Make room for the yarn

This afternoon I'm heading up to cottage country with two girlfriends for the weekend. As y'all know, it's been a truly hectic past few months chez Dear, and I'm so, soooo looking forward to some "slow" time.

Obviously, knitting (and eating, wine-drinking, laughing and relaxing) is going to be a major theme of the weekend, so I packed my suitcase accordingly. Behold, what this Knitter considers to be an appropriate amount of "travel projects" for a 2-day trip:


That's the Bohus hat, yarn for the accompanying scarf (yet to be cast on), November's Hat Trix Club kit (yeah, I kinda fell off the wagon with those), yarn for my third and last bout of baby knitting, a skein of Shelter for swatching Kerrera, and a cake of sock yarn that I put in at the last minute - I kid you not - in case I run out of projects to work on. Before noon on Sunday. *Snort*

What do non-knitters pack for trips away, anyway?

Happy Knitting, Everyone!

Have a great trip. Yes, the world would come to an end if you ran out of yarn, so might as well play it on the safe side.

Have a great time! You deserve a break. Make sure there's lots of laughter, wine, rest and knitting!

Are you sure you packed enough knitting projects??? I'll try not to worry ;)

Well, if you didn't knit you could pack the Twilight series instead...

BTW, that is a totally reasonable amount of Variety. Much less, and you'd be sucked into a yarn store.

I hope you had a nice weekend away!
I packed a ton of sewing for my break this weekend but also some knitting- but it never got pulled out- lol! Too much stitching!

Hope you had a great trip. Was that to one of the girls in Laval Knits cottage that you were telling me about? I wish I could get away on a weekend like that! Did you actually work on some projects or did it get left in the suitcase?

LOL! The last vacation I took saw me packing a dozen projects and as many books...for a week of visiting with two other couples when I knew I'd have NO time to touch any of it.

I hope your trip was great!
