Okay, Here’s Something

Hi there. I’m back. I’ve been back, and I’ve run the gamut from jet lagged, tired, cranky, unmotivated, and just plain lazy. It took awhile, but now I feel more like myself. Like a new self, even. The trip was fabulous, and I have a million photos to share, but (see above) I haven’t readied any of them for uploading yet. Eventually there will be a flickr gallery of it all. Probably.

I’m just so happy to be home.

Waiting for me at the Post Office was a package containing my fabulous Sockapalooza socks, from my very cool pal, Yan Tan Tethera. Everybody take a moment to go say hullo. Okay. Now socks.

Aren’t they pretty? They fit me perfectly, I’ll get a photo eventually.
She designed them for me too, how very cool is that? I love that she used a variegated yarn for the the CC.

The whole first week I was back I kind of only did the bare minimum of things I had to do. Jet Lag kicked my ass, and I slept a lot. I also knit like crazy. It felt good to be home and not obligate myself to work here, to just take the time I needed and get my head back on. It took an Ice Road Tuckers marathon, and a whole Sunday on the couch with my knitting to finally motivate me.

I’ve already finished this pair, but here’s a sock in progress with cat for you anywho.

I promise not to abandon the blog for so very long ever again. *Smooch.*

PS- I’ve updated the shop today too!

    Hi Julia,
    Just wanted to let you know another Michigander loves your sock yarn! I’ve been watching the store for some “Muddy Waters” so I was very excited when at 4:30 p.m. there they all were. I had to wait for my husband who was lurking nearby to go to soccer with the kids @ 5:30. I quickly grabbed my debit card and SH*T it was all frickin’ gone! Too bad for me GREAT 4 U!! I will keep checking from time 2 time ….I still have the other 3 skeins from you that I should use 🙂 Thanks for a great product and quick shipments…Kelly
