Greetings and Dear Laura:
Welcome back from vacation! It sounds like you had a great time. I think the sunrise expedition was a excellent choice. And Ibenholt is really coming along! It looks great - and if our mild summer is any indication, it really won't be that long before you'll be ready to wear it.
I just have a short post today - mostly I want to link to a fellow knit-blogger who is walking in the Breast Cancer 3-Day. **Whoops, forgot the link!!** She's walking in memory of her mother - and sponsoring a great contest to help raise her goal. Be sure to stop by and see what's available, and join in if you are of a mind to. (You know, I don't even remember how I stumbled onto her blog, but I've been reading for a while. Isn't it funny how you read someone's blog and start to feel like you know them - yet they have no idea you even exist! I know, I'm a bad commenter....)
While I'm not up for walking 60 miles, I'm happy for the opportunity to support my two Aunts - Betty & Charlene, and two Cousins - Connie and Lita who are all battling breast cancer. Thanks Mel!
