This is the project that I worked on while I was in the Quad Cities.
Interestingly enough, when I got to Logan airport, the knitting needles were of NO QUESTION...none at all...but they had to re-scan my bag over a deck of cards -- A DECK OF CARDS!!!!
...and still no question about the knitting needles.
Here's a few pictures, because you really can't see the detail unless you get a bit closer. I call it a sampler because that's exactly what it is, just a sampler of a few knit-and-purl patterns.
I won't talk about the flights just yet -- needless to say, we were spending the night at O'Hare (Tom, the weather was worse than anything -- word of the year for me: "terra firma") Besides, the things I would have to say about some portions of the journey would only carry language too unsuitable for a public forum, and so, onto blogspot it goes!
At least my knitting kept my hands busy. Last year, remember, I didn't bring my knitting and I ended up with several bottles of vodka to keep my hands occupied...and this year, well, "several" only ended up being three over the nine-day period, but, out came a nice red shawl. I'm thinking about donating it to the "Go Red" campaign...don't know yet.
...and there's a couple pictures of me just knitting in the airport in Moline.
I haven't blogged about the journey just yet, but, it's in the works.
