The amazing no-progress mitten
1, I thought it would be a good Australia travel companion, but at the last minute it decided it would rather stay on my coffee table while I went on the trip. Random thought: why are there not knitting shops in airports? Okay maybe not so random...
2, I thought I could work on it during the first week I was back (and terribly jet-lagged). This was a mistake.
3, I thought I should have been using size 3 needles, when in fact I should have been using size 1. Due to (2) I failed to realize this for quite some time.
4, As a result of the combined effects of (2) and (3), I took it all out and started over. It is now back to where it was before, only better. :)
In other random news, I had a funny coincidence this weekend - I came back from Boston on the bus, and at the station in Portland I was getting a juice from the vending machine when who should come up behind me and say my name, but - are you ready? - my seatmate Ken from the getting back from Australia adventure!!! The world is a very funny place!
