I'm back!

I have returned from the UK in one piece! And I promise to tell you all about it, later, because right now I'm about to go home from lab and I don't have a proper long post in me. That and I don't have many photos of myself to share, since they were all taken with my dad's camera. However, I do have some great sheep photos that I'll post tomorrow, to distract you from the fact that there is no knitting. Yes, you read that correctly, no knitting. I knit 5 rows of the Clapotis in 10 days. 5 rows. That's pathetic. I don't even want to talk about it. When you hear more about the trip perhaps you will understand. There was also a sock crisis...aren't you so intrigued?!?
But, what I really want to do here today is acknowledge this lovely package I received the day I left for England, from my Dye-o-Rama swap pal, who I now know to be Lauren. She sent me all these lovely goodies: Here I have a giant Maine mug, with a fiesty looking lobster (how did she know I love huge mugs? I'm very excited about this!) There is also a Maine notepad and some soap, as well as the postcard and nifty knitting card you see. And, of course, some beautiful handdyed yarn! Not sure how well the colors turned out in the photo, but the yarn is several shades of light green, turquoise, and purple. I love it, it's just my colors, and now I have to find the perfect pattern to show it off. There was also a huge bag of Lemonheads, which went on the plane with me and disappeared rapidly. Don't tell my dentist! Thank you so much Lauren, I love everything you sent. And now I'm reminded that I've been wanting to go to Maine!

Your dyeorama yarn looks great! Hope you had a good trip (despite this mysterious sock crisis)!
