Perfect travel knitting would be ...
- simple enough to put down and pick-up at a moment's notice
- interesting enough to not be boring.
My current nominee is Celery Stalked's Inspira Cowl. I took it to Iowa and back to attend Tom's 50th high school reunion weekend. It traveled beautifully.
Inspira cowl is a big circle of ribbing in two yarns. In the case of mine, it's one solid yarn and one lightly variegated, one DK-weight and one fingering. It hits every one of the three musts of travel knitting: it's portable, simple, and interesting.
Bonus: no two Inspira Cowls look the same. This is the one I'm making now up close ...
