One of the great benefits of road tripping versus taking a plane is all that uninterrupted drive knitting time. Knitting is a wonderful way to take a craft on the road with you.
I finished 5ish projects with our 2,700 miles of driving, of which I did only maybe 250 miles. My husband is excellent.
This shawl represents the biggest project I finished. It's knit up in a wool/silk blend. It's also my first attempt at a lace project. It was really quite simple. The only question is:
Why on earth do I need a shawl if I live in Florida?
Truthfully, I don't know! But I love it so darn much that I'm looking for any 5 degree drop in temperature as an excuse to wear it. And also, I've started a second shawl (should finish it tonight) and have purchased yarn for several others. It's not ALL selfish knitting... I think.
