|Stuffed local sand dab with Dungeness crab|
|Pork Chop with Beans|

I lied to you and myself, and the variegated yarn I had picked out for Wendy's Summer Mystery Shawl KAL is too busy, so I will save it for Multnomah instead. It's looking like my KAL is becoming more of a KCU (Knit Catch Up) but that's okay. I get to benefit from all those KALers project notes :) I don't know what I'm going to use for the Mystery Shawl, but I intend to shop from within the stash.
