Back and getting back to normal

After being away for President's Week, the past week has all been about trying to catch up with pretty much everything. Tons, and I really mean "tons", of stuff awaited for me when I got back. This is the state of my desk:


Each and every piece of paper needs to be dealt with, and the volume is actually way down (I wish I could say the same for my inbox.) And we won't even talk about what's up there:


After all, if it is up there, it is not important. But let's start from two weeks ago, when we went here for a week:

And as I thought, not much to do and heavy use of the iPod, so I finished the Globe Trotter Mahogany Socks:

I did not work on the Zephyr Shawl as much as I wanted to, because I got a nasty cold, I even lost my voice for a couple of days (my husband thought was an improvement not a problem), and I was completely out of it on our flight back (found out that I can sleep on the plane if the kids are on the other side of the isle and I am drugged.)

I was knitting this for Hollis as a Stitches sample, as as you can see, I did not finish it, but I work on it all day while I was at Stitches, and it got several people to buy this gorgeous yarn ($11 for a ball and you get a shawl out of it!)
And that brings us to Stitches West 2010 ...... but that is the subject of tomorrow post.
