For the last 6 weeks, we have been traveling. I was starting to forget what home looked like. The laundry is overflowing the hamper. Now, I just want to stay home for awhile.
When we travel, the other half of the team does all the driving, and I navigate. I am sure you have had these conversations in your car:
She: "Turn left here"
She: "Right here"
He: "I thought you said left!"
In order to keep harmony in the car, I knit. I try not to leave home without my knitting bag. I take simple things, that don't require a lot of pattern checking. Socks are my usual, but this time, I took a couple of different things.
Fingerless gloves, made from Berroco Comfort Sock. The yarn is an acrylic-nylon blend and is lovely and soft. The pattern is Annie's Fingerless Mits , free from Ravelry. They are ribbed and look very narrow, but I think they will fit most ladies' hands.
Wow, you can see the magnetic manicure!
Meanwhile, a friend of long standing (I don't want to call her an OLD friend, but we have been friends since Grade 1) is about to become a grandma for the first time. She is very excited, so I made her grandbaby an Easy Peasy Newborn Sock Hat
Both of the items were photographed on the beds in hotel rooms, because both were given away on the trip.
I am linking to The Needle and Thread Network, WIP Wednesday.
