Hitchhiker WIP

This is the sum total of an 11 hour flight.  It doesn’t look like much, but I really did work on it a lot during that long flight from AMS to SFO!

And even though it is totally mindless knitting, I’m actually loving the result and the colors keep me motivated to continue on as the rows get longer and longer.  When I decided to take this particular yarn with me on this trip, I really didn’t think about the time of year and the colors of the yarn, but now that it’s knit up a bit, it really looks like Easter! What a coincidence. Or my mind works harder than I think it does.  Anyway it won’t be finished in time to wear for Easter so I’ll just call it Spring colors.

It’s also really good practice for my change to continental style knitting. The combination of fingering weight yarn and 3mm needles is just perfect, no stress knitting.

As I said earlier, this is ONLY a flight/travel project so while I’m not at an airport or in a plane, I will be working on something else.  I might not get this done after all before I get home! We’ll see.  Two more flights to go…
