I have an idea of what camp will be like, but at the same time, no idea of what it will be like. I hear we play alot, like no-free-time alot, but then I’ve also heard that, la-di-da, you can do whatever you want.
So just in case I do have free time or I decide that I don’t want to play anymore, or can’t play anymore because I’m too lame, then I have prepared a couple of knitting projects to work on. I’d be quite happy to sit and listen to others play and knit away! But hopefully, it’ll be a nice balance of both.
So I’m bringing some socks to knit. Easy to throw in my flute bag and knit whenever I feel like it. I’ve had this yarn in my stash for a long time now and up till this week it didn’t know what it wanted to be. I was lost in Ravelry one day and came upon these Twinkleberry socks and fell in love with the pattern. It’s easy enough to memorize and has enough of a pattern to keep it interesting.
So while I was starting this up (I needed to check gauge and needle size before I took off….I didn’t think my hubby would appreciate an emergency call to bring out a different needle size to me), I thought this would look really pretty as a cowl.
I bought this yarn about a month ago. I fell in love with the colours and the soft alpaca, with the idea that it would be a cowl of some sort.
So this is great. Two projects, one pattern to remember. Now, about all that fluting….note to self: remember to pack the lip balm!
