More Hawaii, and Yarnival

Originally uploaded by knitswithasilentk.
I realized in the previous entry I'd misspelled Kilauea (I went back and fixed it). Who knew it had so many syllables? And so many vowels. That's got to be a good Scrabble word...does Hawaiian count as American English?

This is the crater-within-a-crater that you drive around and then walk up to. It is full of and surrounded by steam eminating from cracks in the earth. It is awesome.

I was very satisfied with my knitting progress last night. I knit 4 rows on my lacy stole, finished my possom lace scarf (which will make its appearance after it is washed and blocked), and put some more inches on my Chevron Scarf. I also came to terms with the fact that I'll be ripping the Sweetie sweater (to begin again, to be sure) because it is 8 INCHES too big around. But hey, I have a very large swatch which I can accurately measure for gauge. I am also planning the overall shaping of the foot of my toe-up socks so that next time I have a plan for my misshapen, lumpy feet.

And in case you didn't hear already, the May 15 Yarnival! is up. I have several submissions (I'm the "Kim" it mentions) although none of them are my own blog entries. Go see!

Thanks for the yanrival link! I've tagged you Kim for a 7 random facts meme on my blog. This is what happens when you go away to a wonderful island for a week.

Kim, are proper nouns allowed in Scrabble.

I haven't made it through all of the links on the Yarnival yet. It is nice to read blogs I haven't seen before. Thanks for submitting items for us.
