Knitting in Egypt
I returned from Egypt last night. I took my jacket with me, and I'm almost finished. When I left 10 days ago I was up to the stripes following the third gusset on the back. Now, I'm knitting the first ridge of the collar. Not bad! The only thing I did not enjoy about taking this along was that it's really hot in Egypt, and having a big wool jacket on my lap was a drag. Now that I'm back in Amman, I need this jacket. Tomorrow the high will be 54 (Fahrenheit). I think winter is nearly here.
All in all I've enjoyed this project. It's easy to work on. It doesn't go quickly or anything, but I appreciate that if I'm going to knit for 2 months solid that I have a project I can work on that doesn't require me watching each stitch I knit.
