Just 20 rows

Why is it that when you go on a trip you think you can knit about 20 times faster than you can?

As I was packing on Monday for my trip to Washington, D.C., I decided to pack my knitting. Now, it's kind of like when you were in college. You go on vaction, take all your books, intend to study and you don't open one book. Isn't it the same with knitting? I packed 10 balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. What was I thinking? I was starting a new sweater for goodness sake, out of her new book Cashmerino DK, and I guess I thought I would have the back and sleeves knit in the 4 days I am out of town.

So what have I knit since Monday at 10AM? Just 20 rows. Now I will have you know it's 20 rows of 146 stitches, but it is just 20 rows. Not even one ball yet.

I had better get knitting...

For you, 20 rows is almost like no knitting at all. Horrors!!

You should see how much I took to Canada with me for a week. You'd have thought I was going to be gone for a year or two.

It'll be interesting to see how much we pack for the cruise!

Welcome to blogland! I know what you mean about travel and knitting. I took knitting and extra-extra yarn to Italy with me and didn't knit a stitch!! Not one!! Hmmm! I guess I shouldn't have been knitting in Italy anyway---but not even on the plane?!!
