Kid Seta - Lacy Infinity Cowl

 I love red.  Or at least reds with blue undertones.  We finally got a red that I really liked in Kid Seta (Ruby) and I couldn't resist playing with it.  Fortunately one ball of Kid Seta goes quite a ways (300 yards of Lace weight mohair) and it can be worked on big needles.
Anyone that has spent any time with me knows that when I travel I always have at least 1 or 2 projects (OK, sometimes more like 4-8, plus yarn to swatch) with me to work on.  Kid Seta has been in my knitting bag twice this year and I really appreciate how light the project is (and that I can easily carry it in my purse). 
So, I was knitting while on a flight (and getting hopeful that I would be able to finish the project) when somehow the yarn got wrapped around some guy's foot as he passed my seat. As quickly as I could, I extricated myself from my seat (with my needles and project still in my hand) and chased after him, yelling, "Excuse me sir, please stop..." and finally caught up with him to explain that my yarn was wrapped around his foot.  Fortunately the yarn did not break and I was able to finish the cowl.
