Chilliwack, British Columbia, Canada
From where I am now that means a four hour car ride, 7 hours in two different planes (with an hour layover in between) and then another hour and a half in a car once I've landed. Then the same a week later, only backwards. What does this mean? I LOT of knitting time! The paper dolls sweater is looking like it'll be complete before I leave, so I'm thinking ahead now to what I should be casting on for the trip.
I realize socks are the classic choice, preferred for their portability and their non-fussiness. I even have a pair of socks on the needles, but I'm worried that two circulars will be awkward while traveling, that my knit picks needles may be confiscated (even though tsa.gov says they're fine...) and that the ribbing won't be interesting enough to keep me engaged and occupy my brain.
Here's a few options on the short list of possibilities.
