I just came back from a 10 day trip... Luckily i wasn't the one doing the driving (which is rare!). It was one of those "take a tour of the state" kind of trips so i knew that we'd have lots of time in the car in between destinations.
I decided to start a baby blanket project for a friend. It was nothing intricate, just lots of garter stitch and no fancy color changes... It was a GREAT project because i didn't have to think about it and could just knit the hours away. I even bought a little book light to clip onto my seat belt (a la my hero Silver!! ) so i could keep the driver awake at night! It turned out beautifully (if i say so, myself!) so i'm quite pleased.

A boy, eh? Fabulously cool, that is...
