A match made in heaven

Plane journeys and knitting are a match made in heaven. I had a couple of really long flights with the associated airport waits last week. I started Taygete at the airport when I began my trip. I finished it yesterday. The really boring part - the garter st section - was done at airports and while I was flying. I walked up and down on a long layover, people-watching and knitting.

I am really happy with the result. The colors are beautiful. The yarn is Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Pioneer and River. The River really brings out the colors in Pioneer.
Isn't that cool?
Pioneer never appealed to me till I put it next to River and now I love it.

There is the finished shawl as it might be worn. It is too warm here to model it right now.

I think it is back to the RLC after this. I don't have any other trips planned so I can finish it. I don't understand is why, no matter when I start a Bohus, I always end up with the sweater bulk in my lap in the summer time. I must really be bad at planning my Bohus knits.
