Passing Down Crazy

Because Sometimes the Best Thing You Can Give Your Kid is an Addiction…To Yarn

There Are Holes In My Sweater


Fortunately, the holes are supposed to be there.

I finished the eyelets in my Eyelet Cardi.  The rest of the cardigan is stockinette stitch.  Miles and miles of it.  It’s a good thing we have miles and miles to go.

We leave in exactly 48 hours.  For three weeks.  5,000 miles.  (If you just found this blog, we’re going to Washington DC, Williamsburg, North Carolina, South Carolina, and more.  I’ll keep you posted when I find internet access!)

My knitting is packed.

There are a couple of knitting bags ready.  Trevi is making the trek, as are three sweater projects.  The only problem with the sweater projects is that they’re all cotton.  I don’t mind cotton some of the time, but that’s a lot.  I also have yarn for three pairs of socks.

Two pairs are started, but I can’t start the pink and orange until I finish the Loksins.  I need the needles.

The bus is being packed:

Big bottle of Advil  *check

Clean sheets  *check

Map  *check

Clean underwear……..I gotta go.  See ya later.
