One of the many wonderful things about knitting is how portable it is! You can do it in the car (not while driving, I hope), in a plane, on a train, in a boat, near a moat, at the bank, while talking to Frank – well, you get the picture. But, let’s face it, some projects are more portable than others.
And thus, as my hubster and I readied for the annual take Mom to the airport journey, I stood in the darkened living room, sunrise not yet even a consideration, and wondered aloud what project I should take with me – it is at least a four hour round trip from Ely, Cambridgeshire to Heathrow Airport, London. Four hours of prime knitting time, especially since I got my knitting headlight. (Thank you, Aunt Lynn!)
I wanted plain knitting; I am not a morning person and can’t handle complex knitting before sunrise. So, I decided to bring my spiralling circle of knitting goodness, otherwise known as my future rug. It’s knit in one long strip that is later (and I am so not looking forward to this part) seamed in a spiral.
But, how to get make this mass of knitting portable? Well, where there’s a will, there’s a way.
In the end it took two messenger bags and I rode with my knees under my jaw, but it was worth it. 😉
