Before I fly away .....

I just want to say that I had a blast at the Sit N Knit Logo party on Tuesday night. I was especially excited because I made these for the raffle. Limited edition Sit N' Knit stitch markers. Congratulations to all of the lucky raffle winners!!!

Also, here is my travel project. It is from the Fall 2007 issue of Knit Simple magazine, page 38. Now you must be wondering how am I going to Fair Isle on the plane. Well, I'm not gonna do it. I am planning to knit the border in a solid pink color, then knit the portion of the vest that is Fair Isle, using a variegated yarn that matches the border. I am using Jaeger Baby Merino, DK weight. I started this yesterday morning, and continued while I was at the hair salon, waiting for my hair to dry. I started on size 3 needles for the ribbing. The next step is to begin with the variegated portion using size 5 needles.

Hopefully, while I am away I will be able to get internet access, and update the blog on my progress.

Nice stitch markers! I think the vest (and your very sensible mods) is a perfect plane/vacation project. I hope you get internet access, not only so I hear about all the fun you're having, but so you can get the hat attack pattern.

Glad you got on the plane with your knitting needles with not problem. I figured that was what your phone call this afternoon to me was about. I told you not to worry. I think the color yarns you have chosen for the vest are perfect. I really like that pattern and would have done what you did. I'm not up for Fair Isle. Have a fantatsic trip!
