  • Favorite car travel project: dishcloths. Airplanes are easy compared to cars!
    I firmed up my knitting skills on a car trip to the Gaspe peninsula a few years ago and came away with a lot of them. The scarf I was working on for my husband at the same time was my out of the car travel project – miles of broken rib, in alpaca too slippery for a beginner to handle while the car was moving. Actually, even when it wasn’t, but you can’t really tell . . .

  • Hi! For travel, I love to begin (so it starts out small) a new shawl – and something simple so I can look around while I knit. My favorite thing about vacation is knitting, since I always seem to get a lot of it done and it is a little discrete period when I can try to complete the project before I come home. I also love road trips – I get a lot of knitting done on those! xo!

  • I prefer plain knitting on circulars for travel. A shawl or socks are great.

  • Socks! If I am going for a long visit to family, I’ll pack something big and tricky for all the hours I am enjoying someone else’s house and not needing to tend to mine.

  • My favorite travel knitting is socks. Always in demand by my family, not my favorite knitting but good for travel, small and portable, and done with magic loop so no double poInts to drop. Love your daily newsletter and Snippets.

  • I’ll take anything along with me but my favorite is something portable like a scarf or cowl. This is my favorite design from the new field guide!

  • Favorite travel knits is a small item on a circular needle. You are never in the lurch, having lost one needle.

  • Socks are my go to project for travel knitting.

  • I can’t travel without knitting! Lately, all the young couples I know are reproducing, so I usually knit baby sweaters on the road.

  • I’ve usually got a plain vanilla sock with self-striping yarn in my travel gear. Easy to pack, easy and relaxing to knit.

  • I like to knit a basic stockinette seamed sweater while traveling. I’ve knit so many versions of the same pattern that shaping the armholes and neckline during an 8 hour car ride isn’t that bad

  • My favorite portable projects are socks, but I’ll take anything small enough and not too complicated. Usually, I travel with at least three different projects! Got to have choices, right?!

  • My favorite travel knitting project is anything on circular needles (that way I never lose a needle)

  • My favorite travel knit is socks with a simple pattern

  • Socks, of course!

  • Sometimes whatever project I’m knitting and sometimes something small that requires not much thinking.

  • My favorite travel project is socks.

    • You have made a ton of those!!!! HA! Now if either you or I win it’ll feel like winning

  • My go to travel knitting projects are socks or hats, but I’ve also been known to drag along a half finished sweater to get it done.

  • I travel with whichever project fits easily in my bag! Could be a hat. Could be a shawl. Could be a sleeve. Could be a start to a bigger WIP.

  • I travel all the time, as an opera director. My favorite project “on the road,” is always a shawl. From your last guide, Sequences, I adored your shawl pattern. Now, I’d love to try this one! Not only are shawls portable to knit, they snug me happily in cold theatres. Thank you MDK!

  • Socks and a small shawl in case of emergency (I’ve finished the socks)

  • When travelling by car, my favourite knitting is an aran sweater. By plane or train, I prefer to knit a simpler shawl or mittens.

  • I like socks or a small shawl for travel. Shawls have fewer needles so that often wins as I pack.

  • Blanket squares!

  • My favorite travel projects lately have been baby sweaters or hats and cowls. They fit in a cosmetic bag and aren’t too fussy. I had been carrying a sock project in the car, but inevitable one of my needles would make a break for it somewhere along the way and end up AWOL.

  • My project(s) of choice depend on my mode of transportation. Multiple small or one large if flying. Sky is the limit if driving.

  • I like to travel with dish cloth knitting

  • Airplane scarf! Or anything I might have about that’s small

  • My favorite travel knitting is usually a sock because I can fit it in my purse. But for longer trips, well, whatever I can fit in my suitcase. Preferably a variety of projects.

  • Socks of course! Especially mini-socks using remnants to make an advent calendar. Like dishcloths, one doesn’t need a pattern if they’ve already made a few basic socks.

  • Socks are my traveling knit project.

  • Anything mindless, with a bazillion stitches!

  • I have been knitting travel mug cozies. I put them to use quickly with all the coffee I drink.

  • Teddy bears. I knit them for charity, and I know the pattern by heart.

  • Depending upon the length of the trip – socks for short trips and something that doesn’t have a chart with 2 sided lace for longer trips! Actually packing along my Deschain Tee and Kaleide pullover for our upcoming sabbatical that begins this weekend. A bientot

  • Never leave home without my knitting. Socks and a shawl/cowl. Thanks for hoping to win this gorgeous shawl

  • Fingering weight shawl with a simple lace pattern. Preferably not all garter stitch.

  • My favorite travel knit is probably socks..no- wait- a simple shawl I can’t screw up.. no- Probably a hat…yeah- that’s it!

  • Travel knitting? Usually a stockinette shawl of some type.

  • I don’t have a favorite travel project, just whatever I am working on is what goes with me.

  • I usually choose to start a one-colour shawl on a circular needle. Linen yarns are so interesting.
    Thanks for the amazing contest!

  • Vanilla socks with a colorful yarn is often my traveling project but I do have to be careful not to lose one of the double pointed needles. Maybe that is why I am always buying more DPs! A simple shawl is another great traveling project.

  • My favorite travel knits are either garter stitch shawl or socks. Preferably both.

  • Always a pair of socks, unless I have another project that is small and easy.

  • I travel with a baby hat on my circular needles or a cotton yarn on straight needles to knit a washcloth for my charity knitting group donation.

  • Usually shawls, compact & one that is a simple repeat pattern.

  • I love to travel with whatever WIP I have laying around. Since I typically have about 6 I can always guarantee I have something 🙂

  • Socks are the ultimate portable project. And who doesn’t need another pair?

  • I love to take a 1 (or 2) row pattern & some yummy yarn to make a scarf. I always have one in my to go bag, and also take it to medical appointments for those long waiting room delays.

  • My favourite would be the Albers Shawl if I won the kit!!! Seems a perfect, lightweight and gorgeous project to take anywhere! ❤️ But if I didn’t have that, then I’d have a different shawl. Thanks. 🙂

  • My “carry it around in case you have to wait” travel project is a sock. My “we’re going on vacation” project is a light-weight shawl. Either way it has to be easy to memorize so I’m not juggling charts while knitting,

  • Depending on the time of year, the length of the trip, what I already have on the needles…but I do like working on plain striping socks or a hat and podcasting my way through the trip.

  • I carry around a light scarf that fits in my purse. Right now it’s the Oh, Helen by Rebecca Carmichael Stromgren. It’s the easiest yet most impressive looking pattern. In 2016 and early 2017 I made about a dozen of those pink hats while traveling.

  • I will travel with whatever project I have on the needles at the time. If it is something large I will take other things out of my bag to make room for my knitting.

  • It depends on how I travel! If by car I take my my big bag with what ever I am working on at the moment ( usually a few things)!

  • I travel with a shawl-like this one!!!

  • Always socks. I see travel time as a way to experiment with new stitches and patterns. Sock knitting has also been a great conversation-opener. So many people theses days don’t know that socks can be hand made. And then there are the friendly knitters who pull out their projects …

  • Charter member of the sisterhood of the traveling socks. Also usually have a ball of dishcloth cotton with me and a couple of patterns memorized.

  • Oddly enough, my favorite travel project is a shawl. I like knowing I have plenty of project to work on which means I’m less likely to pack too much yarn. Well, I still pack too much yarn, but to a lesser degree.

  • I prefer to travel with a simple shawl knitting pattern. I’m absolutely shawl obsessed.

  • I like to take blanket squares with me for travel knitting, especially because I don’t have to worry about taking a pattern or other supplies. And it’s really easy to start and stop without losing track of what I’m doing.

  • Kelly Judson plain socks.

  • My favourite travel knitting is a shawl. There is usually only simple shaping, rarely needle changes or stitches to put on hold, etc. And it seems to attract attention more than smaller projects. I have to do my part to convert the world to knitting!

  • What a giveaway! I like to travel with at least one fingering weifht and one DK/worsted weight project, preferably one that is simple/mindless or one that I can finish on the trip (such as a hat in winter) and one that might require a little more attention, so I have choices. And I can choose to ignore them and buy souvenir yarn if I leave room in my suitcase!

  • At the moment, the Colorwash Scarf from the MDK Wild Colors Field Guide is going wherever I go. Other times, I carry a pair of vanilla socks on two circulars. Or a Prayer Shawl. Basically, anything I can do without a pattern.

  • My favorite travel knitting project is probably fingerless mitts. Something smallish with a little variation. I will really bring any knitting w me on a trip – secretly hoping for long delays at the airport! Ha!

  • I usually travel with something simple. Baby blanket, washcloths, knitted baby bibs.

  • My travel knitting is anything small enough that doesnt need too much concentration – usually a shawl or a sleeve. I use my daily commute to work as knitting time.

  • Favourite travel knitting … a shawl, usually a TGV because it is so easy to knit and the results are fabulous. Even the name is suggestive of travel (initials are of the French high speed train).

  • Right now, my favorite is a (to-be-felted) accessories bag.

  • I like to carry an easy project, fingerless mitts, a hat, taat socks, cowl, or a scarf.

  • Shawls, cowls, hats, fingerless mitts, baby sweaters..
    .

  • SOCKS!

  • My favorite travel project would have to be the Casapinka Another Brick in the Shawl that I recently completed on my round trip flight from Washington DC to Australia. How could you not love something that occupied your time for that length of air time! Anxious to get my hands on FG No. 6!

    I also like to crochet granny squares travel projects.

  • My all-time travel knitting project are socks.

  • Small and uncomplicated – I do hats, coasters, or a scarf. I always have 1 portable project going because I have a lot of wait time at soccer games, taekwan do classes, etc. If I’m travelling by plane, where I can concentrate better, I’ll take a more complicated pattern.

  • Whatever I happen to be working on at the time. I have traveled in 80F degree weather making a thick wool sweater (maybe not the best choice) but I can’t seem to put away the gorgeous thing I have been desiring even though I’m squeezing myself into an airplane seat!

  • Definitely a shawl. Easy knitting on round needles and an simple enough pattern. As the shawl “grows” – makes a warm cover up for cool airplanes and traveling by car.

  • Socks! Small and intricate.

  • My favorite take-along is a simple shawl with garter stitch – no counting, no thinking, just entertainment.

  • My favourite travel project is a toss up between socks and mittens. It depends on the weather.

  • something small

  • socks and hats for travel – simple and small, easy to do in the car and still hold up my end of the conversation.

  • I carried socks for the longest time, as my shawls get too big. However, colorwork cowls are my new favorite as I don’t make as many socks as when my kids were young. Grand babies sweaters are great too, as I have two under two.

  • Helical knitting! Either mitts or a cowl. In fingering weight so I don’t run out of knitting while I’m out of town. *shudder*

  • Anything fingering weight works for me!

  • My favorite travel knitting is big rows of garter stitch.

  • Socks are the best, but I now have a Vertices Unite shawl traveling with me in New York.

  • I find, that if I try hard enough, just about anything is a travel knit! Where there’s a will there’s a way.

  • My fav travel knitting – baby sweaters and socks, I will go as far as a scarf if not bulky or large

  • My favorite travel knitting is most definitely socks. I always have a pair going that I keep in my purse.

  • Socks! Even take a socks project when backpacking, small portable,lightweight!

  • Whatever I am working on and whichever fits in my knitting bag. Knitting on the go is always an adventure!

  • Travel knitting is always a manageable size lightweight shawl — easy portability! Do folks really travel without knitting — not sure how that’s possible.

  • Always carry a garter stitch project for travel. No need for reading instructions – just knit, knit, knit.

  • I’m traveling today with a linen scarf on the needles!

  • Travel kniting …garter stitch! also known as, ‘nothing with a chart…’

  • Socks or shawls are my favorite knit for travel.

  • Anything with simple stockinette without having to think too much and can pick up and put down quickly…

  • I actually find travel knitting pattern choice to be a huge problem. In short, it can’t be too plain/boring but it really can’t be too complicated either — learned that when I tried to knit a very fancy lace shawl on vacation — the kind where QUIT INTERRUPTING ME I LOST MY PLACE AGAIN. I always choose something in fingering-weight yarn so it takes longer … but it does have to be finishable or I lose hope. Most recently I’ve done shawlettes and baby sweaters.

  • Dishcloths

  • I always pack several projects just in case I run out of knitting. But I always work on something I don’t have to pay too much attention to. Right now I’m working on a garter cowl.

  • When I travel I like long, simple knit rows – stockinette sweaters or garter shawls.

  • Anything with an easy pattern so I can enjoy scenery and conversations along the way!

  • Socks! And only one-at-a-time. Preferably in colors relevant to where I’m traveling.

  • My favorite travel project is socks – but twice, I’ve traveled with a Pi Shawl. Elizabeth was right, it’s a perfect traveling project!

  • I travel with baby hats or sweaters.

  • Socks!

  • Honey Cowl! I can’t say anything you haven’t already told us about how easy yet satisfying this project is. I love it!

  • I take along whatever small and easy project I have on my needles. Nothing too short complicated and thought provoking!

  • I travel with social knitting. My projects vary.

  • Right now my travel project is Susan Ashcroft’s “Belgian Waffle”. The stitch pattern is easily remembered and it’s easy to read your knitting to see where you are.

  • I love a compact shawlette as a to-go project, or a pair of simple socks. Something that doesn’t involve too much concentration, so it’s suitable for social situations.

  • Forgot to add, my favorite travel project is a scarf or cowl.

  • Socks! Then when they are all finished, I think of them as my Jackson Hole socks, my Colorado socks, or my Chicago socks. They forever remain associated with the place I was visiting. Fun!

  • I have to go with small and mindless for travel knitting due to 2 small children in tow. 😉 Like a simple shawl in its early stage, hat or something for the kids.

  • Another traveling sock knitter here. Wrist warmers are also a nice, small project to bring along!

  • my favorite travel knitting project is my churchmouse poncho in mad tosh!

  • Deciding on my travel knitting project is usually the first thing I do when getting ready for a trip. Next week I’ll be in the car for a few hours with my husband, who fortunately likes to do most of the driving. I was thinking about which small, easy WIP I would bring but writing this gave me the idea that I could finish the log cabin blanket I have been working on for too many years! I will have lots of car time but I could still bring socks or a scarf for once I get there and have time hanging out with my relatives. If I only have the blanket easily available in the car, I could get it done finally. It’s one big piece of log cabin so when the knitting is done it’s done, as I work in the ends as I go along. I already feel relieved just thinking about it! Now I better order my new field guide. (I recently finished a Windows Pane shawl by Casapinka and have been thinking about other ways to use the technique so the Albers shawl intrigues me.)

  • I usually try for something small while traveling – a scarf/shawl, cowl, socks or a component to a larger project – like a square or something – this kit would be the perfect travel knit for summer

  • My favorite travel knitting is an easy shawl or socks.

  • Currently it is shawl and the finish is in sight Would love to teplace it with this

  • My travel knitting is anything that does not require a pattern. Currently it is Alexandra’s Airplane Shawl!

  • Socks! Always socks for travel knitting.

  • Socks, socks, socks. On the needles – Socks of Kindness

  • My favorite travel knitting project is whatever I’m working on ! I’m a Mama to a toddler so I take whatever time I can get on whatever project (she is currently claiming all over my legs and using them as her personal lounge spot)!

  • Actually, shawls are my go-to knit for travelling, they are small & portable. Yes, socks are too but I prefer shawls, I get bored with socks. I am a sweater knitter & they can be cumbersome to travel with so a shawl it is!

  • Socks! Thanks for the chance at this gorgeous linen.

  • I’m in the sock camp for travel knitting projects.

  • My favorite travel knitting is, of course, socks! Top-down, Magic Loop, one at a time 🙂

  • A shawl is my fave. It is just the right size to throw in my work backpack and easy to pull out on the plane or car.

  • What a great giveaway! Socks, hats,cowls, and shawls. With backup. Also small bag with extra supplies.

  • Right now, my favorite travel project is the parallelogram scarf from the MDK Sequence Field Guide. I love seeing the colors shift with the gradient yarn.

  • I always travel with my shawl pattern

  • Socks. I love knitting socks. So compact.

  • My favorite travel knitting is dish cloths.

  • My favorite travel knitting right now is the “ex-boyfriends” shawl. Nothing but garter stitch!

    Thanks for the giveaway of this gorgeous shawl kit!

  • Favorite travel project is either knitted fingerless mitts or a Martina Behm shawl.

  • Usually, a no brain scarf or shawl, or a hat

  • My favorite travel knit is slippers. There’s always someone in my life that needs a new pair of slippers!

  • Depends on the mode of travel-socks for a plane ride -garter stitch projects for a car ride.

  • My favorite traveling knitting is socks or gloves or mitts or a lightweight scarf (like this kit!)

  • I never leave the house without a pair of socks on my needles! As a result, many of my socks have instant connections with places and events – aqua Smooshy socks remind me of a hospital vigil with my mom, the bright red ones always evoke memories of our long car trip to visit the grandkids one special Christmas, and of course my orange hand-dyes always smell like the beach to me!

  • I love travel knitting projects that are portable, lovely and cause a stir!

  • My favorite travel knit is something simple — not totally mindless, but nothing complex since I am easily distracted by sightseeing along the road! Socks, scarves. It also helps if it is small — no afghans!

  • I always have a sock project in a bag ready to go!

  • I knit a cowl for my grandson while on vacation because he had asked for one. He wore it every day until the weather warmed up.

  • if flying, something that’s easy to stow like socks. Last time though I made a pair of “knitted knocker” for LYS.

  • My travel knitting has to be a simple pattern on circular needles…usually hats, cowls, or the Airplane Scarf.

  • My forever favorite travel project is some variation of the garter stitch shawl/wrap.

  • Socks! Almost always a plain vanilla pattern with an interesting yarn. Sometimes I’ll work on a hat. If I’m flying it needs to fit in a small purse. If it’s a car trip I want to also enjoy the scenery and read the map – so it needs to be simple.

    • I have s diagonal asymmetrical shawl, all garter stitch with two alternating colors and then a block of a pop color (not there yet). I call this my AMTRAK scarf because I only work on it while riding the train. It’s very relaxing, I use a circular needle so I don’t annoy any other passengers. Its on my Ravelry page. (Jerseygirl65 on Ravelry). Thank you.

  • Intellectually, I’d choose socks, but I don’t like knitting socks (just like wearing them and spending hours looking at sock pattern books). So, for me it’s a shawl kind-of project. It can even be a little complicated. Odd, I know.

  • Alexandra’s Airplane Scarf! All in the round and it’s versatile for a number of yarn weights.

  • I travel a lot for work, so I always have a pair of socks and a shawl to knit.

  • I tend to crochet more than knit when on a plane, and usually it is a shawl. in the car, I knit, and then I knit some more…

  • definitely travel with a shawl project, especially love iceland shawl patterns, the Nordic Wind and Hyrna are two i’ve found so comforting to travel with….lori

  • I am getting back into knitting after 20 years so I like simple projects I can knit while somewhat distracted by the scenery and car conversations.

  • I travel with hexipuffs from the bee keeper’s quilt. https://www.ravelry.com/projects/CathV-S/the-beekeepers-quilt
    or hats depending on what groove I’m in.

  • My favorite thing to knit while traveling is a cowl. I don’t have to worry about stitches falling off the needles and I can end it when I run out of yarn.

  • My favorite travel knit is a shawl that doesn’t have too much lace.

  • My favorite travel knit is anything in the “round” that has minimal shaping.

(Jerseygirl65 on Ravelry). Thank you.

  • Dishcloths because I haven’t tackled socks yet, but I will next project.(unless I win a shawl kit, lol). Thank you.

  • Always have 2, a small one for planes and something larger for down time.

  • I love cowls! They are super portable, and fun, pops of color. Plus every time I wear it, I am reminded of where I was while knitting. It works at least as well as a photo album for taking me back to the m9ment.

  • I love to have socks in one project bag and a shawl in the other!

  • For traveling in a plane or car, i like knitting scarves, shawls, cowls as they are fairly small and easy to stow away when needed.

  • Mindless knitting for travel! That’s me!

  • I usually don’t go anywhere without a sock project!

  • My favorite travel knitting project is socks or hats. But I can take any project on a road trip!

  • Socks and mittens!

  • I spend more time thinking about the project appropriate for the trip than the clothes appropriate for the trip!!! I am a happy traveler!

  • whatever I am working on that is simple enough and whatever needs some extra hustle–shawl, socks, or hat, usually.

  • My current travel knitting is a children’s pullover in fingering weight yarn! #simpleknittedtubesftw

  • Whatever project I’m working on is fine for a car trip. Even simple shawls or hats would be great for a plane journey or cruise.

  • My favorite is a shawl with a modular pattern that I have memorized. Sometimes it is just a garter stitch triangular shawl in fun colors.

  • I’m not proud, all knitting is travel knitting if it fits in my carryon or the backseat of the car. This has led to some interesting dilemmas though.

  • I always travel with knitting – usually a small shawl or cowl, sometimes socks. Always on circs so I don’t loose a needle.

  • My favorite travel knit is a peds sock, when the weather is cooler it’s sometimes fingerless mitts from leftover sock yarn.

  • I’ll knit anything “mindless” in the car, preferably when I’m not driving!

  • My favorite travel project is a hat! They are compact to make and fun to wear after and also great gifts.

  • Socks or hats are my travel favs.

  • I am already subscribed to Snippets 🙂
    lately, my favorite travel project has been marianna’s onesie patterns

  • Lately it’s been the cowl, Wolkig by Martina Behm. Always have one on the needles…

  • My favorite to-go knitting project is garter/seed stitch squares (any size, to be sewn together whenever I have enough squares finished).

  • I use circular needles for travel projects. Small projects, usually hats or cowls, for airplanes; kids’ sweaters or scarves for car trips.
    PS this shawl is beautiful!

  • I worked on a fisherman knit sweater (complete with bobbles!) in a beautiful brown wool while traveling back and forth to college on a Greyhound bus. So many years ago. Wish I still had that sweater.

  • If I win it, this shawl would definitely be it. But really, shawls or anything stockinette or garter where I don’t have to focus… even a sweater if I’m not at a shaping portion. Easily memorized lace patterns as well– less weight to pack.

  • my favorite travel knit is something with parts like blanket squares that repeat but are small and easy to pack.

  • The body of a raglan sweater- miles of simple stockinette stitch .

  • I do a lot of lace knitting, so I always take a shawl.

  • I always have a pair of socks on the needles, easy to pick up and take along when I travel.

  • Usually I have a scarf, cowl or socks as a travel project.

  • Hats and scarves are my preferred travel projects…easy, mindless, and small.

  • My favorite travel knit is hats, especially baby hats. Or anything not to big with long stretches of no fancy colorwork or shaping.

  • Shawls, always shawls. Once an Age of Brass and Steam of a lace weight on #8 needles. Once a Multnomah of a lovely yellow. I’m currently preparing to knit a Guernsey Triangle and we’ll see how much summer traveling that will cover.

  • My favorite travel project is generally whatever is on my needles. I like something a little smaller for plane trips. I always have to drive so I never get to knit in the car. But taking my knitting out and about, it is generally a simple or fairly simple project – something I can chat and knit.

  • My travel knits used to be socks, but I’m finding more shawls on my needles when I travel now.

  • Newborn caps

  • My favorite travel project is my ten stitch blanket.

  • My favorite carry along is socks.

  • Travel projects vary depending on mode of travel, of course! Daily commute must be fairly small and interruptable. If there is a road trip involved, simple patterns but size is no object because conversations and scenery must be attended to. Train journeys depend on length of trip as to complexity of the project.

  • We’re headed to Florida in a week & I’ll be packing my regular travel knitting pack. First, something to knit in the car. That should be something very basic, preferably a stockinette something. Then, when we get there, I will have brought at least 5 or 6 WIPs. It is very important to bring LOTS of projects in case you get stuck on one, you still have something to fall back on (not that has ever happened to me ).

  • My favorite travel knitting project is a cowl. I’ve done several in both warm and cool weather yarns. I usually choose a fairly simple pattern, but one with enough interest so I don’t get too bored on a 4+ hour flight and one which doesn’t need a lot of stitch markers, as I’m bound to lose at least one along the way.

  • An easily memorized pattern or a project without a pattern! I cannot imagine having to refer to a chart or detailed instructions all the time. Once I took my Les Miserables scarf on a trip to India. It is just miles of stockinette with dropped stitches, then lightly felted. It was perfect to work on now and again, and on the long plane rides.

    Stockinette socks on magic loop would be great too.

  • One of the most exciting parts about planning a trip is choosing my travel project! I like to choose a yarn or pattern that I’ve been saving and incorporate my knitting excitement into my travel experience. Socks can be fun, but I also love shawls, hats, or baby garments.

    Thanks for the generous giveaway!

  • Shawls or wraps.

  • Always socks!

  • My travel projects in the car are almost anything, depends upon whether I want mindless knitting or a more complicated pattern

  • Currently traveling around with a Hitchhiker shawl growing on my needles!

  • I used to like cowls for travel knitting, but have recently taken up knitting socks; I’ve heard how good they are as a travel project and I can’t wait to try it.

  • My go-to travel knitting is socks! I mean that’s my go-to anytime knitting, but whatever LOL

  • I always take knitting my “favorite” is whatever I am working on at the time. I also always discard on trips socks, underwear so I can come home with new yarn in my carryon!

  • My favorite travel knit is socks too!

  • My favorite travel knitting is whatever is most portable and fits the method of travel and season (I avoid big, multi-skein projects on airplanes and heavy woolly projects in summer!). Hats, mittens, socks, dishcloths, tiny sweaters, shawls, amigurumi… Sometimes a knitting themed book is my favorite travel knitting!

  • Love socks and hats for travel projects. Both are compact and the small bag fits easily in my purse.

  • Hats, socks or shawls. Things that don’t need to be seamed to finish!

  • I’ve really been into cowls lately, they travel well and keep my interest!

  • This summer it will be an ethereal intarsia shawl, of course

  • Currently my travel project is wrist warmers for holiday gifts! I plan to have at least 3 pair waiting in the gift closet by Dec 1!

  • I like to travel with everything.

  • Usually it’s socks but I just got yarn for a 10 stitch blanket. Just 10 stitches on the needles throughout and no seaming.

  • For travel, the item cannot be too large, of course, but the type of item is less important than that the pattern is fairly mindless.

  • An easy to memorize scarf.

  • I usually take a hat when I’m on the go

  • Shawls and scarves in an uncomplicated (think garter or stockinette) are perfect traveling companions. I try to have one on the needles and in my bag at all times for those inevitable delays, waiting rooms, etc.

  • I am obsessed with shawls right now. So easy to work on when traveling.

  • Socks are portable, but I like long, repetitive projects where the patterns are easy to memorize and not hard to pick up if I’m interrupted.

  • My favorite travel knitting project is actuallybjust my camera plus colored pencils to record ideas for new projects when I get home 🙂

  • My favorite travel knitting is a scarf or cowl— I try to be near the beginning of the project before it gets too bulky.

  • I always travel with a shawl to knit , always a fine yarn so I am unlikely to run out of knitting while moving around. Of course I am also looking for knitting stores along the way and usually find myself adding another project or two, always have space for this in my luggage.

  • Socks or hats are my favorite travel knitting easy and small

  • I love to knit socks on a trip. They fit in a small bag and don’t take up much room.

  • Socks on Addi’s Sockenwunder circs or their new Crasy Trio needles – such fun!

  • I do a lot of charity knitting so I usually have either a scarf (2-3 day trip) or a blanket for a longer trip – something easy!

  • My favorite traveling project is finishing whatever I am knitting on and not driving during the trip. I especially liked travel by train around the Grand Canyon two years ago.

  • My favorite travel knitting is either a shawl or socks!

  • Travel knitting for me is a no purling project. Right now am working on 4 points baby blanket, a free Purl Soho pattern. Bonus: no sewing

  • I pick a simple repetitive project so that I can still enjoy the scenery.

  • I haven’t had the chance to knit while traveling yet as I just got into knitting less than two months ago. My favorite thing that I’ve taken with me in car rides so far has been a baby bonnet.

  • I’ve brought socks on almost every trip I’ve taken since I started knitting, but in the last couple of years I’ve come to appreciate having a simple shawl in a lightweight yarn along for the ride.

  • I spend more time planning my travel knit project than the trip itself. For big trips I like a little easy lace to keep my interest on the plane or train, then something with stockinette or garter for evenings in the pub or resting at a museum cafe. Shawls or a pattern like Tegna have been my favorites. I love wearing it later and remembering where I was when I made it!

  • I love that it looks so light, and airy; a perfect summer project and accessory!

  • I travel frequently, and in the last month my travel knitting has included: lace scarf, fair isle hat, baby blanket mitered squares, and a super chunky sweater.
    I dont know that I have a favorite travel project, so much as I love projects that travel. ❤

  • Hats, hats, and hats!

  • My favorite daily travel project is socks, but for a trip, I like a big, mostly garter stitch shawl with a little interest.

  • I am new to knitting so don’t travel too much with knitting yet. Would have to be something easy like a scarf.
    Thanks for this beautiful giveaway!

  • My favorite travel knitting project is a hat! Nothing too complicated so that I din’t have to be constantly referring to charts or instructions. This way I can actually finish my project and then have justified a trip to the local yarn store of where I have traveled to in order to get more yarn to start another project. Bonus!

  • I always love socks for travel knitting.

  • Right now I have two travel projects: one is the never-ending cable band on my Dealla cardigan, and the other is a fairly simple Roberta’s Wrap.

  • I usually take a couple of bags of knitting on vacation, because I never know what I’ll be in the mood for! And I’m overly optimistic!

  • Socks have always been my travel go-to because they’re so small and easily portable. I’m expecting my first grandchild (yay!), so my preference is changing to baby sweaters.

  • Travelling is the perfect time for those small projects, baby sweaters, socks, hats, coals. I bring multiples, because omg!, what if I ran out! It would be like running out of books!!

  • For me it is socks. I always have a sock in my purse.

  • Depends on the travel – if car, could be anything…if plane, small like socks, dishcloths or light like lace shawl.

  • I’m knitting a shawlette, at this moment on east coast-west coast trip so lots of progress and should complete by end of trip.

  • Socks are my go to travel knitting! Easy and portable!

  • My favorite travel knit is stuffed animals

  • If i’m knitting, its definitely hats or squares for a larger project. If crocheting, I like taking small amigurumi projects with me!

  • My favorite travel knit is whatever I want to finish first. I hope that it will be something that can be knit in one’s lap without spilling into an aisle or floor. Least favorite would be something with a multitude of colors, as in intarsia. I usually have more than one project simmering, so I have a choice when a trip comes up. Now I’m waiting for self-driving cars so I can knit while “driving” alone.

  • My favorite travel knitting project would be small items, usually socks, or mittens. My all time favorite travel knitting project was a cardigan I knit for my daughter while my family traveled from Ontario to the Northwest Territories in Canada. We took 10 days to travel to our final destination. The yarn was purple with flecks of all sorts of wonderful colours through out. I remember trying to find the right shade of purple buttons along the way so that she would have it to wear at the end of our trip.

  • Socks are a super travel-ready project!

  • Love to travel with a project I can do by memory!

  • I like to “travel” knit cotton dish/wash cloths or a simple scarf. Or a beautiful new shawl from a kit!

  • Worsted weight cowls for teacher christmas presents. I have a lot of kids. They have a lot of teachers.

  • I travel with a project that can be knit on circular needles – so it could be a shawl or Magic Loop socks. I’ve lost too many dpns traveling sigh

  • I don’t travel much, but if I did, I’d want to knit something easily portable like hats or socks.

  • My favorite thing to knit while traveling is socks. I am the world’s slowest sock knitter, so bringing along a pair in progress forces me to concentrate on them and make some progress. And I like remembering where each pair has been when I finally get to wear them (usually multiple places, since I’m so slow!).

  • Cool give away. My favourite travel knitting is simple socks or a simple shawl/scarf. I like to do something relatively mindless but not too boring either so that I can be open to conversations and sights but able to make something useful and keep my hands busy.

  • Beautifil yarn! Beautiful shawl!

  • My favorite travel knitting is a scarf. I belong to a group that knits for the community: our Veterans, the soup kitchen, a program for young families…we also put out knit items for the community on the eve of the Christmas tree lighting. Community knitting (rather than charity knitting because who wants to be labelled a charity?) warms my heart.

  • I take my “stupid knitting” with me everywhere. It’s a project that I can pick up a d knit without much thought and put away quickly. It might be a cowl, shawl or socks.

  • I like working on simple knit hats. Working in the round means I won’t lose my needles or hooks, and the project works up pretty quickly!

  • My fabvorite travel knit project is something small and mindless- the garter section of a lace shawl, a simple hat.

  • Socks, natch! A hat as well, just in case.

  • Probably NOT the fair isle with 14 colors I’m working on right now. It’s actually OK for the car, but not for planes or trains. I was just thinking that maybe it’s time to start a shawl.

  • I always have a family member or friend with a new baby on the way so my travel bag usually has a baby blanket or tiny sweater and hat to work on❤.

  • I love shawl and scarf knitting for travel. Always something small, so I can take multiple things going at once so I feel like I have brought more with me.

  • Depends on the road trip and how much navigation I need to provide. Airline travel means something portable and smaller. Usually, I travel with something fairly simple that doesn’t require a lot of concentration. Socks and scarves or shawls are what I knit the most while traveling

  • Hats are definitely my favorite travel knitting project, although shawls have so much appeal just because they keep my interest going the whole time! And serve as a blanket for if I get cold. 🙂

  • My favourite travel knitting project is to work on a shawl with repeating rows so it’s mindless to work on

  • Socks are the most convenient, but truly, I’ll lug anything along!

  • I always have socks and depending on the length of th

  • Honey Cowl or the tried & true ball band dishcloth!

  • A simple shawl or scarf pattern like Hitchhiker by Martina Behm with a gorgeous, colorful yarn works for me.

  • Simple shawls or wraps are my “go to” for travel, don’t want to miss the scenery but can’t not knit while sitting still.

  • My favorite traveling project is socks!!!

  • I carried Granito through Italy. Anything with acres of stockinette, knit in the round.

  • My go to travel projects are shawls and scarves.

  • Lately it has been a flying disk, perfect for flying as it is a small project and if I finished a skein makes two so I can make a second one.

  • Cowls! Zip around in the round; stop when you have just enough yarn to bind off.

  • Love working on scarf or shawl with simple repeat so I can talk and knit at the same time

  • I’m not really a sock knitter, so I don’t generally choose that old stand-by for travel knitting. I choose anything small enough to fit in a smallish project bag. At the moment, it’s the Guernsey Wrap, Project #4 of #yearoftheretrostash — 9 projects in 2018 knit entirely from my massive, decades old, inherited stash. Learn more at amakerslife.tumblr.com.

  • I don’t like to knit while traveling because I like to concentrate on new surroundings and experiences. When I have down time I like to read.

  • Oooo! Love the shawl. My fav so far was a triangular shawl Fine & Dandy, by yellowcosmo, which I knit in Shibui Reed.

    • Right now,I’m knitting a shawl,Close to You.

  • I’m in Italy now and brought along socks and a lace scarf with an easy to memorize pattern to knit while here.

  • My favorite travel knitting is baby knitting. I like to keep track of where the project has been to give the baby a good start in the world.

  • I like socks as a travel project, or whatever project I’m so excited about at the moment!

  • I like to knit garter stitch shawls. They dont require as much concentration

  • Put me in the giveaway please.

    My favorite travel knitting is a sleeve to whatever sweater I am currently knitting. Since I always have a sweater or 2 on the needles!

    I am also fond of starting a top down sweater as I get on a plane. It keeps my mind occupied and not thinking of airplanes crashing or engines blowing up

  • Since I’m in the middle of a year of traveling in an RV – everything is a traveling project! So far I made hubby a cabled hat and am now trying socks on DPNs.

    But normally I like a small project on circular needles – a hat, a cowl or a simple shawl.

    Thanks for the opportunity!

  • I love to knit socks and baby items when traveling by plane. In the car, anything goes!

  • I like to knit donation hats. Doesn’t require closr attention so can enjoy the scenery.

  • I live in a rural area so even going to the grocery store is “traveling.” So I have two bags ready to go all the time — one has socks and the other dishcloths.

  • Socks – always my favorite travel knit. I take them everywhere! 🙂

  • I always have a relatively simple but time consuming shawl/scarf (the pattern for which I have memorized) that I take with me on trips. I don’t “let” myself work on it at home which makes it seem a treat to work on when I haul it out for a trip!

  • Always travel with a simple shawl on the needles.

  • A cowl is my travel knitting. As I live in a northern climate, I need ones for fall through to spring. I choose something that’s one yarn and doesn’t require an extra set of needles. A simple-ish pattern is also useful so if I need to put it down I’m not confused when I pick it up again. They’re also great to give as gifts as one size fits all.

  • I teavel with a small one skein cowl or triangular shawl project in my purse and usually a couple additional one or two skein projects in my day pack. One of my favorite travel patterns is Lacey Baktus. It’s easy to memorize but keeps your interest.

  • Travel with a shawl that has simple repeats–I’m easily distracted.

  • Hands down, a pair of mittens.

  • Like to travel with a shawl or scarf as knitting project- something not too complex so it can easily be set down.

  • My current travel favorites are shawls of the lightweight variety. Thanks for the chance to win!

  • I always have a small bag with socks in progress. That’s my traveling wip.

  • Socks are the best for travel

  • Socks, socks, socks for traveling.

  • Dishcloth and/or dishtowel

  • I have a toddler granddaughter. All travel project have been dresses in the round, monster pants, headbands, all baby stuff. What a Joy!

  • I take whatever project I want. I make it work.

  • My favorite travel project is socks. If you finish them then you have another nice pair to wear while you’re away from home.

  • A cowl or scarf

  • I like to travel with something small, often socks Last trip I took squares for my vivid blanket

  • A shawl, not too complicated, in delicious colors.

  • I love to knit scarves or socks when traveling.

  • In general, socks – they’re portable (usually one can fit in my purse), and I knit them on two circs so the risk of an accidental stabbing is a bit lower.

  • I usually prefer socks because they are so compact but I’ve been known to bring a shawl on trips, too. If I’m not driving, I’m knitting.

  • Favorite travel knit socks or shawl…usu take both just in case lol.

  • I am already ‘enrolled’ in both.

  • My favorite travel knitting projects are ones that are in little pieces. I can’t handle juggling a big piece of knitting as well as all those wonderful bits and pieces that I use to knit. (I’m a sucker for cute totes, etc.) Right now, my favorite project in little pieces is making rectangles for Warm Up America! This is a non-profit that collects knitted or crocheted rectangles that get sewn into afghans to be given to homeless people. A stash buster, an opportunity for creativity, with a good deed at the end of it – what’s not to like!

  • If traveling by car, I prefer something big like the Bright Stripes blanket I’m making for my high school daughter (it’s cold in school!). If on a plane, something small like socks or a shawl seems to fit better. I’ve got some socks going with Pairfect yarn, and the Sunwalker shawl too. Thanks for all the work y’all do to make MDK great.

  • Tiny airplane project favorite is a special wash cloth, bright and organic.

  • My favorite travel knit projects are hats and cowls!

  • Wowzers. Even in picture form that’s some luscious yarn.

    I would like to say something practical like a hat or socks, but if I was to be honest, my travel project is whatever I happen to be working on whether it be mittens or sweater or even blanket.

  • I love socks as a travel knitting project!

  • I usually try to knit something simple and portable with fingering or lace-weight yarn–shawls and cowls, mostly. My favorite travel project was the Purl Soho Cashmere Cowl No. 2 I knit in France–never fails to remind me of the magic of seeing Provence.

  • My favourite travel project is having a shawl on the go……not a lace one but one with simple stitches.

  • Travel project? Cowl on circulars!

  • Travel knitting….just about anything! Always socks, (heals, toes and cuffs), shawl (current project), and at least one mindless project, sometimes wash clothes, but usually a basic hat.

  • My favorite travel project is something that I have cast on but not made substantial progress (guess what I’m usually doing after the packing!) that uses one (maybe two) skeins and has a fairly easy structure or remembered pattern. The Parallelogram Scarf was a great travel project.

  • I live in the suburbs of NY and commute into the city. The train ride is the perfect place to knit without distractions. While small projects are the easist to tote ( socks, gloves, scarves and shawls) I have made sweaters, jackets and other things during my commute. I am working on a pair of socks now and will move onto the Albers scarf next( from Field Guide #6) I love Shibui yarns.

  • Travel knits? Most of my travel is by car, so I bring ALL THE KNITS! Mwahahaa!

  • I loved traveling through Ireland along the Ring of Kerry, knitting the Waterfall Scarf. Between the sights and the workings of my hands, It felt like perfection.

  • always a scarf!

  • Those colors! That pattern! Such a perfect combination!

  • socks! socks! also, the hand towels from MDK Book 1 – those in linen. I’m on about my 20th pair.

  • For travel knitting, definitely socks!

  • I must have a vanilla sock in hand if I am traveling.

  • My fav traveling knit project is an alpaca/wool Blue Skies Ultra geometric scarf pattern because the feel of the soft fiber is so relaxing. I have it in my favorite black leather traveling knit bag hanging from a door knob always ready to grab. I have made several and am always proud to gift them!

  • I travel with whatever is on my needles – currently a shawl. Thanks for a chance to win!

  • I am usually a sock girl, but sometimes a hat depending on the season.

  • I love a hat. Small and easy to transport

  • Socks! Socks and more socks!

  • My fav travel project is definitely socks…2 at a time!!!

  • Socks for sure, but only the plain vanilla variety. If I have to follow a pattern, the traveliness of them is gone.

  • Something mindless. Socks are always good. Small enough to fit in my bag.

  • My favorite travel knitting projects are scarves, cowels and shawls . Always on a circular needle my personal preference. My little case of notions like stitch holders & point protectors, tape measure etc…Always packed up for carry on.

  • My all time favorite grab n go project is cowls!

  • Travel knitting project
    Anything on circular needles, keep those points close to me so as not to do any harm :), or get caught up in anything unfamiliar. A flowing project to accompany the journey and flow of travel, making the awareness of caution to the wind or any disruptions no problem. A fiber that holds me close to nature, travel can be rough around the edges, so the yarn can keep me cozy in thoughts and comfort. A color to bring the journey to life, something bright for the tropics, or
    au’ natural for the trekking journey. Awe,,, knitting and travel are such good companions.

  • When traveling, socks. Who am I kidding? The answer is always Socks!

  • I love to travel with knitting! It’s the best use of time, isn’t it. I travel with projects that do not require me to look at the pattern instructions!

  • Baby items or socks or shawls

  • My choice is usually a simple hat because no matter what size it turns out it will still fit somebody. And you can experiment with small stitch patterns. As EZ said, “People will put anything on their heads”.

  • I like a project using non-splitty yarn, such as MDK’s Baby Genius Burp Cloth.

  • My favorite travel project is socks. Perhaps it’s obvious that they are a small project. I knit a sock on my bus tour of Turkey a few years ago–for my granddaughter. And once on a catamaran in the British Virgin Islands! Someone commented on how patiently I sat there and knitted.

  • I love to have something simple, such as a stockinette sock, or ones with a very simple pattern. If I will be traveling for longer, I like something a bit more intriguing such as a lace shawl.

  • I’m another traveling sock knitter! I love this shawl and would make it s traveling project for the summer.

  • The Airplane Scarf. I can knit it in the dark as it’s plain Knit in a tube, round and round I go knitting across the seas. I’m knitting it in a great cotton Blend next trip.

  • My favorite travel knit project of all time was the holey scarf (shawl pattern by Marianne Sigg) in Artfibers Tsuki. It was so lightweight, I didn’t mind carrying it everywhere, and it was just interesting enough but not too complicated!

  • My favourite travel knit is what ever I have on the go.

  • Historically socks have been the perfect travel knitting project for me… but I’m a little socked out at the moment! Truthfully, this year I’m thinking a light shawl is the way to go (something to wrap myself in on the way home?) The Albers Shawl is such a beauty!

  • In winter months my favorite travel knitting project is a shawl. In warmer seasons a vanilla sock.

  • My favorite travel knit is definitely socks! Or a smallish item like a cowl or sleeve with lots of stockinette!

  • I am new to knitting so I have not had experience with travel knitting but I would probably say a scarf or hat, something easy to take with me

  • Socks! Best travel project there is!

  • Something small, ie. Socks, dish cloth, baby hat…

  • Scarves and socks are my favorite items to knit while traveling. Love your newsletters!

  • I take 3-4 different projects on needles every time I travel, for various situations, there is always an appropriate project!

  • I love the Albers shawl! My travel knitting is usually whatever I’m working on; it’s not a good plan obviously, but I get so involved I don’t want to stop. But I have been lucky to be making small things for my very young granddaughter, so it’s been manageable. It’s always awkward, losing a needle on an airplane, having a ball of yarn roll away, and all the stitch markers that disappear on a car trip!

  • A nice simple shawl project is my favorite travel knitting. I have a rectangular shawl pattern that I knit for women with health issues that I can just about do in my sleep.

  • When I’m traveling, I like to take a small, uncomplicated (never lace!) piece of knitting to work on, usually something from the sock realm.

  • My favorite travel project is a shawl or scarf always on circular needles (so I don’t lose a needle!)

  • I am about to travel so am considering a cowl or top down baby sweater.

  • I travel with Granny Squares and a crochet hook!!

  • one word: washcloths!

  • Shawls and scarves are my favourite travel projects. Small and portable.

  • Always afraid to run out of knitting when traveling, I usually pack a pair of socks and a couple of shawls requiring different levels of concentration.

  • Socks on magic loop! So easy to travel with, they come with me to work everyday. 🙂

  • Churchmouse Bias Before and After scarf is my go-to travel project. I am on my fourth right now!

  • I’m in the midst of Sock Madness and will be travelling soon with a sock on the go, plus yarn for the next five pairs.

  • I usually have a couple of travel projects with me! Simple socks in a gorgeous yarn because I can stuff them in my purse or pocket for a quick knit as needed, that doesn’t take any brain power to figure out where I left off, and beautiful yarn to keep me motivated. Sweater or larger project of some type that might have miles of plain knitting that is perfect for sitting in a car, watching a movie on a plane, etc.

  • For traveling, I like knitting projects that are compact AND uncomplicated… such as a plain scarf or socks – though the thinner needles do tend to poke out of whatever project bag I carry 🙂

  • Garter stitch baby blanket or wash clothes with pivot edge

  • As long as it’s knittable without too many references to charts/instructions, it’s good travel knitting in my book. Bonus points if it’s a gift with a deadline and I’m not feeling motivated. I’m certainly not going to travel without knitting, so if I make a deadline project the only project I have, then I’m guaranteed to make progress on it.

  • Something light for carrying around and easy to put down and pick up again. Socks or a sweater with a pattern that doesn’t require too much concentration.

  • My favorite travel knitting is sock knitting – hours of enjoyment in a very small package 🙂

  • Hats. Easy knitting and small enough to carry along.

  • Generally shawls are my go-to travel project. Also any simple one color project .

  • My favorite traveling knitting project is a shawl. While on vacation, right now, I purchased summerfield kit from MD. Now It’s exciting to go home!

  • My favorite travel project is a cowl or scarf that is somewhat mindless 🙂 so I can visit and knit without too many mistakes 🙂

  • Socks or a hat are always easy to carry for travel projects so I usually go with one or more of those.

  • I always travel with a hat or scarf on the needles! Nothing on dpns:)

  • Hats and scarves are my go to travel knit projects!

  • My favorite travel knitting project is a sock.

  • I’m not sure if this counts as travel, but many years ago while I was teaching my son to drive, I would ride shotgun working on a Fair Isle vest. It kept me from being nervous about his driving!

  • A hat or wash cloth are always easy to grab and stuff in your purse

  • For me, “traveling” means knitting anywhere outside of the house. Shawls and patterns that are easily memorized are great, and especially ones where you can stop in the middle of a row and still know where you are next time. “Endless Rainbow” was great for that.

  • Socks–and “basic” socks at that…I know the pattern by heart (Yarn Harlot’s Basic Sock Recipe), they don’t take much room, and I can easily pack enough yarn for a second pair if I finish the first!

  • For my last summer vacation I started a shawl. Since it started out small it was perfect. When I wear it now I think of the great road trip we tools.

  • I love to take a pair of socks on every trip. They’re small and there is usually a lot of stockinette to do.

  • A shawl or a cowl is a perfect travel knit for me!

  • My travel projects are anything that I love to knit that uses, at most, one or two 100 grams skeins and doesn’t take a lot of thinking so usually simple shawls, cowls, fingerless mitts, hats, or socks.

  • Anything that doesn’t require a lot of direction following!

  • I love knitting your mitered crosses squares when I travel – after I memorize the pattern, that is….or maybe Brooklyn Tweed’s Noro stripe scarf.

  • Hats with an easy to memorize pattern.

  • Oakley or Swallowtail shawl!

  • My favorite travel knit is cowls!

  • I like to travel with small projects like baby blankets or lap blankets with interesting patterns to hold my attention.

  • Depending on my mode of travel and length of trip I take just about anything. Washcloths work great. Hats, mittens, a sweater…

  • Oddly enough, wash/dish cloths are my favorite small travel projects.

  • Try favourite travel knitting project is socks.

  • Socks, always socks, I leave a pair in the car that I knit on.

    • As a newly minted grandmother, my favorite travel knitting projects have now shifted from simple scarves or shawls to baby hats, booties, sweaters, and “blankies,” – the simpler the pattern, the better. I delight in the baby patterns in Mason Dixon Knitting books one and two, which are among the most well thumbed and well loved on my shelf (er, shelves!!) of knitting books.

  • The “hexipuffs” for the Beekeepers Quilt. The small project bag fits perfectly in my purse, making it the perfect takealong for knitting when ever and whereever!

  • I have started loving on the Honey Cowl, I’ve made two and am planning another one, an easy go to.

  • Anything small is good for travel knitting which mostly means socks because there are so many interesting yarns, I have the pattern recipe memorized and I like to wear them…

  • Beautiful! I hope I win

  • I like making a hat on a trip. I can finish it have a momento

  • My favorite travel project is a scarf because of its portability.

  • Currently the Terrace Wrap has been my travel knit, although yesterday I threw a log cabin square for a lap blanket in my purse.

  • I like to work on socks, fingerless mitts or hats. I have 9 grandchildren so someone always needs something!

  • Pi Shawl 🙂

  • Socks, except on planes, because I once lost a DPN into the little crack between the seat and the wall. So I usually travel with socks and a shawl, preferable with not more than 2 colors.

  • My favorite travel knit is a large but simple project that will last me the whole trip, like a simple triangle shawl.

  • I usually take either a sock project or a cowl project if traveling – they are so easy to pack up – sometimes I take both…. 🙂

  • I usually travel with a washcloth (riding in the car) or a shawl on circular needles with a repetitive pattern.

  • My favorite traveling knit project is a baby blanket- great for multitasking and something to give when it’s done.

  • My favorite travel knit is anything – which is why I always try to leave the driving to someone else!

  • Travel is a great time to knit a second sleeve. If the first one is done, you know if it works like you want. So you don’t need the whole sweater along for the ride. But maybe tuck in sleeve 1 to match up as you travel and knit sleeve 2.

  • Have shawl, will travel.

  • Has to be socks. So portable! I have them stashed in the glove boxes of both vehicles and in the two bags I regularly carry.

  • Lately, socks,at least two different pair. One self-striping and one more complex. And anything I’m currently working on, especially if I’m marooned in stockinette!

  • My favorite travel knitting is always socks – they are so portable and I usually pick a simple pattern so I can just knit away.

  • My favourite knitting to pack for short trips are blanket squares (I’m currently doing a KAL of them). They’re light and pack up small, and if I’m chatting too much and make an error they’re easy to tink!

  • Stockinette socks in self-striping yarn on a 9″ circular needle!

  • My Knit Night and Travel knitting favorites are 1) garter stitch, 2) stockinette in the round 3) swatching for gauge in either garter or stockinette, and 4) winding up non-wool yarn into balls. The last one may seem odd, but for me it cuts down on the tangling and collapsibility that non-stretchy yarns are prone to, even in cakes. (And non-wool skeins are generally just a yarn clot disaster waiting to happen.)

  • I just got my Transparency book – on way to LYS for some yarn for Cockleshell and this Albers shawl is gorgeous! My favorite travel project, right now, is the Jetstream shawl I am working on right now…

  • I like to travel with an uncomplicated shawl pattern, one with a slight challenge like texture or easy cables/lace but nothing too difficult that requires too much concentration!

  • My favorite travel knitting is anything with a simple pattern that I can do without a lot of counting, color changes, or thinking! 🙂

  • I love doing sweaters or blankets – super helpful for when my mind is numb on a red eye flight!

  • Ah….travel knitting. On a long cold weather road trip I like to work on a throw or even a blanket (keeps my knees warm). On a long warm weather road trip I like to work on a shawl. I keep a small bag handy with a sock project to use on short (like even 15 minute) road trips. I also knit in church school…socks. Plane trips I like small items like socks, wristwarmers, or doll clothes. I think that covers all the bases.

  • My favorite travel project is making socks or a sweater/shawl. I started a poncho for my daughter several months ago and it’s almost finished!

  • Favourite travel knitting… Usually I like to knit a shawl on my travels, as they start so small and grow so fast. I am just back from a week away, involving 2 long plane rides and some evenings in a hotel room. This time I knit a hat, which I got bored with too early, so now I have to rip out the decreases at the top, make it an inch longer and then decrease again. I also started some Squad mitts! But so far I only have about an inch on one mitt…

  • Loved doing your Leif color work cowl on vacation last year!

  • I love a good wrap or shawl (Traveling Woman, natch, being a repeat knit) when traveling.

  • Socks are the perfect travel project

  • I lve totrabel with anything that is mindless. Has to be an easy pattern repeat so that any distraction doesn’t cause me to knit a design element of my own. Lol

  • I’m not a big fan of flying, so my favorite travel knitting project is one that requires I pay attention to the pattern and only the pattern!

  • Usually a scarf or shawl or a hat, but lately Knitted Knockers – knitted breast prostheses. Small, quick and definitely a conversation starter!

  • Dutch stitch raw milk scarf.

  • I love a project (like the Hitchhiker scarf or the Jennifer Jones cowl) that has a little something interesting, but is mostly fairly mindless knitting that goes well with staring out the window (road trip) or people watching (airport)!

  • My favorite travel knitting would have to be a dishcloth.

  • Add me to the list of the sock-toters. If it’s a shorter trip, I like a hat or a cowl: something I can knit on autopilot in the round.

  • My favorite travel project is a scarf or hat.

  • I like bringing multiple projects since sometimes zoning out on stockinette is just the thing but sometimes really getting intense with cables can make a long flight seem less so. Multiple projects also helps get me to the next yarn shop in case I haven’t read the instructions thoroughly ahead of time (what, me?!) and don’t have all the bits and bobs I need. Floss does work remarkably well in place of waste yarn, especially if it’s waxed.

  • Socks are my go-to to-go!

  • My favorite travel knitting is an asymmetric triangle garter stitch shawl. Easy to throw in some patterning if I can pay attention, or just knit away forever if I can’t.

  • My favorite travel knit is anything with fine yarn on a circular needle. Simple lace shawls are great!

  • I travel with socks, hats, fingerless mitts or a small shawl.

  • My go to travel project is plain vanilla socks

  • I am primarily a cardigan knitter (easier to get off when a hot flash hits) so I travel with pieces of stockinet cardigans that have little or no shaping, usually fingering so one skein goes a long way.

  • I like to knit stockinette scarfs or cowls so it can be mindless knitting.

  • My favourite travel knitting is a shawl with very fine yarn on a circular needle. But I always have socks, just in case I run out of knitting.

  • my favorite to travel with are any types of hats!

  • I love the Weekender sweater to travel eith

  • Used to be cowl but switching to cap for my next trip. Circular needles are essential!

  • Love the pattern!

  • I’ll travel with pretty much anything other than full-sized blankets. That said, I love making hats – although then I usually have to bring both my circs and dpns.

  • I’ve just learned how to knit socks. However, since I tend to carry a big bag of everything-but-the-kitchen-sink supplies for my knitting, I don’t know if ANY of my projects are travel-friendly :/ Always afraid I’ll leave behind exactly what I need.

  • I like to travel with dish rags. Low stress if they get lost and sometimes it’s useful to have an extra towel around when you travel with two kids!

  • I travel usually with two sometimes three projects a hat or socks for in car or on plane but then a shawl or whatever my current WIP project is right now it is Comfort shawl so yummy.❤

  • A great new cowl project is always my favorite project to take on a trip. If there’s enough travel time, I get to wear it at my destination!

  • If it’s a long car ride, then I love a big, easy project. A stockinette sweater. If it’s a plane to tropical climates, then it’s socks.

  • did you say travel knitting? My favorite thing to do but it must not be too fussy or difficult, gentle on my brain so that I can pit it down for a beautiful sunset, or mid afternoon margarita and pick it up again without wondering what is next!

  • I have been happily retired for a year now!!
    When I did travel, which was daily, i love to knit in the round and a cowl was always on my needles for one of my friends to remember me by.

  • My favorite travel knitting project is a hat

  • A shawl like the Albers Shawl would make a perfect travel knitting project. Failing that, a pair of socks knitted two at a time would do as well.

  • My favorite travel project…. anything on circular needles with a simple repetitive pattern!

  • I prefer to crochet during travel, just in case I need to stop abruptly, for me, ‘mid-row pause’ is easier with crochet. Also, I make sure to have plenty of stitch markers :).

  • Everyday travel is socks or a simple shawl. Vacation travel is usually a brand-new project so I don’t run out before I get home!

  • I like to knit shawlettes when traveling…

  • For me it depends on what sort of travel I’m doing. I’ve been traveling for business semi-regularly, and have been enjoying the time spent on airplanes working on sweaters. For running around town, or shorter trips on public transit, I enjoy socks or cowls!

  • Any small koigu project!

  • I usually take a hat or scarf along with me but sonce we have a RV I do take larger projects on long trips.

  • I love having a shawl, because the rows are long if you are in a conversation and don’t want to focus on your knitting.

  • I’ll travel with anything small enough that I don’t have to wrestle with it. Circular needles are preferable so I don’t lose one. Most recently, it was a hat that inspired some envy in a fellow knitter who forgot to bring her own project to work on.

  • socks. portable and last a long time with my size 10 foot.

  • I usually take socks for car knitting! And plane knitting!

  • My favorite travel knit is dishcloths! They make a great gift when we get there.

  • My favorite travel knitting is socks. Or cowls in the round, if it’s a simple enough stitch pattern and not too many balls of yarn required.

  • from my experience, socks are the best travel project. I rarely finish them before I need another thing to work on. And, er, I can always tuck in an extra skein for the next pair!

  • Dishcloths. They are relaxing and don’t require too much brain power (assuming it’s a simple seed stitch).

  • When I’m traveling I love having a hat on the needles!

  • Mitts or a one sleep shawl with an easily memorized pattern.

  • socks and shawls are the perfect travel projects.

  • Baby gifts, but always willing to expand my horizons!!!

  • I travel with whatever is on my needles as long as it will fit in my bag! Cowls, hats, shawls, a sweater…just no complicated charts on a plane.

  • I always have a sock or a mitten in progress in my purse.

  • Just about anything I can fit on my lap. I’m an equal opportunity knitter. The yarn and shawl pattern are lovely.

  • I’m delighted with all knitting projects while traveling

  • Sadly, I don’t have a cool project to take with me. My standby for travel or all day conferences is the good old cotton dish cloth. Size 7 needles, some Dishie, peaches & cream, or ancient Red Heart tucked in my purse, and I am adding to my Christmas stash.

  • hat or shawl is my favorite travel knit

  • Hats. Easy and brainless so I can still watch the world go by my window.

  • Favorite for traveling? Scarf, shawl something like what you’re giving away – delicious supple yarns in simple repetitive patterns which pack away small and work up with minimal equipment. So, 2 sticks & a ball of string = Chantilly lace. Wherever your going, what a souvenir!

  • Choosing my travel knitting project is one of my favorite parts of getting ready for a trip. I like shawls and scarves, but now that I have a little grandson, small sweaters and toys show up on the list!

  • My favorite travel project is socks or a hat!

  • I usually take a shawl or hat to work on. Sometimes blanket parts if it’s knitted in sections.

  • I’ll knit anything, anywhere but I do find simple shawls or the arms or body of a mostly stockinette sweater to be good travel projects.

  • Socks, socks, socks!

  • Cowls for travel.

  • I keep a blanket square tucked into my knitting bag alongside my current project!

  • an easy repetitive shawl pattern with luscious yarn

  • Any one- or two-skein project is a good travel project for me. Nowadays that’s usually a cowl or shawl. Best is a low stress pattern, like something with just 2 alternating rows.

  • I have to take an easy project when I travel, socks, hats and cowls! If it fits in my purse it is coming with me!

  • I brought a cardigan kit to Austin over spring break because I was working on the easy part of the pattern. I would choose socks project but I’m in a cardigan mode this year! No idea why. Perhaps I like the challenges of cardigan patterns with their complexity. I’m looking forward to knit Mohonk yarns and Lana Plantae!!!

  • Something smaller like a hat or, if on a road trip, a stretch of stockinette knitting.

  • I like to knit patterns with few repeats so I don’t mess up the pattern. Scarves or hats are good travel projects.

  • socks of course!

  • Hello! My favorite travel projects are knitted hats and scarves.

  • My favorite traveling knit project is a baby hat done in leftover sock yarn. It’s a pattern I’ve made so many times I have it memorized, plus it uses so little yarn I don’t have to carry a ton. And it’s a great conversation starter! Everyone is intrigued by little teeny things 🙂

  • Socks.

  • My favorite travel knits are puppy bandanas and kippot. Both use up little bits of leftover yarn super well.

  • I love knitting sweater sleeves or a yoke while i’m traveling!

  • My favorite travel project is socks like so many others, but I’ve been known to haul an entire sweater with me if I’m getting close to the end.

  • I actually really like to take my shawls with me on the go as my travel knitting project!

  • I travel with at least two hats: a simple stockinette one, and a lace or fair isle one. I love knitting hats!

  • My favorite travel project is a scarf or cowl.

  • I tend to knit scarves or dishcloths, when traveling. Often, I have more than 1 project going at once.

  • I love something small and portable such as socks or fingerless gloves. Sometimes a single skein shawl also works well!

  • Travel projects need to be amenable to circular needles. So usually shawls but I did knit most of a jumper on a trip to China

  • I like to have a scary shawl thing going so I can just knit and not worry about turning a heel

  • My favorite is whatever I’m currently working on!!

  • I often make hats or small blankets for Knots of Love, while I’m traveling. they are eaasy to take along.

  • My favorite travel knitting is a lace shawl. Lots of knitting enjoyment per weight of project and yarn. Occasional lifelines a must!

  • Would have to be socks – so portable and you can make a lot of progress quickly.

  • Facecloths! I am slowly replacing all the store bought stuff with handmade heaven!

  • My favorite travel knit is ‘socks’

  • Like many of your readers, I’m a sock knitter! I love looking at socks on one of my beloveds’ feet and thinking, “Coming back from Denmark! Yes!”

  • Socks. They fit anywhere (purse, carryon) and they’re easy to pick up and put down.

  • Always a shall whail traveling…

    • I usually have a scarf or shawl on my needles when I travel.

  • Dishcloths and other projects that are small or in beginning stage

  • Scarf for travel knitting.

  • A not-too-complicated lace shawl on a circular needle. You get a lot of knitting mileage from the thin yarn and with a circular needle you minimize the risk of dropping a needle and having it roll under your travel companion’s seat.

  • I always have a sweater on needles that is up to the rows and rows of stockinette to finish the body (top down) . No need to worry about mistakes in pattern: can talk, knit and watch the scenery!

  • Fave travel project is socks. I have the pattern in my head….

  • I travel with a market bag or scarf in the works.

  • I probably take hats and socks the most. Easy to interrupt and small to pack!
