Really, I'm still alive

I transferred to a different job in June, therefore I haven't had time to post.  Many projects have been knit.  Elections have been worked on.  My latest finished project is Madli's shawl from Knitted Lace of Estonia:

It's made from Suri alpaca lace yarn.  So silky and soft!

I am currently working on a pair of black lace socks:

These are the Embossed leaves socks from the Favorite socks book.  I'm using Dream in Color Smooshy in the Black parade colorway.  I am working on the heel flap for sock #2, so they should be done soon.  Goody.  I am wearing out some of my handknit socks and need to get knitting more!  My next project will also be a pair of socks and also a stealth project for a gift.

Here's what greeted me on the way to my car this morning:

Sorry it's blurry.  I was laughing.  Our vegetable garden is next to the pussy willow bush in our backyard.  the birds had a nest in there that you can now see with the leaves all gone.  Some industrious squirrel carried a tomato left in the garden up to the nest, and is storing it there I guess.  What will the wildlife in my yard do next?
