The other day, we were talking about vacation knitting. It really is one of the most delicious challenges. Excruciating choices have to be made. The paring down of possibilities. The decisions, oh crikey how can I ever choose what to bring?
I’m feeling pretty good about my game plan for my family trip. Keep it simple. Single-skeiners. Some skinny little Spincycle Dyed in the Wool skeins will keep me guessing about how my hats are going to turn out.
I am not actually taking all these skeins. But maybe I should? What if I end up stranded someplace with only three skeins of Spincycle Dyed in the Wool? What if I . . . run out?
And of course, I’m bringing the stalwart companion for pretty much any trip: socks. I got lost in our selection of Neighborhood Fiber Co. as I dreamydreamed about my vacation plans, and I landed upon a trio of Karida’s colors that just look like a set.
This is Organic Studio Sock in Logan Circle, Belair, and my ultrafave, the bright blue of Canton. But what about the other eight colors of Organic Studio Sock? What if I suddenly become allergic to green?
It’s no coincidence that our sock-knitting Field Guide No. 11 is called Wanderlust. I’ve got it bad, and I’m glad that these three skeins are going to be along for the ride with me.
I don’t expect to knit six socks and five hats on my trip, but you never know.
PS We had such a great time last week doing a couple of vendor sessions at Virtual Knitting Live. Thanks to everybody who came by to hang out and hear the latest news. How are you all feeling about Zoom these days? I know a lot of people have Zoom fatigue, but I’m grateful for the chance to see folks near and far via Zoom.
