Knitting is such a great hobby for holidays – perfectly portable and relaxing (hopefully!) I know many knitters spend longer planning the holiday knitting than packing their suitcase. My holiday knitting tip is to make a small start on all your projects, in case you haven’t already. It’s not pleasant to sit down to work on something only to find that you don’t like the fabric, the pattern, or you have the wrong needle etc. And always pack an extra skein of sock yarn, you know, for emergencies…! Here are a few projects that were all worked on during a holiday to give you some inspiration.
Shawls must be one of the most common holiday projects (I think I’ve knit Damson myself on two different trips…). This Damson was knit by Lilith of Old Maiden Aunt during a week-long stay in Paris, lucky lady!
Congratulations to our Glenmore KAL prize winners! If you're still working on your Glenmore this blog series will stay up, so you can refer back to the tutorial for any section as you knit at your own pace. For inspiration and motivation check out all the lovely Glenmore projects here.
