Knitting and Travel

Wow, 2 weeks is a long time between posts. I thought I would do just a little update. I finished another pair of Fetching, this time for Kim. When I had cut the last string I proclaimed that the next pair was for ME!

I really didn't mind working with this color so much. It kind of grew on me. The color is a bright green, almost neon. It is Knitpick's Swish Superwash in the colorway Aloe. I think I used US 3's. Modifications to make them a little bit longer.

I finished the sleeves to Kim's sweater and started on the fronts. I think I am about 1/3 of the way with them.

And here's a picture of the Chevron scarf I started. I think it will make a good airplane project. More on that in a second.

So, Monday, Kim and I fly out to California to spend the week with my dad. My mom is headed to an organist conference in Tuscon, AZ and dad really needs someone around to help him out if he needs it. Kim calls this trip "babysitting grandpa". I do hope we will get to one of the lys's called Purlescence Yarns.

The weather is being weird again. Mostly just cold. There may be some snow/ice coming in the next day or so. I am really hoping it doesn't interfere with our travel plans or Kim's dance on Sunday night. Please keep your fingers crossed for us.

We'll see you again next week, since I don't know what the internet connections will be like while we are down there.

Love the scarf. Wonderful combination of design and color choice. Good job!

Happy parent-sitting, and happy yarn shopping.
