All this and more need to go into bags to go into the car for our trip to Iowa.
But, I gave it the college try and it worked quite well. These are just the Christmas presents sans two. I am thinking Miss Mona Lisa has enough to open and may save two of the puzzles for her birthday in July, maybe.
Right now, I am trying to figure out if I should take the big knitting bag (on the right) or the smaller one on the left. The big one doesn't get to go to the shop too often, because on a Thursday night it can be a little cramped. But for a two day trip, you never know when you might need a bit more knitting!
I am making some great progress on Miss Mona Lisa's Lang Wrap Around Sweater. The fronts and back are all done and I have just cast on the little sleeves. I am hoping that when I get home on Saturday, that I will be able to start sewing this one up and call it completed. I am saving this one for Valentines Day (even though it isn't red) to go with a navy pair of ruffled pants and peachy top to go with.
It will be nice to get this one finished so I can start on a baby blanket that needs to be done by mid January for a baby shower. And I really want to be knitting for me again!
