the wheels on the bus go round and round....

Inspired by this post awhile ago (who am I kidding, I am always inspired by Kelli), I decided to start taking the bus at least once a week. It probably more than doubles my commute time, but it's been pretty fun. I take my knitting with me, and it's fairly productive. Look what I got done today on the ride there and back!!

Please ignore the fuzziness. I don't like flash, and well, it was dark by the time I get back. That's almost a whole square for this blanket! I'm so excited. Can't wait to see how much I get done tomorrow.

That is one of the thing I truly miss about my life in DC...I used to get so much knitting done during my commutes!

That is a really nice stitch pattern! It can get pretty crowded on a NYC subway, so I leave my knitting at home.

Aren't you sweet? And would you know I haven't taken the bus yet once? I am awful. I am carpooling more, which is helpful.
Where did you find that pattern? I want to make a scarf out of that exact pattern. Can you help me?

Hm. I'm not very productive on the bus. I can only listen to my iPod...anything else will induce a headache. Same goes from the train, too. Oh well...at least I carpool to work.

I agree about commuting via bus taking longer than driving, but like you I find it to be much more productive. That blanket is amazing.

Go public Transit!

P.S. The turtle pumpkin is nuts!

Very cool! Can't say that my knitting has gotten to that level yet.
I tagged you btw... =)

Wow, this is looking great. You are one fast little knitting gal! I don't take the bus ever, but sometimes I carpool. I should do a bit more of that. Thanks for the reminder.
