I think Iain did an admirable job traveling yesterday. We barely made our first flight and we were all very, very tired. We flew direct Halifax to Calgary and then onto Vancouver, without disembarking in Calgary. Then it was a short hop to Victoria, Vancouver Island.
Naturally, Iain developed a cough the day before we left. We gave him a wee bit of Infant Tylenol before landing in Calgary. He seemed to be in a bit of pain on descent but the medication kicked in and he was able to nurse and never did win the "Loudest Screeching Baby on an Aeroplane Award". He was in fine company with a ten month and sixteen month old also in the seats around us (they were excellent too). And, for those curious minds, Iain does not mind using aeroplane toilets one little bit.
As for the knitting, well, trying to entertain Iain and ourselves considering how little sleep we had had meant my knitting performance was mediocre to say the least. DH has challenged me to finish “ONE WIP THIS TRIP!” and win new project yarn! I have until o’dark early on Easter Sunday when we fly off into the blue yonder once more. Knit, Fibreholic, knit!
Here’s a progress shot on the one WIP that might make my challenge deadline. I wonder does it have to be fulled (made into felt) too…? Let’s just keep that part a secret between you and me, K? Although I did remember my zippered pillowcase, just in case…
Maggie, the cat, was helping me with my Booga bag photo shoot. She is one of my cat-in-laws. She is one discerning cat - that's 100% wool Noro Kureyon, Col. 166 that she's so interested in.
