Numerical Knitting

Airport delays = knitted products!

Filed under: Knitting — by bethc @ 11:46 am

I had a quick two day trip to Chicago at the end of the week to present at a conference. I have found that now that I knit all the time, being stuck in an airport isn’t bad! Hours in both Dulles and O’Hare went quickly with knitting to do and knitting podcasts to listen to! A few days before I left I decided I should knit something for my cousin who was trekking out to the suburbs to see me. I started on a Mason-Dixon ballband, and when that was done so fast I started on the inverse. Of course the second wasn’t done when I saw her and I ended up buying her dinner so I didn’t give them away. The good news, they’re both done now and can be put away in case of an emergency gift need!

I also made more progress on both my Shedir and my Chevron Scarf. I started the Shedir shortly before the cruise. I made a mistake on one round early on, but went on. I am slowly convincing myself that I’m ok with that. Unfortunately, it looks like chemo is not in the works for the intended recipient, the progress of the cancer is too great… I will keep knitting, and hoping!

When I bought just a little Socks that Rock at Maryland Sheep and Wool I had in mind that I would make a Chevron Scarf. I cast on during the cruise and am loving the process. So far this scarf has been knit on a cruise ship and an airplane at Tae Kwon Do and Ikea. I love how it’s looking using Seastone and Lemongrass. I think this will be my “on the go” knitting for the summer.

I have discovered that Sunday has a really different meaning when on Monday B will go to work and Bunny will go to camp and I will stay home! Ah, summer lovin’…


  1. oh dear! i always get a little weak in the knees when i see your ms&w haul. i love how knitting and podcasts pass the time! sometimes, er, it passes a little too quickly and i’ve found i’ve knitted my day away. love the chevron scarf! oh, and i’m sending good thoughts out for your friend!

  3. Thanks for compliments on kauni 🙂 I’m still a little slower when I have to knit with 2 hands verses 1 hand LOL. I’m not that great at continental knitting. But it’s such a beautiful sweater that I have to make myself do the stranded knitting I normally avoid.

    I really love that yarn and how your chevron scarf is coming along! Those colors are just my cup of tea–green being my fav:-)

  4. I love your chevron scarf–so beautiful! I think it will be my stress-less knitting once I start working on my thesis this fall.

  5. I love the colors of your chevron scarf! It looks like such a great pattern, especially when the colors work together so nicely.

    Prayers and best wishes go out to the potential Shedir recipient.
