Have wheel, will travel


Apart from taking a minor wrong turn at the very end, the trip went smoothly, in spite of going on what was probably our hottest day so far (95 deg). Toby traveled very well, and found sorts of new things to investigate at every turn, and having kids and a dog or 2 to play with is great fun!

I made a lot of progress on the Maisy sock on the drive. I got past the heel on the 2nd sock – plain K2, P2 Rib is great almost mindless knitting! Neither of the other projects works nearly as well for the purpose πŸ˜‰

I didn’t want to break my streak, so I brought my 10 Minutes a Day along. The S-10 rode along, sharing the back seat with Toby, and I also brought my Bosworth midi and more of the grey Border Leicester, which is what I spun last night.

Small happy dance – shortly before we left, I received a couple of copies of the Sept 2008 Creative Knitting, and my Garter & Moss Vest is in it. I’m very pleased with the photo!

  1. Sounds like the trip went well. I’m so glad. It was a beast yesterday wasn’t it? And congrats on the vest. I will have to pick up a copy;-)

  2. The merino silk is yummy. Looking forward to seeing the vest!
