Five hours of uninterrupted knitting time. Doesn’t that sound heavenly? It certainly sounds a lot better than sitting on a plane for five hours. It’s all in the way you look at it.
I’m not a big fan of flying. It doesn’t scare me. I just dislike schedule delays, waiting on lines, the indignity of security, over-priced food, disgusting bathrooms and cramped seats. I much prefer a road trip. But going cross country to visit my family is a heck of a lot faster by plane, so that’s where I was. And I was able to get so much knitting done.
I finished the gray and white baby blanket and gave it to my niece. She told me that they are planning to paint the nursery gray too.
I also finished the blue socks I was making for myself. They fit great, but I’ll tuck them in my drawer for cooler weather.
I also made a button scarf that my friend Kim requested. (Sorry, I forgot to take a picture.) She wanted something to keep her neck warm in her cold office. And she asked that it stay securely in place, and not dangle and get in the way. And soft would be nice too. Well, I managed all of that, plus it looked great on her. I may make a few more and list them in my Easy shop this holiday season.
Oh, I almost forgot. I finally started the Seaside Heights top and got quite a bit done. Figuring out if I have the gauge correct is difficult with this yarn. I may not know if it will fit until I’m done. Cross your fingers.
The family visit was wonderful. The plane trips were tolerable. Three (!) knitting projects completed. I call that a great vacation.
