I have some of the fondest memories of knitted items made while away on vacation. Do you have projects that remind you of where and when you made them? What happy memories they evoke. I just love that!
What’s on Kara’s needles this weekend?
Here’s a peek of me knitting on the beach. Do you remember this yarn? I was writing about this just a few weeks ago in this post, wonder what I should do with this delicious yarn.
I finally decided to create a wrap/neckerchief design, which I plan to feature in an upcoming issue of Creative Knitting. I won’t tell you which one, but I will be SO IMPRESSED if you point this out in a future issue. Let’s keep this a fun mystery for now!
And another fun find on the beach–yarn cutters. I was pretty desperate because I was working on another project made with Alpaca and I was stranded without a scissor. It’s amazing how resourceful us knitters are, isn’t it?
I got a little scrappy and started thinking: “Hmm…something sharp….ah, a shell.” Viola, nature’s yarn cutter! Pretty cool, huh?
When you go on vacation, what kinds of projects do you feel are the most travel-friendly? How do you make it easy to knit on-the-go?
