Wow. Back from the cruise. It was wonderful. Words fail me, and that doesn't happen often. We went to Nassau, the Bahamas; St. Thomas, U.S. V.I., and St. Martiin, Netherlands Antilles. Such an experience. This is something that I've wanted to do all my life, and it was every bit as delightful as I had hoped it would be.
And after all my agonizing over which project to take ... in the car, headed towards the airport in Buffalo. Took the Dulaan sweater. Finished the front. Cast off those stitches that needed to be cast off and placed the rest on a stitch holder. Ready to start the sleeves! Wrong. I forgot the necessary needles. Grrrr!
So now I'm back and will start working seriously on it. Hopefully, I can finish it this weekend.

The knitting for the Dulaan Project progresss. D.is helping by keeping our furry friends occupied.
In three days, C. and I will climb onto an airplane and fly to Miami. From there -- it's a Caribbean Cruise for us! Yippee! I'm debating which project(s) to take with me. The Dulaan sweater has gone cross-country skiing the last two weekends, and has progressed. The front is completed and the back is nearly so. It's a definite candidate.
Also under contemplation is the Faina's Scarf. I have discovered that there are indeed repeated rows. But it still is a complex project, requiring complete concentration. Consequently, it isn't such a good candidate for travel.
On the other hand, I could just take some sock yarn ... easy, fun to knit, and sure to elicit lots of commentary.
Decisions, decisions, decisions.
