2 weeks?!?!

I don't remember the last time I went two weeks without posting. Sigh.

I've been meaning to post about our vacation, but quite honestly dear readers, I've been more interested in doing other things since we got back and I didn't even bring my laptop with me while we were gone. I read some email on my phone and borrowed my mom's computer once to browse the internet, but that was it. And once we were home I spent so long reading everyone else's stuff that I didn't have the energy to respond to anything. Pathetic, I know.

Thankfully, R has posted a summary of our time off. I'll try to add more details from my perspective and I will definitely post about my yarn exploits on vacation, but I'm not there yet.

Part of the delay is that we are moving our photo galleries to flickr. So far I've just been posting and grouping pictures, and I plan to go back to add more captions and tags. But I'm using this opportunity to go back through our whole server of pictures and pick up things that I always meant to post and never did. I started about the time I started knitting and am moving ahead in time. Once I get to the present I'll go back in time to grab the pictures of my pre-2004 set designs. Not everything we're posting is public, so if you want to see it all you should become my contact. (I've linked to a few of you, but that's something I'll spend more time on when I get more pictures uploaded. Also, some of you may have me as a contact under my pre-ravelry userid which I forgot about when I created the one for ravelry. Oops)

My basic black cardigan and crocheted mitts are finished. Babette is going well. The fair isle sweater might need to be restarted (I seem to be avoiding that one at the moment) and I desparately need to take some photos of my projects in their current state.

I'm wearing my basic black cardigan at work today. I'm a little sad that the A/C is making me chilly despite the fact that I'm wearing a 50% wool cardigan, but I'm mostly happy with it. I have a little concern that the buttons I chose are too heavy, but I won't remove them unless/until I can find a suitable replacement.

1. I am so out of the loop. I had no idea you were on Ravelry. I am too, as dorrie6, though I have only knitted a few dishcloths so far. But all my buds are there.

2. Your vacation looked awesome.

3. I thought there was one more, but perhaps not! :D
