One thing too much travel is good for is finishing knitting projects. During all the November business travel, I finished my Serendipity Socks. I finished A's blanket (with a little end weaving help from Elspeth) on December 3. He loves it. On our pre-Thanksgiving vacation, I knit a February Baby Sweater for A's expected sister. I finally sewed the buttons onto it Friday night—allowing me to leave it in Wisconsin and avoid trusting a precious handknit to the USPS.
On the Friday after Thanksgiving I realized that my mourning brain could not cope with any of the projects on my needles. I bought enough Silk Garden for 2 striped scarves at Knit Happens in colors inspired by Nonny. Soothing K1P1 ribbing in luxurious yarn was exactly what I needed to get through the past two weeks. I knit the first scarf in 5 days and gave it to my cousin Sara before Nonny's memorial service. Betsy's is more than half finished; I will give it to her when she visits DC in January.
Oh. You want pictures of all these lovelies? I cannot do that right now. Before our pre-Thanksgiving trip to Florida, D finally ordered my birthday present.
It is full of picture of vacation, all my recent knitting projects, and my extended family, but I cannot figure out how to get my computer to recognize the Nikon photo format. Now that I have started using the D90, my 5 year old PowerShot S400 is no fun at all. Sometime soon, I will figure it out. Until then, I will keep taking pictures without being able to share them.
