Soon I'll be in Florida, knitting in the sunshine on the beach. After swimming in the ocean. Ah. Sounds so good.
First, though, an update. Last Saturday I was here with the socks:
Now I have only about two inches before the short-row toe and completion. Perfect plane knitting, I think. Once they are done, I'll sew together the cat pieces (the number one reason I stopped knitting toys).
I'm taking Aunt Chris's pillow back with me, too. I have another four inches of that. I'm forcing myself to finish it; I figure taking a limited number of projects to Florida will encourage knitting on the pillow back. I'm also taking some yummy Louisa Harding yarn for some fingerless gloves. Those are for a present for one of Dan's friends. I am planning a post about why I want to knit for new acquaintances. I've got to get to the airport now, so pontification will come in a few days. See you Wednesday!
