On the last day of our recent trip, we woke in Nashville, enjoyed a leisurely breakfast, and then I took my family on a little walk into ancient history.
The Parthenon is still just as impressive in the Spring as it was when I came here in October. But this time, I feel better and was able to enjoy it a bit more.
It wasn't any easier to photograph on the inside though. Just the same, one must have proof that one took one's children to a notable monument.
They look so small! Of course, standing next to a 40+ foot statue can do that to you.
I blathered on about Athena quite a bit the last time I went, so I'll refer you to that post, and will thus avoid the repetition for those who would rather not read it all again.
Instead, I'll show you pictures of the latest FO that turned into an AFO this morning.
I started these in Georgia, and finished the right hand by the end of the evening while I sat and chatted with Andi (whom I miss already). I cast on for the second mitt there, and finished it on the road home.
What? they look familiar? They should. They're just like a pair I made for Bookworm a while back, but this pair was knit as part of the pattern testing project. A tester was having a bit of a challenge with the spot where one goes from gusset to thumb and hand as separate parts, so I figured I'd knit it up myself to see what I'd done wrong in the pattern writing.
Now, of course, I've decided to make two (wait, no three) versions of the design. This one will get a longer hand, and I seem to have cast on for a gauntlet type that goes almost up to the elbow. With any luck, the basic design will be ready to publish any day now. (Fingers Crossed).
