Travel knititng

With Dave's birthday socks done, I needed something small and portable in my travel project bag.  I wasn't in the mood for another pair of socks, so I went stash diving for something different.
I didn't have to dive too deep. Mom spun me this lovely 3-ply yarn not too long ago. It was a superwash merino fleece from Nest, and the colourway is Love Apple. I decided the perfect way to show it off would be to knit Going My Way.

We're in the middle of a heat/humid wave, and cowl weather is way far off... but this is mostly travel knitting, so by the time I actually finish it, we should be getting some cooler weather.

It will be gorgeous!!! I love the color way. I hear you on the light knitting. I am avoiding anything large, and half the time prefer to just do hats!
