I’m off to a weekend away with 5 to 6 hour flight times and probably a good amount of down time to hang out. None of my current projects are good travel knitting; two are too close to being finished and Aidez is just big and bulky. That means it’s time for a new project, not too hard, but not to small, either.
Thus, some preparation has been going on right now.
That picture is way too dark. I’ll take better ones later.
I’ve been eyeing Breakwater long enough that I even bought two skeins of Dream in Color sometime last winter to knit it. Mostly stockinette stitch and all in one piece, so it will probably take me quite a long time to get to the fiddly portions, unlike in a pair of socks. Plus, it’ll be beautiful. The other projects are close enough to being done or fast enough that it’s okay to take a weekend break on them.
So today I knit a gauge swatch. Looks like it’s going to work! This doesn’t happen often enough to me lately. Hopefully at the end of the weekend I’ll have a decent amount of progress to report.
