Airplane knitting

Somehow I ended up with two projects. Just in case I'm bored in Vegas and can't find something to do then I can sit in my hotel room and knit. :)

The first is the Mitred Square Scarf - a free pattern from Rowan's website.

The yarn is Rowan Kidsilk Haze Stripe and I'm using colour 361 - the same as the picture - shades of grey, mauve and teal.

The second project is Edge. It's a shawl by Laura Aylor and I'm using Lorna's Laces Solemate. Once you get going the pattern is pretty mindless.

The third colour is very wild. I will try and get to it tomorrow in the store.
My blog writing and knitting have been delayed because I had to take back two rows on Beth's knitting. She has been busy this week. I believe this is cowl #3. She's doing very well with her knitting until there is a mistake or the ends need to be sewn in. I'm afraid how many phone calls I will get while I'm away with knitting questions. She's on a roll and she'll be at home with Roko next week.

I've done my laundry and hope that everything I think I need will fit into the suitcase. I wish I was one of those people who can pack lightly. You never know what you might need or what you want to wear each day. I think I get that from my mom. They have everything they need in Myrtle Beach but their van is always full on the way down.

Grey's is done and the baseball game is on. I would like to knit for a while but it's going to be an early morning. Beth and Roko are going to be on the road at 7am. I'm going to sign off and head to bed. Maybe I'll knit in the morning before work.

Have a good trip. I know what you mean about packing. When we travel for ten weeks at a time, I have a whole suitcase full of knitting things. :) Gotta stay busy!

I get being bored in Las Vegas. My husband drags me there every year and while I like it for the first day or so, the end of the second day I plop down and knit! You have two good projects to keep you busy!
