I always try and keep a simple stocking st project on the needles that I can carry around and pick up when I’m not able to give knitting my full attention. Here’s my current one, can you tell it’s been crumpled up in my bag?

A provisional cast on that will eventually be replaced by a sideways knit lace border.

And here’s a very rough sketch of what I’m making. Inspired (although it might not be obvious from the end result) by vintage slips in Carnivale.
