You would do the same. You know you would.

I am leaving tomorrow for a two-day conference that is a 5-hour car ride away.

I am taking three (3) knitting projects.

What? You wouldn’t take that many? Don’t be silly; of course you would.

I’ve got the yarn all ready with the required needles (and an alternate size needle, just in case).

I’ve got the patterns all printed out, along with the extra tutorials that a couple of them need. (I also have all that downloaded onto my iPad and my phone, just in case.)


Here’s the line-up.

First, we have the Madison scarf, a free pattern on Ravelry. I will make it from this yarn, Schachenmayr Select Tahiti in the romantically named colorway 07616.


Then there is the Strandwanderer scarf, to be made from a skein of Rohrspatz & Wollmeise Pure 100% Merino in Sultan. I mean, what else could I possibly make from that skein?

Last, we have the Talmadge cloche, Mason Dixon Knitting’s June project in their Year of Techniques, to be knit in Dream in Color’s Everlasting in the Passion colorway.



I am all set!

    I think this makes perfect sense – your mood and level of concentration will be different in each day. And I love the bag you have them in!

    I agree with Kat. I think you’re one project light, here. Hopefully there’s a yarn shop near the venue…

  6. Happy You won Kim’s contest. Her prizes are amazing. Yes you sound packed, ready to go and ready to love the knitting

    For me, two knitting projects, three sketch pads and one serious text. And I will abandon all of them to stare at the tv.
    Which is why you get so much more done than I do.
