I keep knitting and knitting and knitting, and while that IS the point of knitting, I would think I should have made more progress than just these 18 inches.
So I will keep knitting and knitting and.........................................some day I will have a Summit Shawl.
I hope I will like it by then.

Egg noodles on the side will soak up the delicious gravy.
1/3 cup olive oil
1 2 ½ to 3 pound bottom round pot roast
2 large onions, quartered
2 celery stalks, thinly sliced (2 cups)
2 large carrots, thinly sliced (2 cups)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 6-ounce can tomato paste
1 cup dry red wine
1 ½-ounce package dried mushrooms (such as Portobello)
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 28-ounce can whole plum tomatoes, chopped, liquid reserved
Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat and brown the roast on all sides. Transfer the roast to a 4-to 6-quart slow cooker. To the fat remaining in the skillet, add the onions, celery, carrots, and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until tender, about 10 minutes. Add the tomato paste and stir to coat the vegetables; transfer to the cooker. Pour the wine into the skillet and scrape up any browned bits; add the contents of the skillet to the cooker, along with the mushrooms, salt, oregano, and tomatoes (plus 2 cups of their liquid). Cook 8 hours on low heat, or 4 hours on high heat.

I'm still working on the Summit Shawl and the Juneberry Triangle, but I've gotten bored by the first and still a bit intimidated by the second. Someone (perhaps the shop owner?) had left this new Rowan book out on the table we knitters gather around, and I fell in love. There are 20 projects in the book and I love, oh, ALL of them! That's a lot of knitting, so I will have to narrow down my ambition a little...a lot.
