So, What's on my needles?

I'm heading out on a vacation.    I won't be anywhere near a sewing machine and our cruise has a few sea days.   It took me days to find and choose just the right project to work on, just in case I have a little downtime.   It's pretty simple, yet has a lovely detail stitch.  It's lightweight yarn, so easy to bundle up..

It's a cowl called That Nice Stitch, and is available here on Ravelry.  It will be a narrow scarf with two loops around your neck.  It has the nicest look to it.   I'm knitting it out of sock yarn because I don't like anything to heavy around my neck.

I thought I'd better start the pattern in case I have a problem.   I'm glad, because I didn't remember how to do a provisional cast on, so a 2 minute video on youtube refreshed my memory.    Easy peasy.    I have  my cast on done, and two inches of the pattern knit now.   So it's easy to pick up and continue if I get the urge to knit..  It will be 48" when I'm done.

It's now all tucked in my little drawstring pouch.  I made a few of these little pouches last December and shared the free pattern here.

I'll report back in a few weeks when I'm back at the computer, as to how much down time I  had to knit.

I'll not be blogging in the meantime, unless I run into a quilt show or something while away!!
