Too Much Yarn?

Is this too much yarn to take on a 7 day trip?

I’m going out of town for a week. This is a trip that will afford me plenty of knitting time waiting in airports, on airplanes, ferries, and in cars. One of the clear bags is backup yarn that will be going in my checked bag. The other will go in my carry on bag and contains two projects. You know, in case I finish one before I get to my destination.

While away, I plan on working on simple pieces like hats, neckwarmers, and fingerless gloves to build up an inventory for an upcoming craft fair I will be doing with Nutmeg Knitter. Since I will be selling my wares, it is important to me that the items I sell are original patterns representing my point of view. So along with all that yarn, I am not taking a single pattern or reference book. This is frightening and thrilling at the same time! I will be relying 100% on my own knowledge and creativity, hopefully being inspired by my surroundings and knitting up a storm.

The good news is, if I run out of yarn or project inspiration, there’s a yarn store or two where I’m going…

Have a great time knitting while I’m away!

  1. I don’t think that’s too much yarn! And keep in mind – even if you want to be knitting your own original designs – you can take along a stitch dictionary. I always find leafing through those to be very inspiring. Have a great trip!

  2. I think you should throw in another ball or two for good measure!

    Have a great trip. Alaska should be an amazing place to see. Take lots of pictures between stitches.

  3. You’re lucky you can knit on the plane! I have a trip in a week or two and have been told if I try to take knitting needles on the plane they WILL be confiscated!

  4. Are you sure you’ve got enough? Maybe you could squeeze just one more bag in there? Do you really need all those clothes? Really?? 😉
