I have been hemming and hawing over what knitting to bring with me. I have 3 skeins for Jim's hand spun vest. Well half a skein is now the bottom 2 inches of that vest. Then the Aflame Sock needs to get finished. However it is very difficult to go so far for 5 days with only 2 items to knit. What if I finished them or a needle broke or I run out of yarn? sigh I discussed this with a laughing Jim. I do realize that I will get no, nada, zilch knitting done on the 7-8 hour drive in either direction (that's a lot of missed knitting time - sigh) as I am the driver and just can't figure out a way to knit and drive safely. Whatever happened to that rail highway idea for cars? Socks take me a minimum of 2 weeks. Jim's vest might go fast or not as Jim is large. OK so even if I wasn't socializing with my family, if I had 3 hours per day I probably wouldn't get it done. 2 projects should do it.
This morning a UFO I was designing several years ago was refound lingering under the table in the UFO pile. Sheesh, now why did I give that up? Oh yea, the gauge is wrong. Well that can easily be fixed. So before I knew it the too big part was frogged, the partial pattern revised and it all got stuffed into my carry bag. Now I feel better.
And who knows. Last time I went to RI this shawl was the result.
