Holiday preparations

What WiP to bring? At 4 am tomorrow morning we leave for the airport to fly to Sweden. I will disconnect with you all for about 3 weeks. I still take yarn orders in my Yarn Shop but they will not be processed until I come back. Visit my Yarn Shop for more information. I will occassionally check my Inbox but not very often so please don't be offended if I don't reply to any questions you might have. We will be without Internet connection most of the time so that is what it is... Cold turkey for me who are used to be constantly connected. H-E-L-P! Actually it is going to be wonderful. :D

Finally all the suitcases are packed it is only my holiday crochet project that needs to be organized... Hmmm. But which WiP should I bring with me?

The shawl is for a friend of my Mama, a woman who is a bit poorly. I don't know her but after hearing all the stories from my Mama I started on this shawl for her a while ago, to keep her warm on chilly summer evenings I thought. I think I will finish it soon if I bring it along now.

The pot holder can come with too as I want to write out the pattern for it. And I would love to make some more in different colors. And I need some. I am like the shoe maker who walks around in broken shoes... My pot holders are awful.

The Sweet Hearts are always fun to have on hand. Quick and easy to make and turn into garlands to give to friends that I visit. It is also a project I can share with Nelly Bo who loves to crochet them.

The Maybelle Squares are just WAITING to be joined together. I need some more squares for what I have in mind. A very convenient WiP to bring and incredibly fun. A lot of Tilda yarn fun!!!

The hanger covers I think will stay... I can finish them off when I get back. And then there is a stripy project in my head that I would like to try... Hmmm. And my hand piecing hexagons...

So many projects to choose from. I will keep my hands busy this holiday for sure.

And before I go - don't forget - on Thursday 18th of July
you can find me over at Clover & Violet's guest blogging.
Come visit!!!

Happy Summer everyone, see you when I get back in August.
