My New Mexico Odyssey, Part 1

Once again, I've been away and neglectful. But I have some great pictures to share from my recent (well, fairly recent) trip to New Mexico.

Here I am in Las Cruces with my grandma and my "new" cousin Elizabeth. This is the day of the tornado warning and hailstorm that pitted Elizabeth's rental car hood and broke its windshield. (My uncle's little Honda hybrid was in even worse shape with a completely smashed back windshield and lots more damage.
Here I am diligently working on David's monkey despite the Biblical weather outside. See, David? I promised I'd get the monkey done. (And I did--more on that in another post.)

Here is Elizabeth and me (man, you're short, Elizabeth!) in Old Mesilla for a dedication of a historic house.

We took a trip to White Sands with Elizabeth's two sons, Chris and Joey, plus Elizabeth's sister Prissy and her two daughters. I had a lot of fun experimenting with my mom's calendar while the "kids" buried each other in the sand. Here's one of my self portraits.

After the trip to Las Cruces, my mom and I drove back to Aztec. The three of us (Mom, Dad, and me) drove up to Chama and Los Ojos, for yarn and sightseeing. My dad even bought me yarn, but it's actually for a laptop bag for them, so I'm not sure that counts as gift yarn.

They'd just done a bunch of dyeing the day before, so we got to go back and see all the beautiful colors drying. Beautiful, huh?

And here I am trying to decide what to get. I think what I finally decided was that I wanted to go back and take one of their five day weaving classes where you take a class all day and then get to stay in the cute casita out back. Man--check out Tierra Wools. It's amazing!

One happy knitter!

I'm going to post this, but I have many more things to write about. Finished monkeys, the LA County Fair, another leftover party at That Yarn Store. Stay tuned!

For shame on me. I just realized I hadn't even commented on your post yet ^_^. Sorry :) Very cool, sounds like a fun trip. Wish I could have been in Farmington :/
Well, can't wait to see the rest of the pics!

I'm so glad you had a good get-away. And I can't thank you enough for tipping me off to MorYork! I went for NELA this past weekend, and was blown away. Can't wait 'til next month.
