Happy Thursday! I have some exciting news – this weekend I booked my flight to Russia! Can’t believe it’s been two years already since I last visited my family and I cannot wait to see everybody in 3 months! I will also be happy to take you along my favorite places and maybe some yarn shopping.
And of course I immediately started thinking about travel knitting. Though I am flying in summer, you can never trust Russian weather, so knitwear is a must! I am thinking of making a light loose sweater to travel in – I definitely need a touch of coziness for over 30 hours of travel. If you remember I finished a Gallery Sweater a couple of years ago, where I mixed Knit Picks baby alpaca/silk and merino to get enough yardage to make the sweater. I have more of these skeins in different shades and thought why not to repeat the experiment, changing the shaping a little bit. It will also give me excuse to clean the dust off my poor abandoned knitting machine – I wish I had more time to work on it regularly!!
Another project I am thinking to take with me is my The Edge sweater, but in classic grey shade! As I told you before, after finishing this design, I knew someday I will cast in on in grey too, I am just so curious to see how it will turn out in this neutral shade! Plus, I am so craving to come back to its squishy 3D cabling!
I wish I could take the needles in my carry on, but with all these new flight rules, I wouldn’t risk my favorite ADDI clicks. What about you? Do you associate travelling and knitting in some way?
