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.
