I’m about to embark on a 2 week vacation to Cape Cod and you know what that means, right?
I need vacation knitting. Vacation knitting will be in 3 categories this year:
The mindless will be socks, of course. I’m just about finished with my current pair so I’m going to peruse the stash for something beach-y or summer-y or just something that makes my knitter’s heart sing. Despite the fact that I never ever finish even one pair of socks while I’m away I will still bring an extra skein of sock yarn. I’m hopeful like that.
The necessary will be the Dryad scarf. I’m about 1/3 of the way through and, since I need to gift this when we return, I must finish it. It’s not boring but it is a bit of a slog. I think I will have to make myself work on it for a period of time each day. And then I will reward myself with something fun like spinning.
The challenging will be the Cactus Flower shawl. I am itching to get started on this as I’ve had my yarn from Kim for weeks. This will be a good one for when I’m up early in the morning and the house is quiet. A bit of coffee, a bit of knitting, a bit of paradise.
What do you like to knit when you’re on vacation?
