I am never sure how much to take on vacation. As a result, I pack either too much or too little.
The choice of suitcases is either the 22″ or the 26″ pull-toy. I did the two weeks of China with just the contents of the smaller suitcase. But this is a week longer (sort of) and I want to bring along sport clothes and will need at least one decent outfit. Add to that the changes of weather from here on the Continent to what it will be in Brazil and Argentina and I am kind of flailing.
The knitting was easier (grin): the three pairs of socks that are in progress ( I should easily be able to finish them), several hanks of sock yarn in case I want to knit more socks,
patterns to go with the above, the Kauni Cardigan so that it gets finished, and Mein Weg to start in case I really make progress.
As you can see, I decided to go lighter with the contrast yarn and pulled some Finnull out of stash. This was, of course, after I had made a run downtown and picked up some Roedel. But it is superwash and I just don’t think that they will work well together.
From what I can tell – out of 19 days – we will have less than 48 hours on land.
That is plenty of time to knit. Oh, and I have yet another baby sweater to knit. Peapod I think, and it a nice bright stripe!
In between the laundry and packing, I have been loading audio books onto my computer and portable drive so that I will have plenty of listening material. Jasper Fforde, Michael Connelly, Catherine Coulter (FBI Series), Perri O’Shaugnessy and Terry Prachett to name just a few.
I am planning on watching the sea, listening and knitting.
Enjoy the well-earned down time. 🙂
Have a lovely trip, sounds fabulous.
