree there... squint hard through the dark... could it be, yes, it's our neighborhood opossum. He was taking a stroll through the yard last night.

I generally find possums to be unattractive little creatures, but I have to admit this little guy was kind of cute... if you can get past the beady eyes and the rodent like tail.
