Well I’ve heard others say it but indeed I did it…. I packed my knitting projects that I want to knit while in Florida weeks ahead of packing my clothes. 😂 I know I’ve packed more than I can knit in 3 months but wanted to make sure I didn’t run out. I packed a whole carryon duffle bag with yarn projects.
I of course packed the “advent” sweater that I started in December. Unfortunately it took me all December to get my Christmas yarn socks knitted so I didn’t even get through the first ball of the “advent” sweater. Kim has gotten a good start on it so I need to focus to catch up with her. It is a simple knit so with her working and me not, I hope to catch up.
I also packed the shellseeker sweater that I want to knit for me. I’ve already knit this sweater for Sara. It also is not a complicated pattern so I’m hoping it knits up fast. That will be two sweaters in 3 months which is highly aggressive for me. But that’s not all …. I packed lots I fixation yarn to have a simple sock to knit during any social knitting I’m able to find. Plus the difficult argyl socks that are a carryover from 2019.
Plus I have enough yarn to make another pair of fingerless gloves. So way more yarn than I can possibly knit up in 3 months. Biggest issue will be focusing and possibly ergonomics issues. I already have some problems with my thumb getting or elbow getting sore. So I need to switch between Continental and English knitting, larger needles (sweaters) and smaller needles (socks/gloves) and learning to knit without looking at my knitting. Lots to learn and make while counting down the days in Florida.
