I have been knitting along on my sweater and I was just a few rows from dividing the sleeves from the body, and I was a little frustrated that it wouldn't be happening on a drive day. It isn't something I can do while I am at a trunk show, and wasn't sure how I would find the time between shows to give it the time and focus I would need. I double checked the pattern. Made sure I was following the right part, repeat 33 times. Great. Checked my row count. Yup, I had 33 rows, and I went to sleep because dividing stitches isn't something you want to do when you are weary. As I was drifting off, I remembered my pattern repeat is two rows. I was in fact no where near being ready to divide for the sleeves.
I now have 42 rows completed, and we have 4 hours to drive. I think Logan will probably take the majority of the drive, so I have great hopes for today. Then tomorrow, when we are at Admit Ewe Knit, I will hopefully be able to knit along on the body.
Yesterday we finished our tour of Virginia, and I have to say, I love Virginia. It is fall here and the trees are just starting to turn. As we were driving into Roanoke yesterday, I snapped a few quick shots. I wish were going to be able to see the trees in all their glory, I have a feeling as we continue south, we will miss the fall colors. I also love how well the shop owners get along. In just about every shop we have been in, LYSOs from other shops have been there visiting and shopping. Telling us how excited they are for us to come to their shop. The camaraderie and community is a beautiful thing.
Want to see what we have been up to at the trunk shows?
We started our journey at Baa Baa Sheep. My friend Kimberly came by with her wee one and husband, I sized people for sweaters, and helped them find the perfect colors. The next day we were at Needle Lady which is on a fabulous pedestrian mall. Yesterday was Mosaic, our last stop in Virginia.
I'll be posting more pics on our Facebook page, so stay tuned!
