We had a lovely time in New England. Of course, I didn’t get as much knitting done as I wanted (does one ever?). But I did meet up with many many fabulous knit bloggers! I enjoyed every second I spent with everyone very much, but the look on the toddlers’ faces when the lovely Diana and I were finished shopping takes the cake:

(“Dude. Do you think they’re going to make us go to any more yarn stores?” “Dude, I hope not.”)

Obviously, there was some stash enhancement going on.

There was some knitting too, although I have nary a single FO to show you. This is mostly due to a major lace screw-up, the resulting 5-day knitting hiatus, and the two-day “open heart surgery” on my lace shawl to fix the problems. On the bright side, I now feel like an absolute queen. Seriously, I dropped down stitches and re-knit true knitted lace in five separate parts of the shawl, and the errors are totally gone.

(That’ll teach me not to knit lace at a stitch & bitch again…)

So, what have you all been up to?

  1. Hey girlie! I was just wondering where you’d gotten yourself off to. That is a very yummy yarn haul, and Jacob and LL look perfectly exasperated with their camera-wielding, yarn-shopping mamas 🙂

  2. Welcome back! Looks like you had lots of fun. Well done on the lace surgery. It strikes fear into the depths of my heart, so I totally admire you for getting through it!

  3. Lace to a SnB? You are a brave woman!! Your trip sounds fab – little LL must have enjoyed the visit! Welcome back!

  4. Welcome back! You were missed.

  5. Hey, is that some Nashua ecologie cotton I spy? And where’s that gorgeous red yarn?

    We had a great time meeting up with you guys. Oh, and I still have a yellow digger truck in my purse that I need to send you!

  6. Welcome back! Looks like you had a great time!!

  7. Welcome back ! Oh, the toddlers looks so sweet, driving together 🙂 And knitting lace – no, thank you 🙂
