(I was going to put web-links on all the names, but Miss McSpazziton was anxious to see what I've chosen, so I'm posting as is!!)
Thanks for all your comments and input on what knitting to take on vacation. I considered everyone's advice (which is a new thing for someone as headstrong and stubborn as me) and surprised myself by scrapping some of the stuff I thought I'd want to bring. And the winners are . . . . drumroll please . . . .
- Tempting - this will be my mindless project. I debated about bringing it because I was afraid I'd get confused on how to knit in the round. But thanks to the great instructional video link in Miss McSpazziton's comment I can't wait to give it a try. I had a few things I was cloudy on, but the video cleared that all right up. It looks downright easy and I'm confident I will have no problems. (I hear you screaming . . I know, I know . . . I've just jinxed myself!)
- Airy Scarf -This will be my challenging project, because sadly it is still quite challenging for me. It's not hard knitting - simple knit stitches and some k2togs and yo's - but the KSH is kicking my butt. I think it's harder because the yarn is so fine but it's knit on size 10 needles . . . or maybe I'm just KSH inept. Anyway, on at-sea-days we can sit in the sun and I can give it some good concentration
- Socks -You guys can totally take the credit for this one, because I wasn't even seriously considering bringing the socks. Again, socks are something I have yet to attempt. But so many of you voted for socks . . . even Kym who admitted she doesn't like to knit socks herself voted for them. And again, I watched the "turning the heel" and "knitting the gusset" videos in Miss McSpazziton's comment link and I think I can handle it.
Thanks again for all the great input!!
