TW and I decided to head off on our vacation to Seattle and the Northwest a day early, so I'll catch up on my posts after my return in about a week. I'm sure there is mass anticipation out there in blog land to learn what my trip knitting projects will be. I think I am being the soul of restraint by merely taking 2 pairs-worth of sock yarn - Socks that Rock Lightweight in Purple Rain (this colour might be discontinued) that will be come a pair of Cookie A's Monkey socks, but using January One's version with a picot hem top and shorter leg; and Knit Picks Gloss is Concord Grape for a pair of Fool's Rush socks by Too Much Wool.
Last year I took along enough sock yarn to properly shod an entire village and ended up not knitting a single stitch, much to my amazement. I know some out there have doubts that I will actually knit what I am bringing this time, but the thought of traveling without knitting within reach is such an appalling thought that I simple cannot do it.
So, I'm off to the wilds of Seattle, Crater Lake, Mt St Helens, and other environs - a full report when I return!
