Back from holiday and very tired. What is it about some people, who like to drive? Husband got it in his head to take the whole trip from Colorado to Houston in one 18 hour marathon. Couldn't stop him. So 3:00 a.m. we're home. I dragged myself up at 8:00 just to re-acclimate to a regular time schedule, but I'm dragging now, and will probably ruin my good intentions with a little nap.

In the mean time, the results of holiday driving and knitting.

My Poetry sweater is done, and here she is relaxing after a wash. She had a bit of an accident, as I spilled a cup of coffee on her, while doing the finishing. A soak in soapy water left her clean, thank you. I have a cable sweater that seems to attract coffee every time I wear it. It has also cleaned up, so I didn't panic too much over the ordeal.

I feel like a bit of a dork, as we skied so hard most days, all I wanted to do was drink beer and stare off in space in the evenings. Thus, this girl was finished Thursday night, but did not have to opportunity to bathe, or be worn on the trip. Now, in Houston, it's summer weather, and the poor girl will have to go into a box in the closet until next November.

I started a hat to match my Ingeborg sweater. That had been on my list for a while. It seemed less taxing than working on the design for BIL/SIL sweaters , or finishing Poetry.

And I'm almost finished with my elann contest shawl. I'll not show her until after March 31.
