Knit and Fly

It's a good thing I enjoy flying, because yesterday we were on two separate flights. I never get tired of the view.

All this air travel has been good for the socks. They are progressing nicely.

On the flight to Houston:

Almost to the toe.

On the flight to Tulsa:

One finished and one started.

Travel advice for knitters: Do not attempt the kitchener stitch in a busy airport terminal, no matter how tempting. I made a mess of my sock and had to spend the next flight fixing it.

I think I forgot to mention that this trip is a tag-along business trip. John is in a meeting today and I have the car. Our flight for home leaves later this afternoon, so I don't have much time to explore. I could probably find a yarn shop or two, but I doubt by suitcase could hold anymore wool.

There will be lots to do when I get home. There always is after a trip. One of the first things I want to do is start a square for an afghan Laura is organizing. It will be for a family (or families) in Greensburg, Kansas. If you would like to help, you can find the specifics here.

Some of you may be interested to know that the person that started the fire that destroyed our town's high school, turned himself in this week. He is a sophomore at the school. I do not know him or his family. Right now it isn't clear why he did it.

See you next week.

  1. That sock looks great! I save my Kitchenering until the kids are in bed and my nerves had some time to settle down because I really don't want to pick apart a toe I've partially Kitchenered!

    Have a safe trip home!

    The house could be quiet as a tomb when I start kitchener, then..out of nowhere! I've started doing it in the car between the time I let my son out at school and the time I have to be at work! Glad the fire starter has been found. Sorry he was so young.

  5. Your sock is very pretty, I'm going to have to try that one.

    TECH Knitting has a tutorial on a new way of doing the Kitchener stich using knitting needles, instead of a "sewing" needle. I haven't tried it yet (no socks in progress at the moment), but it looks interesting! (http://techknitting.blogspot.com/2007/05/easier-way-to-kitchener-stitch-also.html).

    BTW:I wasn't thinking about the color for the square I started either, but there will be many more colors for Greensburg squares!
