Now to the next important task: what to knit while in the car? After hearing Abby from Knit Knit Cafe talk about her love of the Wingspan shawl on a few recent podcast episodes, I couldn't resist and cast one on earlier this week. At first, I cast on with a skein of Lorna Laces in Stoplight Red but that was a huge mistake. The rayon content in the yarn gave the shawl too much drape and after completing two triangles (because I was stubborn and wouldn't admit failure), frogged the thing.
Being more mindful, I searched my stash again and found a more comparable yarn to what's called for in the pattern which is my Ball and Skein Sophia in the Gourd colorway.
I have a feeling that I'll easily finish this shawl before the road trip back home so I've got to come up with another project to take. Another pair of heroine socks? Another shawl? What's your favorite road trip knitting project?
