This is what I have crammed into my knitting bag (and I've been wanting a bigger knitting bag for a bit now):
- One knee-length hooded cardigan (I figure 2 100g balls of yarn should get me through until I get home. I might take a third if I get nervous before I leave the house.
- One pair of socks in Trekking, toe up, to be knit until the end of the ball.
- One pair of socks in On Your Toes DK, toe up.
- One scarf, 3/4 knit already.
- One neckwarmer (Tudora)
- One Sally the Eco-Fairy
I have strictly told myself that I do not need to bring any more yarn for socks with me. Every now and then, I find myself carrying a ball of yarn towards the bag, and I snap out of it and put it back. The Trekking sock on the needles right now has taken me weeks already, so I have no worries that I will run out of sock to knit, but still...
All I can say is, at least yarn's light.
