Boku has reached the 1/2 point!

My life has been quite busy of late, I have spent some time helping out a friend and Gummibaer has been away for a while. He is back now which makes me happy and I did get a bunch of knitting done in the last few weeks.

Here is an almost up to date picture of the Boku, almost half way! It has reached the 1/2 way point after this picture was taken.

I am really enjoying this knit. I think the finished object will get a lot of use.

I have been a little distracted now that Boku is half done.

Some lovely Noro jumped into my hands at the last Knitting studio sale. I think it wants to be a hat and mittens for me. I have tried some patterns but I don't think I have found the right one yet.

I am also suddenly in a hurry to finish my Birch lace shawl, the lovely green leafy-ness is just perfect for spring in VT!

Traveling Tea Box

When I arrived home on Saturday I found a box I had been eagerly awaiting, the Traveling Tea Box!
I am part of a tea group on Ravelry that has traveling tea boxes. One person starts the box by filling it with teas and other tea or knitting related things and sending it to the first person on the list. When you receive the box you open it and take out some goodies and add some things from your local area then you send it on to the next person on the list. It is great fun! You get to taste teas from all over the world.

This is what was in the box when I received it. There was tea from Germany, Turkey, Japan, England, and all over the U.S.!

I added some VT Tea, Maple sugar, VT Cookies and some of my other favorite teas.

Here is the box ready to be sent on it's way, heads up, Momonator!
