Knitting @ 36,0000 Feet

I’m flying over New Mexico on my way home from San Antonio. The plane was three hours late but I didn’t mind. It gave me a chance to catch up on Rex’s sweater. I finished the back just now an I’m casting on for the front. I’m going to need some more yarn though. The double stockinette brioche pattern eats yarn like crazy! My hands seem to have gotten used to it. At first they were hurting, so I learned to hold the needles a little less tight.

This weekend was DH’s company Christmas party. A good time was had by all at Howl At The Moon. Especially one guy. He danced all night and was still dancing when we left at midnight! I wish I had that much energy!

I wasn’t able to knit on the sweater much this weekend so I was happy to sit at the gate plugged in to my knitting podcasts and knitting.

I can’t wait to get it done, not only because I’d like to give it to him for Christmas , but I have a design for fingerless mitts in my head that needs to get out. I’m thinking of knitting a mitt a month for 2013. Maybe I could publish an ebook. I think that would be fun! :)

I’m trying to write the pattern for the sweater as I go too, so look forward to that In the new year.

I forgot to say, how cool is this that I can post on my blog from 36,000 feet! Southwest WiFi is awesome!
