So, as I frantically pack for tomorrow’s flight, something I have down to a science and that facilitates a week’s worth of clothes in two medium messenger bags, I realized two things.
- I’ve never once taken knitting on a trip.
- What kind of project do I take on a plane? It’s a short flight, but I am gone for 10 days… Two of which are dedicated to getting accustomed to the altitude.
So savvy knitters, what should I take?
My missus has cautioned me against taking anything delicate/that I would flip the fuck out if I lost or had damaged. This means that the Mood Scarf is staying home for sure.
I know better than to take lace work. I don’t think I’ll be able to focus and that stuff does NOT travel well – at least with me.
The Stitch Sampler Blanket is the easiest thing I’m working on but I’m weary because I don’t want to pack a bunch of squares on the trip back/ keep track of them while in the wilds of Denver.
But again, that might take a bit more focus than I have… Socks? I should take socks for sure, they’re compact and easy to travel with, but I DO NOT want to take the Mg socks and starting another pair seems a bit weird….
C’mon Maggs, this isn’t hard.
I know that, but after this week, I think I’ve used up all my bandwidth and so I turn to you awesome folk for advice 🙂 It’s last minute but hopefully I can come up with a nice list for future travels.
