4400 miles to go

Calgary to London is about 4400 miles. That is such a long way to send this bit of knitting, but, I sent it. Now lets hope it gets there in time. Go UPS Go. Go UPS Go.

I didn’t realize it would be so hard to photograph approximately 9 meters of knitting goodness. LOL … however, the pictures do give you a bit of an idea of its lonnnnnng snakey shape, and a bit of the wild colours I used. Most of it is knit with 2 strands of acrylic yarn held together on JUMBO 12.75mm (US size 17) knitting needles.

As you can surely guess this is my almost too late contribution to the Knitted Maze, in the UK. If you have a chance to see it, please do, and take your camera. Among other exciting things, there will be about a mile of knitting, formed into a maze.
