I really thought I would be able to post while I was away, but lack of internet access, a forgotten camera cord and a crazy fun and busy vacation got in the way. I'm back now with so much to share. I will have a bunch of FO's for the next few Fridays and a story of a fun girls' trip to a knitter's Mecca in Australia. Yippee!
In the meantime, I'm excited to share what I'm working on now. While in Australia, my friend and I did some yarn shopping and picked up some beautiful Luxury fingering weight yarn from Bendigo Woolen Mills in two shades of teal. The skeins are 200g each so we split them up and a created a pattern that we are knitting as a kind of long LONG distance knit-along.
We loved the look of this shawl but didn't have access to the pattern, so instead, we have kind of made it up without the V shape as a sort of one-row-scarf. Knitting a scarf long ways means each row takes about 20 minutes but it is making for great TV/plane/chatting-and-not-screwing-up knitting. And it makes me feel close to my lovely friend who is so far away - sniff.
It was an incredible trip but it is nice to be home in my own bed (which I currently not in due a crazy attack of jet lag) and have access to the internet 24/7. I can't wait to check out what everyone is up to on Tami's blog. According to my google reader I only have 535 unread blogs till I'm back on track. I hope that doesn't cut into my knitting time...
