Crafting my pants off!

View Profile WWW available for personal swaps
« on: May 16, 2007 09:06:21 AM »

In one month I am traveling to France for 30 days. I will have a 14 hour flight there, plus a 5 hour train ride. I really want a crochet project that I can take with me for these long rides. I usually make amigurumi, but I've tried do it in the car all the fiddly little pieces fall off my lap and get lost.

I am trying to pack light, so i am thinking I might want only one or two projects that are relatively large, but also simple enough that I can do it on a plane/train and not lose my place every 5 minutes.

Also, I don't want to carry around 8 balls of yarn, so I think it needs to be relatively small too.

Does anyone have any idea.suggestions/patterns?

I find that I never do as much crafting or reading as I think I will while traveling. I end up sleeping or chatting with people. Just something to keep in mind!

As for patterns, maybe socks or lace? Crochet Me has a pattern for socks from sock weight yarn, http://www.crochetme.com/issue_1/socks_in_shoes.html. I haven't tried it, but it looks alright. They don't require much yarn, but it's so thin that it would take you awhile to work it up.

Personal swaps are fun!

Fun websites to give for free: thehungersite.com, freerice.com, care2.com

Wanted: Sock yarn scraps for a shawl.
