Knitting on the Back Burner?

Six sleeps to go I told him when we face timed yesterday. Grandson knows I’m coming, the suitcase still needs to be packed but there is plenty of time to load the books, T shirts, toys and chocolate I’ve acquired to take across the pond to rural Ohio!

 

I’m even planning to knit on the plane – have bought wooden pointed needles specially and will be knitting the Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A Clark in Ella Rae Lace yarn.

Ever hopeful I am taking the pattern for Pole in case the Dream in Colour ordered from Webs arrives although it is on back order! So also taking some Phydeaux Chaussette sock yarn and a pattern from Cookie A just in case.

A lot of projects you say what about the back burner?

Well I am expecting to be rather busy with building creations out of Duplo, reading stories like Little Rabbit Foo Foo, Hairy Maclary and Slinky Malinky and COOKING.

In the suitcase I will also have Cadbury’s Mini Eggs and…..

for Easter Nests and

for Fairy cakes both for the children in his class.

So I might only be able to knit if he naps (unlikely) or when he goes to bed. The things we do for love – I can’t wait -and if the knitting has to be on the back burner for a few weeks so what!
