Knitting While Traveling

I own three sizes of addi Flexiflip needles, they’re like a hybrid between a circular needle and double pointed needles. I bought them in sizes 6, 7 and 8. The sizes I seem to use the most for hats and sweaters anticipating using them for sleeves. I ordered them online since my local yarn shop sold out of them very quickly and waited patiently for them to arrive due to backorder. I packed them with me on my flight to Vegas so I could finish that one sleeve I had left for my test knit…

Only one needle made it to Las Vegas. I’m pretty sure they probably came out of my bag as I was looking for a crochet hook to fix a dropped stitch. And to make it even worse…that one needle didn’t even make it back from Vegas! I lost it somewhere in our hotel suite (we stayed at the Venetian and it was absolutely beautiful). I found one pair left on Amazon and ordered them and they sent me size 3’s by mistake! Clearly I’m not meant to have these.

On the bright side it gave me an excuse to go to Sin City Knit Shop to buy double points and of course some yarn. I grabbed some of the Katia cotton and merino blend yarn I’ve wanted to try and some of their local yarn in a fun colorway. Perhaps these will become a fun brioche project? The shop was nice and had tons of people knitting in there! I love visiting warm and welcoming spots. I’d definitely say give them a visit if you’re in Vegas.
