We are back home, buried in piles of laundry and messiness, but it does feel good to sleep in my own bed again. The kids caught some kind of sore throat thing toward the end of the week, and I think even they were ready to be home once more.
I've got a zillion things to catch up on, but one thing I did actually make some progress on was a sweater that's been accepted for KnitScene. I'm very excited about it, because this is a design I've been playing around with for a while and I think it's going to be a fun, fairly quick knit -- and one that newbie knitters will enjoy because it produces a professional-looking result yet is easy to knit.
I've got lots and lots of dyeing to do, too, and I've got some roving soaking so I can do a spinner's update later this week.
So for now, I will leave you with the last batch of vacation photos:
Goat (for Mindy) from the Cape May Zoo.
Some kind of cavy (relative of the guinea pig), maybe a mara?
Cleome from the zoo.
Little Miss poses.
N. waits for lunch.
The now-traditional kite-flying.
Father -n- son.
Ravelry on the beach.
