Whether you are going on vacation or taking advantage of all your town offers during a stay-cation, what to pack, I mean what knitting to pack is a big decision. It can't be too big, it must be able to fit in a handbag or tote. It can't be too small, that you finish it too quickly. The yarn choice is usually lightweight, not too woolly, most don't care to work on something providing additional warmth, since it is summer. Unless of course its nice and small. Knitting socks is always my answer.
So, as I begin a new sock project and thinking about what I will be taking to the Taste of Chicago. Of course water, perhaps an extra plastic fork and some napkins or paper towels, maybe even some of those moist towelettes and my traveling sock. Because of the traveling sock, long lines or waits never get the better of me.
Knitting on the traveling sock can make wait-time magically speed by especially in the airport, on the plane, the train, the bus and the car (provided you are not driving). In the doctors office, the 30 minute wait for a table, at Disney World, anywhere. Knitting socks areperfectly small and fits comfortably into a smallish handbag. And at the end of your journey or any wait, you are that much closer to a comfy pair of hand-knit socks.
Enjoy your travels..... whether they take you to far off places or down the block.
