Camping without a knitting project

Unbelievable, right?! πŸ˜†
Well there are a couple of reasons:
(1) camping with 2 boys under 2 makes it next to impossible to knit πŸ˜€ I’m not complaining. We are just so busy playing and exploring that there is hardly any time for anything else.
(2) Since I mostly knit gifts or items for my shop, I don’t want to get the yarn dirty or smelling like campfire. As much I love that smell, I don’t think it belongs on my knitting. After all, I do promise the items are made in a smoke-free environment. And that doesn’t only mean cigarette smoke. πŸ™‚
Here are a few pictures though of what my weekend looks like.

    • πŸ˜† well let me see if I can… No sorry there’s no reasonable explanation. πŸ˜€ You are right :))
      Now that we are staying the whole week, I think I need a trip to the local yarn shop ;))

  2. It reminds me of Elizabeth Zimmerman (The Elizabeth David of knitting) knitting on a canoeing holiday in ‘The knitter’s Almanac’. She also recommends learning to knit in the dark, for long car journeys!

    • What a great idea! I haven’t heard that before and it makes perfect sense. Otherwise what else do you do if you’re not the driver and it’s dark outside?!

  3. We here at WoolWorks never go anywhere without our knitting! Especially not camping…! But when the children were younger, the knitting usually stayed in it’s waterproof bag, untouched. By the time the boys were asleep it was always too dark to even attempt to knit!
