Family, Knitting

Road Trip Knitting

Last weekend, my family and I traveled to Pickerington, Ohio to celebrate my Grandmotherβ€˜s 80th birthday!
We threw her a surprise party…

Surprise!

Grandma’s stories are the best!

It was so great to see her laughing and smiling and telling stories!

We were able to spend time with family members that we don’t often get to see!

Melody & Aunt Peggy are such jokesters!

My sister, Hannah & brother-in-law, Everitte…

Since the trip is about 8.5 hours one way, I packed lots of knitting & crocheting to keep me busy!

Knitting in the car is definitely not as easy as it sounds!

It’s bumpy and swervy no matter how good a driver you have at the wheel…

…But it’s still a huge chunk of mostly uninterrupted knitting time, which is fabulous and nearly unheard of for me lately! Even with vast numbers of bumps and swerves, knitting can get me through just about anything! ☺️

What about you? Do you knit in the car on long trips? Why or why not? Do you have any tips or tricks to share with us for dealing with the bumpiness of the car ride while knitting?

  1. Great, I love family get togethers and surprise parties. Awesome pictures, that will keep great memories.
    I always try and knit on long trips, although I don’t take projects with a fine pattern or delicate yarn. I’ll settle for some of my more bulkier knits, works pretty well when the roads are bumpy.
    Lovely knitting you have going there, love it. πŸ™‚
