My darling husband and I are skipping town for a night or two, after my having been cooped up since Labor Day. We’re borrowing a cabin in the woods and I’m taking almost nothing but knitting and Nabokov. For the knitting part of that equation, I’ve chosen my old friend Acer, as you can see — will have at least six hours of car time with it. It’s too big at this point to haul on a plane trip, but it’s perfect for a road trip, as it offers me options. I can cast on the second arm and have only ribbing, then stockinette and the occasional increase to worry about. OR I can shape the shoulder cap on the first sleeve. OR! I can get back to the lace on the body, if I’ve really got some quiet time to sit and knit. So it satisfies all possible needs, wants and attention levels, which prevents my casting on something else. Because I want this done! So I can wear it, and so I can start one of the Brooklyn Tweed beauties I got to try on yesterday. (See Instagram for my favorites, if you haven’t already.)
All of which leads me to my latest Q for You: What’s the perfect travel knitting for you?
(And by the way, I added the Q for You tag to last Friday’s post about chart management. If you missed the whole discussion that ensued, check it out — great ideas and recommendations, unsurprisingly.)
