By the time you read this, it will be decided, but up to this point, I've been lying in bed at night considering being away from my stash for 7+ weeks. I'm sure you can see my conundrum!
It's not like I will be even 50 feet away from an LYS, but I have so MUCH... Of course, I'll return with a bag full. (I'll have room if I leave behind clothing...)
Looking through my queue, and magazines, I'm overwhelmed. I've learned that on long flights, time flies (pun intended) when you are glued to an intricate chart--with headphones.
Situation #1: Travel duration (Trans-Atlantic flights and layovers) of 21 hours. Needs a complicated sock project. Check! I'll start my second sock for my only child.
Situation #2: Visiting almost one year old granddaughter. Not a lot of time, but there will be sleepless nights! Check!! My daughter has a headless Mr. Foster waiting for me:
Situation #3: Three weeks later, I might need another project. No check. Thoughts: Something from new Creative Knitting magazine. Nice summer tops in cotton DK. I happen to have some of that!
Situation #4: Travel for 4 hours by plane. Will the sock be finished? Probably not, but maybe!
Situation #5: Trans-Atlantic flight: 14 hours. During the "longest day" I'll need something to keep me occupied. New project:
Situation #6: Visit, 10 hour car ride (twice) and cruising the Maine coast...
Situation #7: Eight hours travel home.
Of course there are Ken-Ken's and magazines, and sleep, but I'm happiest if I'm... knitting.
PS: What didn't make the cut? The gray handbag, and the teal sock yarn. Created lots of space...
