Knitting on the go again

Last weekend I went on a 40 mile lodge to lodge hike with my parents along the Rogue River in Oregon. I was carrying everything I needed for the hike on my back, so I was very conscience of weight and bulk. Of course though, I had to bring knitting.

The picture is of me and my dad.

So I brought 3 balls of comfy from my stash and tested some hand towel/kitchen towel designs I am considering.

I had the three balls, one fixed circular needle and a xerox copy of a feather and fan pattern all in a zip loc bag and it all weighed less than my zip loc bag that contained my toothbrush and mini deodorant.

The hike was great, a truly perfect weekend, and in the evenings after dinner I got quite a bit of knitting done. <
