Knitting on the Bus

My sister's getting married at the end of the week, so I'm spending this week visiting my family in Ithaca, NY (everyone except the sister that's actually getting married, who's at her house in a flurry of last minute wedding stuff, poor thing). Kevin couldn't come because he's at a conference for work, and then teaching his class, so I decided to take the bus to Ithaca, drive to the wedding with my parents and sister, then take the train home.

So yesterday was bus day, which meant lots of knitting on Hanami, and the sweater for Schaefer Yarns.


I think this is five repeats' worth of shawl. It seems like it's going to be a little short, so I may do an extra repeat or two in each half.

To got to Ithaca, you first have to go to in NYC, then back out. It wasn't till I was boarding the first bus that I realized I could have also taken the train in, which might have given me more choices about when to leave--although there aren't that many buses (and no trains) to this part of the state, so maybe it wouldn't have made any difference.

In addition to getting to hang out with my family, I'm also finally getting to see all my mom's knitting in person. She's making a gigantic afghan, as well as an entrelac scarf. And she's signed up for two sock classes in the next few weeks (one "regular" and one magic loop--they make little sample socks, not full size ones), and a moebius class, using one of Cat Bordhi's Magical Knitting books.

Have a wonderful weekend with your family!

It is very hard to get around without a car, once you leave the city. I had some friends visit from out of the country and even the Amtrak wasn't convenient between stops. It is good for lots of knitting time.x
