vacation knitting

Vacation is nearly upon us, and I am really ready to hit the road... errr, skies. But I'm not exactly thrilled to be flying, given the recent developments.

However, vacation means knitting. And I'm turning to my favorite yarn producer to keep me going throughout the trip. It's Morehouse Merino laceweight, in a quad skein, to make Melody's Shawl. Tens of thousands of knit stitches in the round. Really, a practically perfect travelling companion. There's basically no start or finish, so it's easy to pick up and go whenever there's a little time.

The scale isn't really evident in the picture. The skein is just huge. I could be working on this for a year. I'll start some new socks, too, of course. ;)
