We celebrated Memorial Day by taking a quick jaunt up to the Northwest Suburbs to visit friends. Said jaunt involved about 3.5 hours in the car ... each way. Since this journey did not require me to drive,I'm sure it will be no surprise to you that I knit in the car.
On the way to our destination, I worked on the BSJ in mystery yarn. And so, I took my lace on the road...
Here, we see the BSJ looking out the car window at our host's lovely back yard:
I'm still rather in love with the transformation that the BSJ makes.... from this
into an adorable baby sweater. (And yes, when I get a decent picture, I'll show you).
Our friends welcomed us with a nice pool party for us and another couple we all know. This was soon followed by a full on party party, as neighbors flowed in for a more expansive party. The knitting stayed in its bag for the rest of the visit (odd that).
In the morning, we enjoyed breakfast, and a quiet visit before hitting the road again.
On the way home, with a lovely finished but unsewn BSJ resting in my bag, I turned to my dear friend Irtfa'a.
Yes, I am indeed mad enough to not only knit lace on the road, I'll bead it in the car!
the end result of my mad car knitting..... I got to the end of the Quill and Feather chart by the end of the night on knit night!
Next up -- EDGING! (And I think I might even know where I'll put the beads in the edging).
