I'm back!

Here's a list of things to talk about sometime. Maybe now. Maybe soon. Who knows.

1. Trip to Alaska.
We just got back on Saturday from a 7 day cruise from Whittier to Vancouver. We stopped in Skagway, Juneau, and Ketchican. We met up with my mom, dad, aunt, uncle and grandpa. It was gorgeous. The weather was fantastic, the mosquitoes weren't out yet, and the bears weren't quite yet either (we did see one though). LaLa had some bumping and bruising trouble on the boat, but otherwise it was a fantastic trip. I have some photos here.

2. Souvenier yarn.
At the Juneau stop we found a yarn shop. Skeins Fine Yarns (Can't find a web site for them, only this ad.) I picked up some Trekking (color 40, it's reminiscient of Neapolitan ice cream or those Brachs nougat candies), and some Sockotta cotton/wool/nylon blend sock yarn. Also a skein of merino hand-painted in Anchorage.

3. Cruise Knitting. (Hat for LaLa, mittens for LaLa, Hat for the blue baby, starting a baby sweater for an expecting friend. Gauge issues. Photos still on CD)

4. Birthday yarn. (3 pair of socks worth of Lorna's Laces from my little sister. Gorgeous. But no photos yet.)

Back to work and real life tomorrow. Sadly, LaLa doesn't want to go to sleep tonight.
