Stitching, knitting, reading, life…whatever catches my eye

The Other WIP

One might think I’ve only been stitching lately, but this isn’t so!

I started a knit piece for our recent trip back east.  I find knitting FAR easier to deal with on an airplane and a pattern that is easily memorized is a win all around.

I didn’t have anything that fit the bill already started (surprised? Nah…) so wound up a couple cakes of sock yarn, loaded up a pattern (or two or three) on my iPad and grabbed a needle that would work with my yarn.  I figured I’d make the final decision when I was ready to cast on.

At the airport on Friday, I considered the options….

The winner:

Wingspan in Lorna’s Laces Zombie BBQ

This is where I was when we got home.  I’ve since started triangle #7 (of 8 total).  The fact I had this yarn in stash is Michelle‘s fault.  She recently posted a gorgeous scarf and I hunted down a skein not long after.  As I figured I’d be knitting over Halloween, it seemed a good choice!

  1. It is looking lovely! And it never occurred to me to consider a shawl airplane knitting. I usually take a pair of socks. Now I will really have to think about what I’m going to take on my trip.
