No Knitting This Trip

Knitting this week has been interrupted by travel. John and I drove to San Antonio Monday for another meeting. Our stay was unexpectedly cut short and we had to drive to Port Arthur on Tuesday. Returned home yesterday afternoon. Many hours were spent in the car. Though this is prime knitting time for a lot of knitters, I've discovered I don't really enjoy it. The yarn and needles stayed packed most of this trip.

The only knitting to show is the swatch for the cardigan (pattern #241) I'm planning to knit.

Looks like the gauge is just right. Now all I need to do is find some time to get started.

Matt is coming home for few days! Haven't seen him since August, so I'm looking forward to his visit. The upstairs is still pretty much like he left it--in need of attention. Think I'll be concentrating on housework today.

Last night we were treated to a beautiful Texas sunset.

  18. Love the sunset pic. Very nice!
    The only time I can't knit in the car, is if I'm in the back seat. I get carsick. Sorry you're trip was cut short. (Unless you're not sorry)
