Beautiful Knitting

Where Mt.Mom knits, crochets, designs, and seeks Beauty as food for the soul.

Back from Texas Travelling

Posted by mtmom on August 21, 2009

I spent the past Thursday through Sunday in Texas, delivering my teen-genius son to Rice University {sniff} and visiting family and old friends.

We said goodbye to DH/DF and DDs/DSisters at the airport.  (DS is a great big brother!)hst_airport_kids

Check out her blog, “Purls Before Frogs”.

Then, in Houston, we met up with cousin Briana and her husband Alejandro and baby-coming-in-October Gabriel.hst_valencias

What did I knit on the journey?

I worked a little bit on The Sampler (mini-sweater) from Beth Brown-Reinsel’s book Knitting Ganseys.gansey_patt_band

But mostly I knit ’round-n-’round on this top-down cap in Noro Silver Thaw.silver_thaw_capAirport security had no problem with the 16″ plastic Bryspun circular.

    The whole trip sounds delightful. Isn’t it wonderful when people live rich long lives. I’ll have to remember about plastic circular needles if I have to fly. Thanks for another great tip.
