When packing for this trip, I went a little crazy. I just finished a big project, so I had to quickly figure out what to make next. I wound up bringing yarn and matching buttons for three hypothetical sweaters--one for myself and two for Lucy. More knitting than I would ever need, but it was so reassuring to have options.
owls, by Kate Davies. It will be very similar to the first sweater I ever knit, but I'm planning to steek it into a cardigan this time. My handspun owls is well on its way, with the ribbing for the body completed and an entire sleeve finished already. With all the traveling we have planned in the coming month, I hope to keep the momentum up. I've also been listening to Outlander, which is great for those long drives.
