Back Again

I know, I've been very lax again, but I do think I have been a little crazy with trips and family things. For those of you who know me well, I will just note that my grandmother, who I grew up living next to and to whom I was almost her youngest child, died in mid-February. While not totally surprising (she was 96 and in a care facility), it was rather sudden. This happend in the middle of a 3.5 week trip to Houston, Maine, and Japan. I was in Houston when I got the call, missed Spa in Maine, and joined DH in Japan for 5 days between the death arrangements and the memorial service. It was a lovely memorial service, and after the weekend that it took place, I pulled a few things together and flew to northern England to attend the Skip North Knitting (and shopping) Getaway. After the week in the UK (side trip to Colinette in Wales), I'm back home for 2 days now.


I have photos and stories from both of the big trips, and will be posting them soon, but I did just want to check in and say that I'm well and knitting - more about that to come. I also did some stash acquisition on both trips, as well as some wheel de-acquisition and acquisition - now there's a teaser, right?

So check back in a day or two, and there'll be posts.
