The other day in my comments, Peter remarked that he thought my vacation knitting project would “have to be a lacy shawl or enormous tablecloth. They would be the only 2 things that would keep you occupied & still knitting by the end of the holiday.”
Another of my dark, dirty secrets:
I very rarely knit on vacation.
My last vacation was a cruise, and I took a sock-in-progress along. It was a 10-day cruise and I believe I knitted exactly four rounds. Total.
Though I do remember a vacation in Europe years ago when I went out and bought yarn and needles halfway through the trip because I was jonesing for some knitting! But as I recall, it was a month-long trip and that’s a long time to be without knitting!
I have to say, however, that there will no doubt be lots more knittin’ done during my upcoming trip to Toronto and points north.

I love Anna Knits.
Not only is it a great knitting blog, but Anna has this totally cool scrolling marquee of blog buttons in her sidebar. I left a comment in her tag-board about it the other day, and she very kindly documented how to make your own on her Fun Blog Stuff for You page. Check it out!

I started knitting things together! How cool is this?
And here it is with another diamond being knitted on:
As you can see, Lucy is just plain worn out with the excitement of it all.
