Back Home

Wow -- it's been a little crazy around here lately! Due to a family emergency, Neill and I flew back to North Carolina on one day's notice and were there all last week, after which I flew to San Diego for the weekend to attend a church conference with my mom and sister-in-law. And because I have limited vacation, I was trying to squeeze work in there AND keep up with an online accounting class. Phew! Needless to say, I'm glad to finally be back home.

The cool thing about flying and layovers? Lots of free knitting time. I seem to have squeezed out almost an entire Snow White in about a week and a half:

It looks hilariously long and skinny right now, but some test stretching assures me that it will be regular human sized when worn on the body.

I have so many finished projects to blog about right now, but no pictures of any of them! In the past couple of months I have made:

1. A skirt
2. A dress
3. A Clapotis
4. A Spencer-ish top-down raglan sweater

And having them stuck in the purgatory of finished but not photographed is driving me nuts. Unfortunately, I don't know when I'll actually get around to it -- while dealing with the multiple happenings of last week, I also happened to find out that I am being sent to Germany to support some meetings for work....this Saturday. Of course I'm ecstatic about visiting a place I've never been (for free!), but it would be nice to have a bit of a breather first. (Note to self: Quit complaining.)

And because I have no baby of my own (yet), I feel that I must show off the babies of my friends and family at every opportunity. This is my first-cousin-once-removed-in-law, one of the most well-behaved and adorable children in the coterminous United States. I asked if I could bring him home with me, but unfortunately his parents said no. :)

Germany! How awesome - what a great opportunity. Hope the emergency resolved okay. It's tough when everything hits all at once. Snow White looks amazing - I'm looking forward to seeing all of your new knits!

I'm looking forward to seeing those purgatory-floating knits! Your stuff is always great.
Hope all is well, and you're able to enjoy the trip. Germany - that's right near the top of my list of must-see places :)

Have fun!

Your Snow White is looking great so far, can't wait to see it. And I can't believe you have that many FOs and no photos... waiting with baited breath, here! Can't wait to see them.
