  1. Good Question…. I’m currently working on my Camp #3 project – “Bees to Honey.” However I have 2 bigger, probably more important, projects to complete. 1: My stash and knit room HAS to get organized. Its out of hand. 2: I need to put together a “knit kit” for our cabin. I don’t want to keep hauling needles, yarn, notions etc…We are at our cabin 3x’s a month. It would be nice to have a small notions bag and 1 or 2 projects that can just be “cabin knits.” Easy items that don’t require too much concentration. I’m thinking a blanket, placemats & easy scarf/shawl. Any suggestions?

    1. I think having a Knit Kit there makes a lot of sense. One less thing to pack! And you want the projects to be easy so you don’t have to spend time trying to figure out where you left how. I love Martina Behm’s patterns, most of which are ones you can knit without a lot of thinking (making them great for knitting in groups, or picking up and continuing on them even if you haven’t worked on them in a few weeks. Also – extremely wearable.) Hitchhiker, Trillian, Nuvem – all are easy projects to have on hand. Lots of garter stitch. If you need something that is not all garter, then maybe That Nice Stitch Cowl/Scarf, or Multnomah, Ananke, Mizzle, or Favorite Scarf Ever.

  2. I am working on my Blackberry Boatneck sweater…Marly Bird just put it out on Ravelry for free!!!! Saw it at Fling IRL and loved it! I am using Socks that Rock Marine Silk. Gotta keep the ocean safari theme going!!!! 🙂
