Tom and I headed Up North to our cottage for a quick fall weekend break. You know . . . get away, see the leaves, run a race, do some fishing. And while our weekend didn't quite turn out as planned (Ahem. Understatment. Car problems - mine. Doggy diarrhea - Jo-Jo. Grumpy man - Tom.), it was still good to have a little break (if not stressful on the way home).
I took my knitting.
And on Saturday, after the race, I settled in for a long, open afternoon of nothing but knitting.
I forgot to bring my instructions and - more importantly - my chart. So all I had was my bag full of yarn and my project.
Really. I was heartbroken. I had near-endless of hours of knitting time . . . in the middle of a lace section . . . with no chart.
And then . . . I thought of something!
I had my phone.
I had 4G service. (Very slow and spotty 4G service, but 4G service nonetheless.)
And the pattern (with chart!) was stored in my Ravelry library!
After a half hour (like I said: slow; spotty), I had logged on, downloaded, and saved the pattern to iBooks.
Back in business!
