The schools have broken up and everyone is off on their holibobs! But how do you squeeze making into the back of the car, along with everything else?
This is why I love knitting. It’s so transportable. This was me last year, on the Isle of Wight. I’m wearing a Miette cardigan whilst knitting a Miette cardigan. (Which means that cardigan has officially been waiting a year now to have the buttons sewn on.)
If you do a bit of planning, you can also take some hand sewing on holiday with you.
I’m wearing my Tilly and the Buttons Bettine Dress.
If you’re attending one of the myriad summer festivals, you’ll likely find stalls set up to help you make – all you need to do is join in the fun.
And I’m most impressed by a sewing pal who recently took a John Lewis mini sewing machine to Frankfurt, Germany with her to complete a baby quilt for her friend. Now, that’s dedication.
Unbelievably, this entire quilt was sewn in a hotel room in Frankfurt.
Please do remember that you are allowed to take knitting and crochet needles onto planes. Yes, really!
Tell me. How do you incorporate making into your holidays away from home?
