The Secrets of Mary Bowser is my book this week, the story of a free slave who spys for the Union during the Civil War (or the War of Northern Aggression as it's referred to in my neck of the woods). Just started it, but it's caught me already.
I finished the kusha-kusha scarf, an extremely easy knit, but one I know I'll wear A LOT; half is stockinette stitch holding a cobweb wt merino with stainless steel--the other halfcontinues in stockinette with just the stainless steel. It's drapey, yet the stainless allows you to crinkle and shape it a bit. It's long, it's light--it's pretty perfect and was a wonderful vacation mindless knit.
Beach Affection will be done tomorrow. How can I be so darn sure about that? I'm a captive audience once again on a 10 hour car trip. I'm absolutely, positively, 100% sure I can knit 2" in 10 hours. (Pretty sure I can knit it in 5 hours if I have to take a turn driving!!!!)
