From a knitter’s perspective, a vacation in the sunny south is more than lounging around a pool with the latest suspense novel or signing up for yoga classes on the beach at sunrise, its carefully planned one-on-one time with a few choice knitting projects that have been waiting in the queue. First there is the travel project, a simple scarf or mindless pair of socks for the long wait at the airport or watching the scenery go by from the car window. Then there is the destination project, an intricate lace shawl or a complex cabled pullover for that much-needed downtime in a tropical paradise. Packing the necessary knitting tools for travel requires creative use of compact space and detailed organization (have you ever tried to locate a substitute for a lost cable needle in a remote resort town?)
