Yarn Along:: Road Trip Wips

From Small Things ~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?

We took a family road trips last weekend.  This meant lots of knitting time in the car and short bursts of it in many places along our way.  I knit by a pool, in a restaurant, in our hotel(s), and by the ocean.  This pile of green knitting you see is destined to be the Sweet Bunting cardigan. I’m knitting it out of Acadia, and I have to say it is lovely stuff.  It feels luxurious yet rustic with the bobs of silk that come along every so often.  Yes, I’m knitting another baby sweater out of really nice yarn.  Why not?

I also started a new book on the trip, Jamrach’s Menagerie.  It’s set in 19th century London and is told from the perspective of a young boy who first finds himself in the jaws of a tiger and then working for the man who deals in exotic animals.  I’m only in the first third of the book, and it’s already captured my interest and I’m curious to see where the adventure goes.

So what’s in your project basket and on your nightstand this week?

  1. Always nice to have some knitting on the road. Love the beach shot.
    Enjoy the book – that era in London sure makes an interesting setting.

  2. What a perfect little holiday. I knit everywhere too—always in the car for sure. Your green sweater is bound to be simply lovely!

  3. No vacation is complete without knitting and reading, is it? I am busy planning sock projects for my upcoming travels. Last night I started Look at Me by Jennifer Egan. Haven’t decided if I’m going to read the whole thing, though.
