Travel knitting

"I'm leavin' on a jet plane...." Yep, tomorrow we are taking a trip. After flying to Kansas City, MO, we will rent a car and drive to Holyrood, KS to see my 97-year-old grandmother, then drive back to Joplin, MO for the first ever McMillen family reunion, then fly home again from Kansas City on Monday. All that flying and driving should give me plenty of knitting time (hurray!), so this is what I have lined up:
Two-at-a-time-on-Magic-Loop wristwarmers out of the rest of Brian's Encore sock yarn.

Black mohair moebius shawl (Christmas gift).

A gift project that shall remain a surprise.

If I get to them, two-at-a-time toe-up socks on Magic Loop from this lovely heathery green wool/acrylic. I had this cone in my stash, and realized when sock fever hit me that it should make dandy footwear. I've wound up two 58-gram balls of it to take with me.

That's it for now from . . .

Funny. I was just thinking today that I'd like to add learning to knit toe-up socks, two at a time, to my list of retirement thingg. I'd like to see if I can't use up some of the many partial balls.

Back in the sixties we lived in Miami, Okla. as newlyweds from Ohio. He was a Chemist for Goodrich. We weren't far from Joplin, Mo. and would drive there for a wonderful catfish supper.
Enjoy the Reunion and the hugs!
