Lately, I’ve been blogging a lot about travel knitting and travel spinning for our upcoming trip to France. After viewing a long string of such posts on Instagram, my sister commented:
I would like to see a picture of everything you’re bringing in your suitcase. I have a feeling it’s very different than what I bring when traveling.
Too true. Too true. Although I want to assure you, my suitcase is not half full of fiber and yarn. Really, it’s not. I dream of such things, but I know it would be a pretty silly thing to do.
On our trip, my husband and I are each taking one bag that looks something like this. It’s a backpack with a zip-off day pack. It has some pretty serious capacity, but it’s nowhere near the size of some of my roller suitcases.
The day pack is where my knitting and spinning projects live. See that cute little monster bag. That’s it. Well, almost.
I’m taking two projects. One pair of colorwork mittens. And one travel drop spindle with fiber. The bag contains:
Approximately 150 yds of two different sock weight yarns, wound into center-pull balls.
