Thanks, New Jersey

round and round and round and round
This photo represents roughly four hours of knitting on the godforsaken New Jersey turnpike. It is, perhaps, the ONLY good to come out of Sunday's drive through the Garden State. Nothing against anyone who lives there. I just can't seem to win against NJ traffic... we returned from central New York state on Sunday afternoon, only to come to a dead stop four times on the NJ Turnpike for no apparent reason.... no accidents, no tolls, just... stop. Luckily the boyfriend handled it when I couldn't anymore, and I pulled out the knitting.

This is the latest work-in-progress of mine: the Loopy Velez Cowl from the Stitch'N'Bitch book. This is take two on this project... the first time, I realized that I'd been doing the loops all wrong and they were slipping out as I kept knitting. This time I think I've got them right... but I'm not convinced that it's actually big enough to fit over my head.

It's not for me, tho. It's a long-overdue gifty for a friend. I'm hoping to have it done by the time it gets cold. And the four inches I got done in NJ represent the only tricky parts of the pattern... now there's just 7 inches of knit left.

4 Say Something!
