We're outta here!

The countdown is on - only six hours before the plane leaves the ground. Ooh, how exciting! I've done everything I possibly can to be ready, all that's left is putting on shoes and locking the door on the way out.

I finished the Elizabeth cardigan for my niece. I had to break into a third skein, but have decided to make a pair of fingerless mitts for her as well. It's not likely, but on the off chance that there is still enough left, I'll knit a hat too.

Elizabeth cardigan, knit with Malabrigo Arroyo in English Rose. Lovely. It looks a little weird being blocked, but it will look much better on. I spent five minutes coercing T into putting it on for me, just so I could see what it looked like on a person, but I was so distracted by how awful he looked in pink that I couldn't really tell how it fit. Never mind, I'll get some pics of it on my niece when next I'm down that way.

After finishing the cardigan, I cast on the optional round socks for Sock Madness. I've managed to knit just past the heel on the first sock, so if I get bored on the plane or in the airport, I still have most of a foot to knit. I should be back on solid ground before I need to dig out a tapestry needle and scissors to graft the toe together. Otherwise, I'll just have to read I guess...

Good thing I have plenty of books loaded onto Hedwig, all ready to go :-)

Well, I'm gonna go watch a couple of TV programs On Demand to fill in some time before dinner. I'll try and update while we're over in the US, and if I see a squirrel or a Walmart creature, I'll be sure to get a photo!!

Enjoy your week, I know I will ;-)
