Countdown to FUN!
Posted October 3, 2012on:
In a couple of days I’m hitting the road with a couple of my girlfriends and we’re heading out to the hill country. I cannot wait! I haven’t been out of town with them in a couple of years. Little Miss was still a very little miss the last time I went out of town for a “girls only” weekend.
In the meantime, I’m trying to figure out what yarn/projects to bring along. I recently started the echo flower shawl but that’s not exactly a “travel” project, as it requires my full attention.
So I think I’m going to wind up some yarn and cast on a hat/mitt duo for the trip.
I might even be a dutiful sister and wind up the yarn for my brother’s birthday/Christmas socks. I’m still hunting up a pattern for them, though. I’m not sure I can stomach another pair of plain, stockinette, size 12 socks. On the other hand, it’s perfect mindless knitting.
But, as a wise woman once told me “You’ll be on vacation. Knit what makes your heart sing.” and I believe my heart is singing for some mitts and a hat.
