Vacation knittingPosted: June 29, 2011
Two weeks ago tomorrow, I found my seat on my flight, took out my yarn and my needles, and cast on eleven stitches for my first triangular shawl, the Multnomah.
After two days of no knitting at all (Shabbat), ripping back the first 20 or so rows of the lace pattern (which took three attempts, as I started out trying just to rip two of the lace repeats, a big fail), and a few days where I paid a lot extra to view the scenery so I felt I shouldn’t knit, I’m making good progress towards the finish line. (Where the finish line is defined as running out of yarn. Although I was at a yarn store this morning, I didn’t weigh my diminishing ball of yarn to see how much is actually left.)
HELP REQUEST: I’m a tight binder-off-er. What’s your favorite loose or stretchy bind-off?
My multnomah went whale watching with me:
I promise! That big blurry spot in the corner of the picture is my knitting!
It also went on a seaplane with me. I did not, however, do any actual knitting on the seaplane.
