Some people think I like to go to Vegas to visit my BIL and SIL (and their swimming pool).
Others think it’s to shop.
Or to see one of the “oldies” bands at The Cannery. (Really – this is one of the greatest entertainment bargains. And it doesn’t hurt that we get to see some of the shows free, courtesy of either my husband or BIL getting tickets “comped” by the casino.)
And all of those things are great, of course.
But maybe it’s really because of all of the great knitting time I get on the drive there and back.
This is the Basic Black cardigan, which I’m hopefully dubbing “Lucky Thirteen” – my 13th NaKniSweMoDo sweater of the year. It’s made from a superwash merino, which I knew would grow when washed. I knitted it with that in mind, going by the results of my gauge swatch. If I’d been home, I would have washed and dried the back piece before starting on the fronts – but since I didn’t have that opportunity (I knitted all of the back except the ribbing, the entire left front, and the ribbing of the right front on the trip), I’ll just be crossing my fingers that it works out. I tossed it into the washing machine, and now it’s laying out to dry.
Think good thoughts.
