What to pack?

I’m heading down to DC for work this week. Unlike last week to CA, my flights will be short. However, I think I’ll have a lot more down time in the evenings. So I need to pick another project to take.

Last week’s travel project was a pair of socks for my sister in Koigu. They used up some of the stash I got in the orgy, but the project called for an extra ball, which I bought and now may not need. However these will be done quickly, maybe even tonight, so they can’t be the only project.

I could bring Charlotte, but she’s growing out of the needle she’s on. And the needle she needs is in Zig Zag, which needs some TLC so I can start the sleeves. So it looks like I might start another Clapotis. I’ll have to see what I get done tonight.

Here’s my sisters socks. They match the Shawl Collar Jacket I made her last year. It’s the Crusoe sock pattern from Knitty, only I’m working them toe up with an afterthought heel.

Here’s the front of the socks:

This is the back. You can see the purple rows that I worked where heel will go. I’ve got about 2 or 3 more inches on the ankle portion before I’m finished.

And here’s a close-up of the stranding pattern:
