Vacation Knitting, Day 1

I'm working on a pair of longies for Khloe on some beautiful yarn I got in a shorties for yarn swap on Hyenacart. It's from Retro Baby, and it's bulky Merino, called "OOAK Rainbow".

OOAK Rainbow

I love this yarn! It's so squishy and soft, and it begs to be petted! The variegation in the yarn is perfect; very little pooling, and so many colors...they will go with everything.

We left this morning on vacation, and there will be several times this week where I will be "blessed" (at least that's how I'm choosing to look at it) with large chunks of knitting time. I have three projects, and it's a good thing. I started these beautiful longies, only to realize that I only brought one skein of the yarn! So I'll get them down to just past the gusset, then I'll have to put them aside. More on the next project some time tomorrow, I'm sure.
