1. My current project: a baby vest I’m designing myself. I had so much success with my last baby vest, that I’m confident this will be a pretty straightforward knit. I do want to tweak a couple of things from the first pattern, but hopefully I won’t run into any difficulties or mathematical conundrums that will make it difficult to knit-on-the-go. This vest is going to be bright green, with a dark green turtle crawling across the front (see teeny-tiny sketch in the upper left of photo). It’s already, conveniently, cast onto my favorite traveling needles (short circulars).
2. My next project: Daisy Dachshund, from Mel Clark’s Knitting Everyday Finery. This project has many advantages: it’s only one color, it uses a needle size that I have handy, it’s cute, it’s small, and it’s a pattern written by someone else, which takes a lot of the stress out of a project. The main disadvantages are that I don’t have a great brown yarn (thus my Daisy will be pale blue) and I have no idea why or for whom I am knitting a Dachshund pencil case. (Because the pattern is not my own, I can’t/won’t sell it.) What should I do with it when it’s finished. Any suggestions?
And that’s it. I hope I finish even half of it.
What about you -any spring trips planned? What kinds of projects do you like to knit while traveling?
p.s. my t-shirt is finished and it turned out better than I could possibly have hoped! I can’t wait to share photos soon.
