Made it home on Sunday afternoon and I'm still tired...though finally starting to feel a bit more normal today. Thankfully not too much work piled up while I was gone which helps a lot (thanks co-workers!).

Vacation was awesome. I have a bunch of pictures that I'm working on organizing and uploading so hopefully I can post a few of them and put the rest in Flikr for those who are interested.

Not much knitting was done. Here's a picture of what all that was accomplished over the last two weeks:

This is the cuff and first couple inches of the shell pattern sock from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush (I think?). This was done only on the plane ride home and then the drive up to Maine. Really cool pattern so far. It was funny when I finally starting knitting and I got the beginnings of a blister on my finger! So I guess I was out of knitting shape.

Not much else to write at the moment. Between catching up at work and trying to clean up the house (which was left in a disastrous state), I'm not quite back in the swing of things. The gloomy weather here isn't helping much either!

Glad you're back, I hope you had a lovely time! I'm sending you lots of sunshine from Poland (it's a very hot and sunny day today), and looking forward to that socks - the beginning looks rather intriguing! ^^

Yay, you're back! Hope you had an amazing time in Europe. It must have been so good to see your sister! I can't wait to see some pictures. Good thing you got the new camera! The socks are looking awesome. I've got that pattern on my list of socks to make. Glad you're enjoying it so far. I love "Knitting Vintage Socks." Such a great book.
