When I went to Vienna on the weekend, I packed my yarn and needles to have something to do on the flight. And when we went to London last fall, I took my big needles with me too for doing knit-felted slippers. Both times I even had to open my hand luggage because I was carrying needles and they were a bit confused on what they saw on their screen when monitoring my luggage.
Even when I went to the Netherlands on my bike tour I took some needles and some yarn to keep me occupied during the train travel. I sat in the train with luggage and bike and was knitting.
Knitting is meditation. It is keep hands and mind occupied. It is really producing something. And I even sell some of my stuff at Dawanda.
Today I’m again joining Ginny’s Yarn along. This week I started with another pair of knee high socks which get a braided pattern on the sides, worked a bit more on Michael’s sweater vest, finished another pair of knit-felted ankle high slippers and started reading “Love in Exile. An Amercian Writer’s Memoir of Life in Divided Berlin”.
If you want to know how to do the slippers you’ll find a tutorial as a guest post at Marigold’s Loft and there is even a give away! And please don’t forget to check out her guest post here at my blog too!
