We flew back in this afternoon and after 30 hours of travel I'm exhausted. But I want to blog about the trip now, while it's fresh in my mind. I'm going to break the trip into a few posts, based on the knitting I was doing at each stage of the trip.
On the way to the airport I cast on Brickless by Martina Behm for Elise, since we were going on holiday with her I thought it would be fun to knit for her. I was the perfect knit for the long flight, interesting enough to keep me excited, but not too hard to do when tired.
We spent the first week of the trip in Tel-Aviv. We rented an apartment with Elise, Nadia, Shoni (Elise's oldest brother) his girlfriend, her brother... it was so much fun. Raph and Rachey were staying with Elise's dad just up the road and we did Pesach with the extended family.
Unfortunately, four days after I cast this on I woke up with searing pain in my right wrist. The unmedical diagnoses was that it sounded like tendinitis. I have learnt some lessons and decided not to knit until it felt better... well, first I cast off Brickless. Actually, I had to cast it off twice, because I ran out of yarn.
This is the only photo I have of Elise wearing it. It's a bit different from the colours I usually knit for her, and I hope she gets a ton of wear from it.
