i think i might be knitting a lakers jersey

That really says it all.

I was thinking that these two colors (sunset and hollyhock) would make a mighty kicky combo.  Turns out, the Lakers hit upon the same idea in 1967.

Ah well.  These stripes are highly addictive — so addictive, in fact, thatI’ve also started the yellow on yellow study (though the photos have yet to turn out).

Good airplane knitting as well.  I plan to keep going and embrace the wild color scheme, while listening to some form of detective fiction (yet to be determined), all the way to London.  Tomorrow I arrive and head straight to the library (!!).  That’s the best case scenario anyway … somehow, I have a feeling I’ll end up wandering a bit aimlessly, get lost, then collapse at the nearest cafe before until heading out to find my host’s apartment.

But I’m telling myself I’ll be working away at the library.  Now, I have to pack.

  1. this is the perfect antidote to all the grey we’ve got up here. wishing you safe travels, good cafes, happy knitting, and productive work in the archives!

  2. Definitely kicky. Makes me want to cast on for a stripe study right now.

    Have fun on your trip but try to get a little work done too. :)

  3. Hooray for cheerful colors! Wishing you all the best as you poke around the great libraries of Europe. London sounds heavenly just about now. :-)

  4. The colors are so fun–a good antidote to gray weather and being stuck in a plane. I can just imagine being wrapped in this would be like putting on sunshine. Safe travels!
