We had a marvelous time in Las Vegas. I got a *lot* of work done on Kiri – both on the plane there and back, waiting in the airport, and also in the wee hours of the morning when I couldn’t sleep at the hotel.
I’ve been dithering about the cabled afghan, but when it came time to write up the directions for the Twining Trees, reversed, it suddenly clicked and it was ridiculously easy. I’m about 5 rows away from starting the second (upside down) set of the trees, which means I am also about 5 rows away from being three quarters of the way done! This is especially good since there is a sizable pile of yarn growing on the floor outside the regular yarn closet, which is all supposed to be converted to yet more afghans before Christmas, so the sooner I get this one out of the way, the sooner I can start the next.
Not much knitting content since I returned from Vegas, however. I’ve done a bit here and there, but alas, I finally broke down and installed Sid Mier’s Civilization III, which I’ve had since Christmas but have held off on installing for precisely this reason. So there’ve been a lot of late nights camped out in front of the computer, trying to take over the world (heh). And when I am in front of the computer, there is apparently an unspoken law (mandated by the feline population, that is) that I *must* have at least one cat in my lap (if not more) at all times. So knitting and playing just never can mix around here.
