Travel Knitting

We went to France for spring break so there hasn’t been too much knitting happening around here.

I carefully planned a project for the trip—the Pinkerton shawl from Interweave Knits Spring 2011. I bought a delicious skein of Hand Maiden Mini Maiden, 50% wool, 50% silk in Pewter.

I spent a long time examining the skeins in the store and chose the one with the most silvery light sections. After I started knitting I was disappointed to see the brown colours popping. I felt that the skeins with the darker purply sections probably would have been more satisfying for me.

Although I tend not to do much knitting while traveling, this is the perfect portable project. The knitting is simple and doesn’t require special attention to the instructions. Most of the knitting on this shawl happened upon our return. I have yet to block and photograph it properly.

I’ll have more travel photos to share too once they are organized.
