Red knitted vest for childThe month in Paris has come to a close. Luckily the weather had turned warm for the last few days and I was able to do some Park Knitting in between my walks around the city. As lovely as it was I am so happy to be home. The house remodel project had a few improvements (the shower glass got installed) but things don’t really progress unless you’re there to, well, progress them.

During my last week in Paris I did another pass through of one of my favorite yarn shops Phildar and got some juicy red yarn for a second play vest for my grandson to wear at his other grandmother’s house (she had wanted a red one). It only took 4 days to make but I decided not to walk it over to their house and will mail it as a surprise.

Jet lag is chasing me so by next week I should be back to normal and maybe I will have the lace baby sweater finished. I put it away after getting lost on the chart on the sleeves which are knitted in the round on double pointed needles. The pattern cannot be followed exactly being in the round so I need to re chart it out for myself to make it work. I was afraid I would be bored on the 7 hour flight home so I started some socks. I’ll save the pictures for next week so you can see some of the best ones of Paris.

    Lovely! What made you decide to visit Paris? And did you stay in a hotel or an AirBnB place/

    I would love to go back to Paris and spend some serious time there, but coming home is a great feeling. I hope the renovations move along without too many hitches.
