We waited all summer for our family vacation. We're off to Block Island! I've been planning my vacation knitting for quit a while. Inspired by all the sock knitting going on at Sandy's place, I decided to dive in and get this book, to go with this luscious skein of Shaeffer Yarns' "Anne". (I must compliment the Shaeffer Yarns folks on their generous 560 yards to a skein). My photo does not do justice to the soft blend of colors. Just click on the link to see all the beautiful choices. Mine is a perfect representation of Fall leaves. I was also pleased to see how dramatically the look changes from skein to wound ball. This is because the lengths of color are very short so you get such a great mix of color in a small section.
My bag also holds Summer Tweed, Kersti, and a few different gauges of sock yarn and needles from the stash, just in case. Oh, and Nancy Wiseman's Finishing Techniques, because I never go anywhere without it anymore. There will be knitting time in the car and on the ferry, and hopefully, during the week, in between bike riding, beach going and exploring.
Best to you all - see you in a week!
