So, where did we leave off? Oh yes, the Alaska trip. I did start a scarf on the trip. This was going to be a simple one row repeat, as to not miss any sights.
It was a couple days into our trip that I actually CO. Little did I know that I would have a darn of a time having the first stitch of each row be a YO.
Needless to say I had quite the practice with this - as it took me 7 times of CO and knitting a couple of rows before I would find an error and not have the correct amount of stitches. Frog.
Now in my defense, I did CO when we were in a lounge on the ship listening to a guitar player who could impersonate Gordon Lightfoot fabulously!
The following day we spent cruising through Glacier Bay, by this time I was on a roll.
When I arrived home, I had my scarf looking like this:
...and as you can see, finish it I did. As I was then, out that door to Stitches East 2011 minutes after this photo was taken.
