Well it would appear that my business trip to China is going to pan out after all. So I'll be spending 4 nights in Shanghai and 2 nights on an airplane come October. No worries, my doctor has given me the green light on this one, so all will be well.

In light of this I've decided I'm going to frog the silk scarf after all. It is such a simple knit that it is perfect for whiling away the hours on an international flight while watching bad movies on a tiny TV screen. Plus, I kind of like the idea of knitting something silk en route to China. I will, of course, throw my other two projects in the bag too, as it's an awfully long flight.

I've got 1.5" left to go in the body of Grant's sweater, and then it's time to go back to black and cast on for the sleeves, huzzah! I'm a bit hesitant to work on the sleeves while I'm gone though, as I'd like to be able to have him try them on as I knit. It's going to get tricky after the sleeves are done though, as we still haven't decided on shoulder shaping or a neckline. I foresee more trial and error knitting and frogging in the future of this sweater.

As I was down to only Grant's sweater on my active needles I decided I'd earned the privilege of casting on a new project. So I broke down and bought some yarn from Knit Picks to make the Mommy Snug by Kate Gilbert (found in the Summer 06 Interweave Knits). I picked Cinnamon for the color because I like brown, but now that I'm knitting it I fear I'm going to look like a giant teddy bear. Oh well, at least I'll be warm and my belly won't be sticking out.

With any luck I'll be able to twist my dear photographer's arm this weekend and get some pictures up here of my FOs. Wish me luck!
