Fortunately, I picked up a new sweater project, one with a brand new sail that has me barreling toward home. In less that a week, I've finished one sleeve and am sailing right along on up the back. It's heavenly, like being on the Chesapeake Bay on a warm, clear summer day.
Given this rhapsodic maritime description, I think I'll call this sweater the HMS Beagle. Alas, that name has already been taken by the ship that carted Charles Darwin to the Galapagos and a reworking of the entire world view. I'm not doing anything as earth-shattering on my little trip, but I like the association anyway; you see, I am making Norah Gaughan's Beagle.
