Vacation Projects

Later day, the husband and I are setting off on a short vacation. My main criteria for the destination was being not here, which meant that we had a lot of options. But, ultimately, given the short time we have to be away, my desire to sleep and eat well, and also a desire to go somewhere we sort of knew, we decided on Las Vegas. And, for some strange reason, perhaps it being the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on the United States, air fare was particularly cheap for today. So, our bags our packed, Baby Man’s baby sitter has arrived, and our passports are in hand.

Of course, I couldn’t go anywhere without a whole pile of projects. Here’s what I’m bring along:

Architecture Mitts (Aqueduct) from Knit Picks

I’ve cast on for the Architecture Mitts (Aqueduct variation) from Knit Picks, using Knit Picks Comfy Fingering yarn in colour Whisker. My contrasting colour, nestled in my project bag, will be Lilac Mist, a very light purple.

I’ve also cast on a pair of simple socks of my own devising, using a 6×2 rib. They should be perfect for working on when standing in the inevitable line-up waiting to get into a buffet. The yarn is Wendy Happy, a bamboo and nylon mix, in colourway Venus.

Las Vegas Socks

And, of course, I’m taking a cross stitching project: A Spirited Mandala by Ink Circles.

Here’s my “little” pile, ready to go. I made sure I’ve got wooden knitting needles, a very small supply of needles, and a tiny pair of scissors. Hopefully everything (including me!) will come through the flight today just fine.

Lots to do!
