I wasn't particularly excited about a car trip this weekend (although I wanted to go), and then I remembered...car knitting!! So tonight I set out to be prepared.
First, I wound two balls of lace for the lace coat:
I wound two balls because part of the pattern needs to be worked double stranded. I decided if there is any colour difference between balls it would be safer to work with two balls than to work from two ends of the same ball and then have a sudden change when I had to start a new ball.
I've printed the corrected charts from the Vogue Knitting website (advantage of not being the first one to knit the pattern), have my new cable needles, and should be set to go.
I also have my vest ready for some new work. I have ripped out and reknit the back. It is looking much better:
And for the times when I don't feel up to thinking, charting, or keeping track of where I am in a pattern, I can continue on my bias scarf:
And just in case, I'll throw in these socks too. (You never know.)
