4 Summer Vacation Projects to Knit or Crochet

August has always been one of my favorite months for one reason: summer vacations. The last month of summer vacation for many school children, August is a month to get out and enjoy free time with family and see new and exciting things together. If you're like me, this also means planning what projects to take along, and what projects you'll work on while you're there. These 4 projects are great to make while you are traveling, and will be excellent items to have on hand as you pack for your next adventure.

Summer Vacation Photo Album Cover The Summer Vacation Photo Album Cover is perfect for holding all the photos from a summer of excitement, and is also a great pattern for a scrapbook or journal cover. Since the pieces are small and worked separately, the project is a great one to work on while you travel. Assemble it once you return home and fill it with all the images and momentos of your vacation.
Sweet Dreams Travel Pillow You can rest easy with the Sweet Dreams Travel Pillow to keep you comfortable napping or relaxing on a plane or long ride. Make it in Superwash Merino Cashmere or Nature's Choice Organic Cotton or  for added luxury on your journey.
Blue Skies Accessories Bag The Blue Skies Accessories Bag is an excellent project to crochet while traveling, and a perfect accessory caddy to carry with you once you're finished. Decorate it with the trees and bird if you like, or ou can get creative and decorate it with a scene from your favorite vacation.
Travelin' Man Shoe Covers Keeping shoes secure and scuff-free is easier with Travelin' Man Shoe Covers. A pair of shoe covers makes an excellent travel-sized project, and the finished project is great to have on hand when you're ready to head out on your next venture. They make a perfect gift for any friend or family member who loves to travel.

    I enjoy lightweight shawls and other small pieces for travel knitting.  They fit in the small space you have while traveling and can be easily packed if you finish while you are away.

    I have started taking sections of larger lace patterns and crochet or knit motifs from fingering yarn and crochet cotton.  When I get several finished I stitch them to plain ready made clothes and have a new embelished wardrobe for the next season or fancy events.

    I am really into knitting socks. They are small, portable and fit in my purse.  Don't need an excuse to bring yarn on vacation, do it all the time. Leaving Wednesday and I've already got a new project ready to go. 

  • Angela Rowlands

    We always holiday in a caravan, so I usually take my ufo's with me and try to finish them, They also make
    the car journey shorter as well.

    I already started a crocheted doily, but I'm also finishing a granny square aphgan.

    I like to try out new techniques so I bring along yarns and threads with my crochet hooks and make pot holders, hot pads and place mats for our travel trailer. These projects are great samplers and get some use afterwards. Some of the techniques I have learned are mosaic crochet and knit and entrelac crochet.
