What does a woman do when she already has about a dozen half-finished project, and she is about to head to a 10-day trip to her in-laws? Of course, she takes on new projects with her!
Unless it is a work trip, travelling is a great opportunity for knitting and crochet. All those hours in airports and on planes, in buses and trains. All those long chatting sessions at cafes, or around living room tables.
The only problem is, that to actually get things done, one has to do some proper pre-trip planning. And as you can imagine, there is plenty of other things that need to be taken care of before getting on that plane. So, I had a whole 10 minutes to come up with something, and drew up a quick plan of:
- Something that is travel-proof, including getting-through-airport-security-proof. That generally means crochet with a bamboo hook, something quick and easy.
Please note the curve of this crochet hook. This thing is such an experienced traveller it should have its own frequent flyer membership.
- Something that actually fills up my time, meaning more mental effort.
My excuse to starting two new projects? No new yarn was purchased for either of them, so it is kind of a stash-busting trip 😛
I’ll let you know how it all goes… 😉
