Packing up for San Diego

In a few hours, I'll be flying with the kids to San Diego to visit my family. Alas, at last minute, I found a summer camp for the boys. So I will hopefully have some free time to spend with my family.

This time I tried my best to pack my belongings ahead and if it wasn't because of these... I would not need to rush now.

oops, just dropped a necklace and broke a flower bead, the one in the right. Should be able to fix it later, will pack an extra flower bead. Yesterday , I just could not help to make some necklaces for my sisters. And I made one for myself as well ( the left one) . I used material from an old necklace I made years ago. That's a good thing about beads, you get to reuse the beads and everything is new and fresh again. I got so addicted with beads and I just can't wait to find a bead fair in the southern CA in July.

I didn't forget about knitting. I just took a little break, still knitting a row here and there. I started a new project, Iris. It's from an old Japanese magazine. So there is need for reshaping as the design has a boxy look. Will be my project for the airplane time. Using Cometa yarn from Mondial. I am enjoying to knit the cables though I don't often knit this kind of design with cotton yarn. Trying to diversify my knits' style for each season. :)

As part for the traveling kit, I could not get into an airplane without a nice magazine. Last week I found this Knit'n style Fall edition. So surprised to see this early bird in the bookstore shelf. I don't usually buy this title as the designs are not my favorite ones. Though this time, I need a magazine to relax, entertain and pass the time in the squeezed airplane seat. I was so good , did not even peek inside the magazine yet, it's still in it's sealed bag! ;)

So I wish you all a happy July and even it's kind hot to knit ( it's 34C- 93F around here), you still can dream for Fall knitting like I am going to do soon. I don't know if I'll be able to post but I may just surprise you.

I agree with you ... the said magazine's designs are always a bit out of touch with the fashion trend ... but sometimes they do have some nice sock patterns.
Have a nice trip!

Hope you have a nice, relaxing trip. I've been noticing some new fall stuff out there too, and it's hard concentrating on the summer stuff! ;-)

Have a fun trip! I'm amazed with your speed... I am still slowing getting through the back for my cabled cotton top. @_@

The amount of novelty yarn in that magazine when I first bought it is enough to make me not wanting to buy more.
Have a great trip, Mimi! Can't wait to see what you'll get ;D
