The Kiri Shawl was left behind in the interest of saving space. I did, however, take the Nutkin socks. I cast on while waiting to leave the US. I got through several repeats on the cuff. I like how the pattern looks. Not quite as fond of the sock color, but perhaps it will grow on me as I knit it. If not, I can always give them away.
While in Tbilisi, I was showed a gallery with some really creative felt projects. Wallhangings, hats, lamp shades. Unfortunately the gallery was closed at the time we went past. I'll definitely need to get there again when it is open. I'd love to see what sort of textile and fiber arts are being produced in the country. What little bits I could see were intriguing.
