Yarn Along: Stockinette in the Car...


We went on a very long roadtrip this past week (from Thursday to Monday night) stopping in so many places along the way:  My husband's Baba's apartment for an overnight first (she's 93!), a little cave exploration adventure, my sister's home, a cider mill and Amish farm, my sister and brother-in-law's church/monastery and seminary for our nephew's baptism and Sunday's Divine Liturgy, a working historical farm, a women's monastery to venerate a myrrh streaming icon of the Mother of God, a state capital building, and an inner harbor (for lunch and wandering with the children while my husband worked), and finally home.  All along the way, this wee sweater was my companion.  I knit the most on the trip up to visit Baba...  the rest of the time was spent in wondrous amazement of the glorious autumn foliage in the area that we were traveling.  It was so thrilling to know that we were seeing such fleeting beauty in the north and would still get to see the autumn colors in our more southern area these next two or three weeks.

I read very little this past week, so I am still working on Lessons from Madame Chic. 
I only have three or four chapters left and recommend it.
