The trip yielded zero finished objects but two projects on the needles and some glorious Tosh.
I am almost half-way done with a sweatervest for Eddie -- I started the project the day I flew out, casting on while riding the train and knitting through the ride. I worked on it early in the trip, while Eddie was in class and during the one-day overlap when Eddie was not in San Francisco, but I stopped knitting for the most part when Eddie and I had more time with each other...I'm okay with that :)
I also started Divisadero -- an eyelet cowl I'm designing that may or may not have fringe. Of course I'm using Tosh, in what I think is byzantine.

I knit the Kindle Cozy by Amanda Pacheco just before I left. I wasn't feeling in the round knitting, so this flat and seamed cozy fit the bill perfectly. The eyelets keep the project interesting to look at and work on. I used wool, which was not the best choice because of the fuzzies. I might remake this in cotton later, but I really love the vibrant orange.
I bound off too tightly so the cozy kind of cinches on the end. It doesn't bother me all that much, but it's a bummer because otherwise it's so cute. I sewed the buttons on so they'd face backwards; if I sewed the buttons on correctly, the front on the cozy would showcase my errors in the pattern and I'm not feeling that at all.
I started and finished this project in one day -- good thing kindles are so tiny.
