Road Trip!

It's summer! And that means we're looking ahead to hours of travel and leisure time and, of course, ample knitting time!

Looking for a project to take with you on the road? We've put together our Top 5 suggestions based on where you're headed and the length of your trip:

Day Trip to Grand Bend

Think you can't knit on the beach? Sure you can! We suggest something small that will stay off your lap and out of the sand, and plain enough to let you keep your eyes on the scenery.

Yarn: 1 skein of Cascade 220 Superwash Wave

  

Weekend at Turkey Point

Turkey Point Road Trip

A slightly longer trip - and maybe some better seating - means colourwork is totally do-able. Stick to two or three colours and a simple, repeating motif, and jazz up an otherwise plain hat.

Yarn: As a kit, or 4 skeins of Cascade 220 Sport

 

Camping at Killarney

Killarney Road Trip

If you're out in the wild, carrying everything on your back (or in your canoe), you need something small. You need something light-weight. You need something washable. You need socks.

Yarn: 1 ball of West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-Ply

  

Week In Muskoka

Muskoka Road Trip

If your dream holiday involves quality time with a big wooden chair on a dock, consider a light-weight pullover to keep you company. Keep it simple with seamless construction, and enjoy the meditative nature of stockinette when you're stuck somewhere on Highway 400. 

Pattern: Raindrops by Tin Can Kits
Yarn: 4-5 skeins of Mirasol Sulka Legato

 

Road Trip Out East

Bambara Road Trip

Go big or go home! Cape Breton is beautiful this time of year and so is a big lace shawl project. Fingering yarn packs lots of yardage into a car-sized bag and the project doubles as a lap blanket for evenings with a chilly ocean breeze.
