I am getting ready to travel down to Southern California for the weekend. It is my brother's 59th birthday, and my sisters and I are going to celebrate with him.
Although I will definitely bring projects, I can't bring anything that requires too much concentration. I have been trying to think of which projects would be easiest to bring. One thing is certain, I don't want to bring my There and Back Again Story Scarf by Frivolite Handicrafts.
I am trying to knit at least 10 rows each night. Since I got started during December, when I was on vacation, I am ahead. In fact, I am about 1 week ahead. If I don't bring the scarf, that will be 2, possibly 3 days where I don't work on it. UGH! I'm already changing my mind. If I bring it and only get 5 rows done each day (that is about 1 hour of knitting), I won't be as far behind.
Anyway, I am on the 4th chart.
So far I have left Bilbo's Hobbit Hole and followed the path past a tree to the stone trolls.
In the next part, we travel through the Goblin Mountains
where Bilbo found the Ring.
You can just see the trees at the top. I am actually a bit further than these photos. I have already knit in the giant Eagles who give the dwarves and Bilbo a ride.
It is so much fun to watch the story develop row by row.
