Remember when I posted a few weeks back about the knitting I had planned for the trip? I asked y’all to weigh in on how much of it I might actually finish … and Patty guessed right with “very little”!
I did start 2nd Avenue on the plane and made it an inch or so into that first pink section before we landed. I also worked a little on Whiskyfied. 2nd Avenue saw a little more play time in Vancouver. Then Whiskyfied was the first project I pulled out on board. It was the morning of our first day at sea, and it was a little rough. In hindsight, a chart and a project to pay close attention to was not the best choice. I haven’t picked it up again since! I also never started the socks. There was indeed, very little knitting.
I just looked back through all the photos and found evidence of knitting in only three of them – and none from the cruise!
This is the Saturday we were in Anchorage – a full ten days after I started and I’m still only on the second pink section.
|me and Lydia – twinning!|
And this is Monday night, on the flight home (the third photo was taken about 15 minutes later, so there’s no real progress to show :-).
I finally finished that gold section Wednesday
and started the speckled part Thursday.
This morning, I started the final section – nine rugby stripes (eight more to go)!
Then a garter edge and a picot bind off in pink. I’m hoping to take a finished scarf with me next week when I fly to Madison. Pre-Alaska me might’ve planned to wear it this weekend (and likely would’ve done it). Post-Alaska me, well…of course I do have a 15 hour road trip in my future. Next week I’ll share my plans for that (and hopefully an FO).
Joining in with Kat and friends. Happy knitting and happy Wednesday!
