When in Rome

Well, if you're at home for a sick day, you might as well make the most of it. I'll work tonight when E gets home, but between doctor appointments today, I finished up this little project--my first knitting project without dropped stitches!
This little thing took forever to make, but it was good to lose myself in something difficult. It's from a pattern in Knitting Little Luxuries. The stitch is herringbone. I knit the bulk of it when we were in San Diego, just after finding out my dad had a stroke on Christmas morning. So, the last purse was worked while my grandfather was dying, and this one while fretting over my father. Sometimes I think both things would have been a lot worse had my hands not been busy. You know?
