Make n’ Tell Challenge: Day 6

It was a long day at the zoo, very crowded, but we had fun. And I knit, a lot. The drive there, walking around the zoo, and part of the drive back. I was hoping to finish the block before we got home but I had failed to take into account two things. First, it gets dark around 7:30 now. At least dark enough that it makes knitting really difficult. Second, it takes a really long time to knit a row with 40 bobbles in it (in near dark). Like about 58 minutes - for one row! So the last 8 rows were finished at home.

Checking the pattern

While taking a break a woman admired my work and said she had never seen anyone knit at the zoo before. Yes, I knit pretty much everywhere.

Admiring the bison

And later on from behind me I hear, "Look! She even knits while walking." And you thought people went to the zoo to see the animals...

The finished block

I'd say it was a day well spent.
