Okay, our plane doesn't actually leave for another six hours, but this will be my last post for a bit.
I found a great hank of yarn in my stash.
It's 100% spun silk in a metallic mauve boucle. The hank comes with a complimentary pattern for an easy garter stitch triangular shawl which I'm ditching in favour of a long rectangular open-work scarf. Should be easy-peasy and oh-so-satisfying on completion.
Though Winnipeg and Toronto airports permit knitting needles, Dublin's doesn't, so I won't be taking this on the plane. I don't fancy a shake-down from Irish customs to start off Elly's stay in the country. It's an overnight flight anyway. I'm bringing Joseph Campbell's "The Hero With a Thousand Faces". Not the lightest read in the library, but I think I've lingered too long with Lemony Snicket these last few years.
I'll try to post something from an internet cafe while I'm there, but can't give you any guarantees.
