When hubby and I travelled around Europe in an old Combie van in 2001,
I had not yet become a knitter.
He was designated driver and I was designated navigator.
No GPS or the like.
A good old fashioned map book and off we went.
Even without the distraction of crafting in the front passenger seat,
I will admit to a "few" uptight and I might say rather terse moments during those 7 months
when Mr Boozle had NFI where we were going
and neither did his navigator.
Who would have thought Lyon, France, could be such a pain in the butt to navigate?
This time around, Mr Boozle was again designated driver.
(Designated by me.
No way I was driving a 29 foot RV on the wrong side of hilly, windy roads
with 3 children in the back)
That left me to navigate.
Just me and the GPS from hell (but that is another story)
So I carefully chose a relatively mindless project for our recent RV holiday.
Just my favourite colours.
A simple repeating pattern.
No sharp needles with which to stab the driver in an impetuous moment of nagivation rage.
A crocheted blanket.
It filled in those driving hours and those quiet early morning hours.
(For some reason I was bright eyed and bushy tailed between 5 and 6 most mornings)
So I present...The evolution of My Very Excellent USA RV Adventure blanket.
(More on Rav here)
Las Vegas- Zion Canyon- Bryce Canyon- Capitol Reef- Canyonlands- Moab-Arches National Park- Mesa Verde- Canyon de Chelle- Petrified Forest National Park- Sedona- Grand Canyon National Park- Route 66- Las Vegas
I started the day that we picked up our RV
and finished the morning that we dropped it back.
The 4 hour car ride from Vegas to LA
was spent "therapeutically" darning in the ends.
Now if I can keep those sharp-clawed moggies away from it,
I have a blanket to keep me warm
and to remind me of an amazing holiday for years to come.
