This was a perfect traveling project – laceweight yarn (so it didn’t weigh much and the in-progress knitting packed up small), not-so-small needles (I used size 6’s) and a really easy pattern (stockinette stitch on the bias). I cast on the day before we left because I didn’t want to fiddle with the provisional cast-on away from home. The knitting started in earnest just before our flight to Paris,
continued through Paris, to Milan.
and then to Florence. I don’t have any photos of the work-in-progress after that train photo, but I know the scarf was in my bag for those 463 steps to the top of the Duomo (because I knitted a few rows in a coffee shop that afternoon). That was one great view! I think it spent the rest of Florence in our apartment so I could “travel light”.
It was my project for the plane trip home, too (when I finally started listening to The Goldfinch)…and I finally bound it off when we were away for Memorial Day (yeah, almost two weeks ago).
So this morning I wove in the two ends, soaked and blocked it…and this afternoon, I took a few photos. Finished.
Many, many happy memories wrapped up this one. I can’t wait to wear it!
