I just realized I never posted over here that we were back from vacation (in case you haven't been reading our travel blog). The jet lag this time is really horrible, with the addition of a cold that started on the plane from Chicago to Nashville. At least I didn't come down with the cold until after vacation :) I have a ton of craft related stuff to discuss from Japan that I'll post once I finish organizing our trip pictures.
In the meantime, here's a picture of my current WIP (and travel knitting project) - a clapotis knit out of Malabrigo Silky Wool:
I kept trying to come up with creative ways to photograph it on the trip - in this picture, it's hanging on a cherry tree that's about to bloom in the city of Kakunodate. I was surprised that I didn't manage to get as much knitting done on the trip as I expected! On train rides, we were often making plans for the next town. On the airplane rides, I was usually trying to get some sleep :)
