I am back from my business conference. It would be a lie to say I did not enjoy staying in a top hotel, networking at cocktail and dinner parties, and attending seminars that required different brain neurons firing. But of course I fretted about the boys the entire three days. They were in perfect hands--Charlie and my folks tag teamed--but still. You know how it is.
I ambitiously packed my Aidez, thinking I'd have lots of down time--alone down time--to knit in my hotel room. Nope. I returned to my room quite late each evening and woke by 6:00 a.m. each morning to get in a workout. And there was no down time whatsoever during the day. I've attended lots of conferences in my working life. The pace of this one was remarkable. But I liked it. I'm not interested in leaving my family for any sort of boondoggle.
I have one sleeve left to go on Aidez. But then the entire thing has to be seamed! I've done one other seamed project (to be posted), and I can't say I like it much. But perhaps it's because my seaming could use some practice, so this will be good. I did recently finish up a pair of fingerless gloves.
I knit a pair exactly like these last fall, but they have gone missing so I knit another set. I used the leftover yarn from my first scarf project. I can't believe it is still cold enough to wear these, but it certainly is. This week anyways--that's Northern Virginia whiplash weather for you. The pattern is Toasty by Leslie at A Friend to Knit With. A perfect first project for double point needles, I'd say (it was mine).
