Sidetracked



Moving along with the Leaf Tank, albiet a bit slowly, when I got sidetracked by the Sunflower Tam. I picked up some buttery Queensland Collection Kathmandu Aran and could not resist making this my carry-along project. Gauge was sufficiently off that I had to rip the entire thing out once, go down a couple needle sizes, twist the knits in the ribbing, and cast on 80 stitches (whew!), but now it will fit my daughter... next winter.

My real dilemma is whether to bring my cone of Denim Silk along on my 2-week trip back home. I don't want to put the leaf tank down for 2 weeks. Is it crazy to carry a cone across the country?

Love the hat, and NO, not crazy at all to carry a cone of yarn. I usually take 3 projects if we go away, and only get to 1 of them. And then visit another lys and get another one... LOL. but hey, I am prepared.

I agree with Sherry, not crazy to carry a cone of yarn. Two weeks seems like a long time to be away from that gorgeous project.

Thanks for the support... I'll take the tank, the hat, and Lotus Bloosom Tank from IK... that should keep me busy!
