In packing the projects I'm taking on vacation with me, I may have gone a little crazy. I'm bringing at least three recent WIPs, as well as two new projects whose supplies I own, but haven't yet started.
Cue a mad dash to my yarn ball winder and swift, resulting in the above photo I posted on my Instagram. Pictured are two yarns I can't wait to work with:
- The turquoise is Madeline Tosh DK in the Oceana colorway, which will be used to knit up Messalina by Kay Jones of Bakery Bears fame
- The multi is Mrs. Crosby Carpet Bag in the Scarlet Ibis colorway. A delectable mix of Merino and silk, this single ply yarn will be used to knit the Zig Zag Scarf pattern that came in my April KnitCrate.
Speaking of KnitCrate, I have to say I'm a bit disappointed that as of this posting, my May KnitCrate hasn't yet shipped; I was hoping to take whatever it is with me to celebrate my vacation and hopefully stave off some LYS purchases. It's not that I don't have anything else to work on (obviously) and I more than definitely have enough yarn to tide me over until the end of time itself. But I look forward to getting it every month, and with the stress of wrapping up way too many work projects before jaunting off for a week, I could have used the distraction!
Also, I know there are going to be people reading this who are all like, "What? Knitting in the sand? Why?" No - beaches are for reading and sleeping on. There will be no knitting on the beach, mostly because I'm lazy, but also because I don't feel like picking sand out of my delicious Mrs. Crosby yarn.
PS: I hope all my fellow beer lovers are at least a LITTLE bit jealous that I'll be camping out - with yarn in tow - at Dogfish Head's brewpub on Rehoboth's main drag.
