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:
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”!

I love how you managed to squeeze a different hand-knit item into each of those pictures. Very well done. :) It all looks beautiful!
Those are great pictures! (I note the plethora of handknits.) We may have to try hiking there when we go next month — it looks amazing :)
gorgeous photos! NM looks beautiful. i’m glad you had such a great time!
Looks like you had a nice, refreshing, relaxing time!!!! Welcome back!
Such beautiful pictures! Even though I was really little when I lived NM I think I miss the southwest.
A tour of New Mexico in handknits! Wonderful!
The “mark all as read” is a lifesaver sometimes :-)
Looks like an amazing vacation – your photos are spectacular!
