Long Flight = Lots of Progress




The long flights to and from Boston were perfect for working on the Anemoi mitten, and now mitten one is almost done. If I had taken dpns for the thumb, it would be totally done--there was plenty of time on the six hour flight home. I was a little surprised how easy it was to set up my chart (on this great chart holder) and really focus on the pattern. No puppies bothering me, no periodic web surfing, television changing, or other distractions.












Here's a close up of the palm side:
It's odd that where the dark yarn stripes, it makes the pattern look completely different than the more solid parts.














Here's a bit of the inside--nice and even, this is the palm side.

Hi Carrie!

The more I see these, the more excited I get about making them. I just have to settle on yarn, such a challenge. (I'm also not convinced I'll use them, but I'm entranced by the swirls...)

I like the swirlies! They are oddly mesmerizing...

how did you manage to be allowed needles on the plane? I'Ve tried before and they wouldn't let me.

I'm in the US, and taking knitting needles hasn't been a problem for awhile. I tend to take circulars that aren't too pointy, and/or non-metal needles. I've heard of confiscations in other countries, but I haven't flown international for awhile so I don't know what the regs are in other places.
