So I hate flying. Like with a passion.
My favorite line from Titanic is:
"But this ship can't sink!""She is made of iron, sir. I assure you, she can."
That is what I think about every time I fly.
"But the plane can't crash!"
"It is a steal tube 30,000 feet in the air. I assure you, it can."
It probably doesn't help that I could see the Sully plane floating down the Hudson River from my office window. I'm not sure what I would have done had I actually seen it crash.
Anyway, back to knitting. So I flew to and from Minnesota this past weekend, and the only thing that kept me from escaping via an inflatable slide was my latest project.
Veronik Avery's "Lace Ribbon Scarf".
I had bookmarked this pattern ages ago, and was recently "raveling" those bookmarks and came across it. The lace pattern is tricky but very repetitive, so once I did a few rows I was able to remember it and take the project "on the road". This will be this year's "Red Scarf", for the Orphan Foundation of America. I'm actually going to host a party for all my knitter friends to encourage them to start and/or finish their Red Scarves.
