The Fiber Gathering designers' blog tour has finished...sadly, we've run out of posts for this trip. (time to go home, do the laundry, and get back to a figurative sense, of course. :)
I really enjoyed both reading and contributing to the posts! I hope the tour explained how a book like this comes together behind the scenes, too. Since the blog tour is over, my well traveled yarn contest, below, is also now officially closed. Winners will be chosen in a couple of days and contacted, I promise. I'll also post winners' info on the blog, just in case I can't contact you any other way.

In the meanwhile, I took a real, actual trip on an airplane to Virginia to spend Passover with my family. I've gotten in some quality Auntie time with both of my nephews! You know you're really enjoying the seder while being the aunt/referee to a three year old nephew and seat mate. Hint: he ate heartily, including eating both his and another auntie's egg, a whole piece of gefilite fish AND just about went swimming in his chicken soup while eating his matzo ball. The splashing was duck-like.

Anyway, I'm having a few days off here for Passover... So far, besides the seder itself, this has involved taking a walk with the professor to catch some sort of special Virginia butterflies (one caught, two sighted); lots of book reading and playing with one nephew, cuddling with another fussy and uncomfortable 6 month old nephew, lots of food, time with parents, grandmother, and siblings. I have managed some time to knit, read, and even sleep late! We're off today on more adventures.

Enjoy your holidays! I'll be back in a couple of days with yarn winners and more news!

Isn't it wonderful to have him be six months old, fussy, even?

Welcome home; have a great visit. Let me know if you see any mountain laurels blooming, I miss them...

Sounds like a wonderful visit. I love how Passover this year landed on Holy Thursday, which Christians celebrate as the day Jesus had his Last Supper (aka Passover) with his disciples. The seasons best blessings on you!
