So, while I was on the vacation, I assumed I’d finish the Warm Shawl AND my Mystery Malabrigo Project (pictured at right) and return refreshed and ready to attack the sleeves of my Tangled Yoke Cardigan.
I assume I am not the first person to make this mistake. My Mystery Project did get many helpful rows finished; I used the plane ride home to pick up and knit several rows of my Warm Shawl. So I did get some knitting done on, essentially, the first and last days of my trip.
When I did KIP I got positive reactions, from both a room service type and a flight attendant on the way home (he kept insisting the Warm Shawl was impossible to knit. For a beginner, maybe, but, as I kept assuring him, if it was really hard I wouldn’t be able to do it!).
It’s funny how, until you knit, knitting seems really hard. It’s just looping yarn, really. It’s beautiful but it’s not (usually) hard.
I didn’t get the chance to visit StitchDC, unfortunately. If the Dowager Princess goes to DC for law school, I will!
