Is May really almost over Wednesday?

Up the Mountain
On Sunday morning we took an ATV ride up New Canyon. It was a beautiful day to do a ride! I skillfully missed the snow just to the left of the above scene. We had to turn around just after this spot because the snow was too deep on the road. This spot is maybe 10 miles away from my house!

Still working on the Anniversary Shawl
I am still on Clue #3 of the Anniversary Shawl. Every other row increases by 8 stitches and so it takes longer and longer as you go along. I love the way the colors play in the yarn.  I am now reading the story of how The Pioneer Woman  met and married her Marlboro Man. It is a fun read, she has a fun sense of humor.

Possible choices for Tour de Sock
This is the second year that I am participating in Tour de Sock. It is a fun sock knitting race that is a fund raiser for charity. It starts on June 1st, so there is still time to sign up if you are interested. Even if you don't want to race, you get 6 patterns for $7.50 which is a donation to a charity.

This is my WIP Wednesday, KCCO and Yarn Along post for this week.

WIP Wednesday

Anniversary Shawl
I have been working on this shawl for a couple of weeks. It was a mystery and the last clue came out on Saturday. I am a bit behind, just started clue #3 last night.

I have been reading some murder mysteries lately. This series is fun, involves a parrot in a gift shop.

Problem child
This shawl is going to be lovely! But I made a mistake and I think I might have to just start over, it might be faster than tinking back 6 rows of lace. I will decide after I complete the other shawl.
