flutter scarf, stripes!

a most wonderful trip, in photos.

We flew to New Mexico on Saturday, to visit my grandparents:

I got to hang out with cactus in cool, sunny weather:

We hiked at Tent Rocks, which is one of my favorite places in all the world:

Being at Tent Rocks is like being on another planet. It’s amazing:

We also went to the top of the mountains, to Sandia Crest (10,678 feet):

There had just been a snowstorm the day before, and it was amazingly beautiful up there:

We had a wonderful time with my grandparents, and with my aunts and uncles and cousin who also happened to be in town. We saw great museums, watched fun movies, cooked delicious meals, and just relaxed together. It was fantastic.

But we had to fly back home yesterday:

I mentioned in my last post that I would be bringing a more portable knitting project, since Stripes! was getting rather unwieldy to bring on a plane. So, for all of you who were wondering, here is the mystery portable project:

half a scarf

One half of a Flutter Scarf for my mom; the yarn is the leftovers from my Icarus shawl, and the pattern turned out to be absolutely perfect for plane knitting.

We got back very, very late last night. So I am extremely tired now, between that, and experiencing DST and a 2-hour time difference all in the same trip. But at least I have Stripes! to console me:

And now I have 1000+ things in my Google Reader to catch up on, so if I’ve missed something terribly important, please let me know…I may have to do the dreaded “mark all as read”!
