Jersey Shore

In EtsyFAST Challenges, Vacation on August 20, 2007 at 11:51 am

On the 2.5 hour drive down to Seaside Heights, I knit on my Mystery Project, the one that is being submitted for publication. There are some people who can’t knit and drink alcohol at the same time. There are others who don’t recommend knitting while tired. I apparantly can’t knit and talk at the same time. Half of what I knit on the drive to Seaside Heights had to be ripped out because I missed 2 rows in the repeat. It wasn’t a mistake that only a fellow knitter would notice. It was the kind of mistake a child could pick out. Mutter.

I do have good news to share about my Mystery Project. My MIL found more yarn for it! What a sigh of relief. I can stop biting my nails now and just relax. I’ll have more than enough yarn to finish now.

As promised, here are some pictures of the trip.

Over the weekend, I made some progress on the Big Dipper Scarf. It is now 15 inches long. I only have 45 more inches to knit.

Did I mention how much more slowly it is to double knit? I feel like the Little Engine That Could. I think I can. I think I can. I think I can.

I also made a sleeve for the Chili Pepper quilt and attached the binding to the front of the quilt. The rest has to be done by hand: the attaching of the binding to the back of the quilt and the attaching of the sleeve to the back of the quilt. As the quilt is “virtually done”, I can move onto the baby quilt. Woo!

  1. Your vacation looks great, even if you had to tear out. My husband doesn’t even talk to me when I’m knitting in the car.
