One of my favorite things about beginning my knitting adventure a year ago was how it transformed traveling. No longer were airport waits, interminable subway rides or rainier-than-expected vacations a thing to be feared. With a project in hand, the longest delays are bearable – even fun! Here are a few photos of our staffs’ crafting on the go adventures.
A quintessential crafter’s suitcase: more yarn than clothes.
Knitting on my honeymoon with the Swiss Alps in the background = bliss
Warm lakeside knitting sessions by Lake Geneva in Switzerland. Not pictured: ice cream and dorky tourist sneakers.
You know how I mentioned “rainier-than-expected” vacations? That was 90% of our honeymoon in Switzerland. Thankfully, my husband loves knitting too, and didn’t mind many crafty afternoons curled up on the couch.
We visited Leavenworth, WA (a tiny, Bavarian-style town) during a snowy Christmas season, lodging in a beautiful, 100-yr old mansion. I still am not quite sure if it was all real or not …
Also remember those interminable subway rides I mentioned? Crocheting dishcloths kept me entertained during during my mass transit adventures in New Jersey to see my sister compete in the Special Olympics National Games. Bonus points for matching nails and skirt!
Stacey, our Outreach Director, knitting on a train ride to Salzburg, Austria. Can’t you just hear how the hills are alive with the sound of music?
Emily, catalog manager at our sister company Connecting Threads, making us all jealous with her beach side knitting.
From Hannah, our catalog director:
“We were traveling on the ferry up to the San Juan Islands and I was knitting a Windswept sweater by Tin Can Knits for my niece Ella in Swish DK! The trip was extra eventful because soon after our ferry collided with a fishing boat. Very exciting!”
What traveling adventures have you taken your fiber crafts on? We’d love to hear!
