I’m going on a little trip for a few days. It will be lovely but, as so many times before, the usual question arises. What knitting shall I pack? Also as usual I might have exaggerated a little. It is Christmas soon and I have unrealistic hopes on what I have time to make in just five days. At first I planned on packing two hats, two pair of socks, a slipover and a pair of fingerless mitts. This might sound like a lot but I want it to be noted that the hats are on big needles and so are the mitts and one pair of socks is almost finished and all that is left on the slipover is half the front and that one is also on big needles. Then I made much more progress on the sock yesterday than I expected so there is so little left there is no point in bringing it. On top of that my packing didn’t allow for the slipver to come. Faced with these facts I decided not to make mitts on big needles but on small ones instead. That made for two hats, a pair of fingerless mitts and a pair of socks. In reality there is only the pair of socks that is going to slow me down notably but the new decision about the mitts will help to. The question is, is this enough? I think there might be a lot of knitting time ahead. There are plane rides and airport waitings and I also heard it might rain.

Maybe I need to add something else, an extra skein of sock yarn just in case?
