So I haven’t been on vacation all this time — I’ve actually been back for a few weeks.  oops.

You can check out some photos of the trip here…no pictures from the wedding that we went to while over there, but some photos of Munich, Tegernsee, & Helsinki.  It was a great trip — a lot of go-go-go, but also a good chance to relax with our friends who got married.

Life back in the States has been going at full tilt.  I was hoping it would slow down a bit, but it doesn’t seem to be in the cards!  Lots of exciting visits this weekend — going to see friends and having friends come stay with us.  Plus wedding plans (bought the dress!).  And a full work schedule.   Oh, and I’ve got a full slate of knitting to accomplish this fall!  Here’s the latest shawl finished, and probably the last one for a while (what with baby sweaters and holiday gifts coming due soon…):

This is the Aestlight shawl — a lovely garter-y number that knit up beautifully in Malabrigo Sock.  I feared I wasn’t going to have enough yarn for the shawl, but eked it out with only a tiny bit to spare.  I’ll be getting a lot of use out of it if the last few days have been any indication of how the weather is going to be!  I am loving the cool mornings and lovely bright days of the end of summer.
