Heading off on Holiday.

One of the most delightful things ever to see is a pile of handknits. And its even better if they are handspun as well. Of my stack the top four are handspun, the middle two of those four were dyed by me. What is this pile you say?
Well, it is some of the knits I collected together for my trip.
Weather is such a fickle thing. And being in the Wild, surrounded by woods and water, one day you may need a light & airy shawl, the next you could be bundled up from toes to nose & braving a blizzard.
So into my trusty Thirty-one cinch sack these all went.
And while I can not say that I used all of them, I did use most.
When it comes to knits & weather I hold by, "Its always better to be safe then sorry".
What about you? Lots of knits or very few? Over-packer or under-packer? I'd love to hear from you!


  1. Hi Holly, I recognize that second one from the top. :) It has WA miles put into it.
    I used to way over pack and Chris way under pack. I think we are slowly meeting in the middle. :)

    1. Hi Amanda,
      Yes, indeed, that is the shawl I knit while visiting you. It has fond memories attached to it. :)

      I'm trying to work on the over-packing thing. But I always have grand visions of what I may need and I don't ever want to run out of projects. lol. So it is a balancing act at times. The only time I do really well is if I'm flying or just going on a day trip.

  2. Hi Holly! I don't know if you read my last blog update, but maybe you are aware that I have been hinting of a surprise on my blog? Well here it is! My blog, Fullness of Joy's 2nd Blog birthday this week, and in celebrating I am hosting a blog party to thank all my readers, celebrate those two years, have fun together with tags and also challenge each other to be more committed in challenging and uplifting one another as sisters in Christ and writers too through what we write and comment on in our blogs :D. I hope you can join; I'd love it if you can join in the tags:

    God bless, dear! Love you!
