I already know that my Peckish shawl for Knit Picks is coming with me on the plane, where I hope it will get finished. Then I'm planning to take a skein of handspun to knit Rainbow that butterfly hat, but I'm also thinking that perhaps I should take a skein of sock yarn just in case I finish the other projects or need a change of pace. A simple vanilla pair of socks would be easy because I wouldn't have to drag another pattern around with me, and I could do them in a skein of handspun for some extra fun. That's not overkill, right? It's a five-day trip, but there are two long plane rides in there -- and it is vacation, after all.

Tonight's task, after packing for the toddler, is to wind all the yarn I'll be taking. And as long as I have the swift and ball winder out, I might as well make good use of them, right? (Remind me to tell you sometime why it's such a big deal to get them out in the first place.) I might as well wind the additional skein of tosh dk that I bought last weekend to finish my Calligraphy Cardigan, and then there are the skeins of handspun that are waiting to go into my Goodale, which will be picked up again once my Calligraphy is finished.
There's still all the usual stuff to do before a trip -- clean out my purse and wallet, go to the bank, make sure I have all the important documents and personal stuff -- but I think I'll feel a lot better once the knitting situation is squared away.
I'll be taking my computer with us to check e-mail but likely not blogging until we get back, so see you on the flip side!
