1. I brought the wrong size needles- again. They are waaaay too big for this project & last time the needles were too small! Sheesh! I can’t win!
2. Not enough yarn for said project (so I guess having the wring needle size is a moot point)
3. No matter how easy the pattern looks under normal circumstances, once in vacation my brain will leave me & even doing garter stitch will be difficult.
Not to mention I’m on a “working” vacation in a place that’s hot as hell on a good summer day, so it looks like I’ll be reading the incredible fluff novels I brought! (I actually brought 4- I think my conscience knew knitting wasn’t going to happen 😉

I finished the Onerva Shawl yesterday! What a relief to have that done. It’s a fun pattern, only it requires a bit of concentration that I don’t have much of at the moment. I ended up making small edits to my charts & then as the repeats increased, I simply “read” the lace & took the stitch patterns from other lines. So in the end I had about 3 magnets showing me where I was on my chart. At that point I just wanted to finish the darn thing b/c I knew that if I didn’t pick it up until after moved, I’d spend more time figuring out what the bijeebers I was doing. But it’s done. Only need to block it & that can wait until after the move.
I’m now back to the minimalist cardigan. It didn’t get done in time for the trip. I brought it along to work on in Omaha & finished one sleeve. I rummaged around in my suitcase for the last skein of yarn & low & behold I managed to bring 4 skeins of sock yarn & 1 skein baby yarn (all for about 4 projects) but somehow I missed the green alpaca needed for the last sleeve! But it’s all good now & the last sleeve is currently being knitted. I would like to say I could finish it today, but I’m knee deep in all sorts of things that need to be done for the move.
Here are the charts! Let me know if you find any errors!
