You know the last knitpicks catalog with the fuzzy green ribbed cardigan with a single button closure at the top?
I ordered the yarn for it and it just came - GORGEOUS!! Suri dream in Fern and Merino Style in Asparagus - held together. I can't wait to start!
BUT I won't be starting it for awhile. I'm on my way to Japan next week and am taking an easy Lion brand beret to knit on the plane, and a smallish baby blanket project that is 1/5th of the way done to knit there since we will be in a van going hither and thither every day for 3 weeks. Also I am taking an afghan project for my daughter, but will only knit it the 3 days I'm with her in California. I want her to see how long it takes to do just a little bit! HA! Since it is a request from her, in worsted wt yarn, I think the appreciation factor may go up if she sees.
I had thought of taking socks as a trip project, but I have yet to learn how to do the heel or toe. I got started on two at a time on 2 circs, but have not gotten as far as I had hoped before the trip. It's a bit too unweildy anyway, although 1 at a time on 2 smaller cirs would probably be just right. I imagine dpns on a trip would be awkward.
Warm fuzzies to my knitting sisters,
