Yarn Bag // Road Trip Edition.


 The family and I are preparing for a road trip! How exciting?! We are heading up to Minnesota for an extended weekend vacation and I'm so excited to get some relaxing family time in! Of course, a road trip means a lot of time sitting with absolutely nothing to do but jam to some tunes and crochet my little heart out. I've been preparing my yarn bag for the trip more thoroughly than my wardrobe, it's so hard to only commit to a few projects! I've finally settled on my choices, I hope they keep me occupied!
I'm bringing along a few different balls of yarn, two for knitting and two for crochet projects. I've got a few more in my travel stash but I'm most excited about the future of these balls right here. I made sure to bring a long my basic project essentials; scissors, stitch markers, needles, hooks, and packed my glasses because I'm really having a hard time with my vision. I made sure that I brought my new sketch book just in case anything inspires me to do a little doodling and of course multiple cameras for capturing every special moment.
And yes, that is last springs Vogue, I only reread the Lady Gaga issues about a thousand times.

What are some of your road trip essentials? Do you like to crochet or craft on the go?

  2. I can't read or crochet in the car because of motion sickness, so to combat boredom I crank up the 1990's tunes and jam out. I get silly looks, but whatevessss....

  8. Thank you for the candy-colored inspiration! My fiance's aunt is expecting and new baby boy July, and I've waited far too long to start a baby blanket for him. After all my winter knitting, I just couldn't find my knitting mojo. But you've cured me with these lovely and tempting pictures. :)
