Say what you will about me, but you can never accuse me of being unprepared for *any* contingency:
And some back up socks, for when I finish those:
(Knitty’s Hedera and some Fortissima Socka)
Something even more mindless, but also less fun:
(Knitty’s Fetching and some Maxim Starlette–one of the free yarns from preschool, and destined to be gift mitts for our director)
A “winter, please don’t be over!” project:
(Knitty’s Cozy, and some Brown Sheep worsted)
And something I haven’t even cast on for yet:
That’s good ol’ Cascade 220 [color: Jet], destined to become a Claudia hat for Jeff (he picked out the pattern and yarn himself!)
But I can do myself one better. I also brought some knitting for which I haven’t even bought the yarn yet:
(Lace Capelet, from Rainy Day Goods)
And did I put it all in my super-nifty rolling knitting bag? Nooo, of course not! For I am telling myself that this weekend is all about packing *light*. And bringing a whole knitting bag wouldn’t be packing “light”, would it? No! (Hmm…though if I did bring it, I could fit in that mobius for Mom, and maybe the yarn and pattern for my next socks…)
Oh yeah, and I also fit in two cameras (plus some extra batteries, extra cards, y’know…), my notions bag, a few more pairs of needles, and all the regular stuff that goes in a girl’s bag.
Because I’m packing light, y’know.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, we’re leaving in 10 minutes and I’ve just spent more time packing my knitting than I did all our clothes and toiletries. Oops.
