Lately I've been knitting Traveling Woman, and just lovin' it. Which is apt. I'm leaving for a trip to Texas tomorrow, it'll be the start of a ton of going to and fro through July. I'm past the solid stockinette section and on to the lace repeats. As I've mentioned , oh, like every time I fly, I do not sit on a plane without some chemical assistance. Just a touch. It makes for pleasant airtime, but really messes up any knitting that requires counting of YO's.
Traveling Woman will come along for some clear headed ground knitting. Maybe with a beer and some chili fries here?
BTW, this is some fabulous vermillion Lisa Souza merino. I thought it was saturated red when I bought it (damn that lighting) but in truth, like this slightly orangey red intensity even better.
So, I'm off to my LYS to acquire something simpleminded yet elegant. I'm thinking Gretel, in Be Sweet bamboo. And then I can pack my equipment for two shoots, and some clothes. Girls's gotta have some priorities, right?
