Sorry I worried a few folks. We've been travelling for a couple of weeks with our summer house guests, my mother-in-law Verna and Rob's childhood friend Brian. We went many places in the West, including Joshua Tree, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Zion. And I did knit on the long road trip, though not so much as you might think, because I've been fighting crampy hands and arms lately. Still, I've accomplished a few things:
The Very Berry T-Shirt is done except for Kitchenering one underarm, and then blocking. I managed to do one Kitchener seam in the car, but decided against trying to do the other one with so many distractions.
I made some progress on a cardi for Elinoire. This is the Spring Garden Cardi from Kirsten Cowan's Irresistible Knits, being knit in the fabulously soft Jaeger Roma (and yes, it's reverse stockinette, I didn't photograph it inside out). The only problem is that I've hit a big error in the pattern — the instructions for the shoulder cap are completely wrong — and there appear to be no published errata. I've written to the publisher to ask about it, but I am sure I can recalculate the shoulder cap if I need to. Just lazy!
Finally, I completed a gorgeous beret, Gretel by the beautiful Ysolda Teague. The pattern costs a small amount of money, but it's way worth it — Ysolda's patterns are top-notch. It's not blocked yet, but here it is pre-blocking:
What have you all been up to?
