A twelve hour drive means lots of DS games for the kids and lots of knitting for Grandma.
I started a little cardi for Abigail. The vision is a short-sleeved, buttons-only-at-the-top, summer cardi, knit with stash yarn. Specifically, Cottonella by Novita.
The yarn, being rationed by it's discontined-ness, means the length of the sweater is up in the air. I will knit the sleeves first. The body will be as long as the yarn holds out. I am racing to get to the separation of body and sleeves to make the car knitting easier.
Our drives are usually boring enough that lots of knitting gets done. With a 7 and 9 year old in the back seat, I'm expecting interruptions. How much knitting can get done in public washrooms? In a couple of days, I'll know.
