I knit and crochet

I knit and crochet....but not with Airstream Life. When we travel and go with our Airstream we enjoy a different type of life.

We don't enjoy the SAME things we do enjoy at home. We enjoy the sites, travel, friends, conversations, ....the Airstreal Living.

For us it is R&R and enjoyment with other Airstreamers.

One of our "silver sisters" has a knitted wash cloth with an Airstream image. You might enjoy working on that. ~G

Airstream cozy?

Here's an ambitious project, a bus cozy. Wouldn't an Airstream cozy look cool? Improve insulation for winter camping, too.

Not sure how you clean it, though. . .

I love to knit & crochet while traveling; my favorite patterns to work on are neck scarves, hats, and baby blankets or lap afghans (all because they're not so bulky and are easy to handle). I always carry a few small projects along!

AS cozy

Now that would be an ambitious project. I can see some of the silvery yarn being put to work. Very cute. Wonder how much yarn that would take??? LOL I say go for it!

I have been crocheting blocks using afghan stitch and I intend to put 3D butterflies on some of them. And I have some thread crochet going on too. This is a good time of year to get out the projects and get to work.

One serious knit freak here. I always have a project (or two or three) happening. I admit I don't knit alot when I am with my Airstream peeps because I'd rather enjoy their company but when its time to snuggle up in the trailer I immediately pick up the needles again.

I also love to knit two at a time socks on magic loop. Doing two at a time changed my life, now I have so many pairs of hand knit socks. Just gave a pair to a friend for her birthday, she was so excited.

For any of you ladies who might be in the Arizona area I get together with a group of ladies for Knit N Camp twice a year. This is not an Airstream event but so much fun. We pick a spot either here in the valley or up north, camp for the weekend, knit and visit a local yarn shop. The info is on Ravelry under Arizona Knitters thread. If you're a knitter and not on Ravelry yet I highly recommend it! Needless to say this is not a fun weekend for men folk so we leave them at home.

Happy knitting and see you down the road~ Julianne

I am a voracious crochet-er, something I took up late in life and taught myself out of a book at WalMart. It is so relaxing, easy to do in a small space and gives me a simple creative outlet.

I do large projects (such as blankets and afghans) at home, dishcloths and such when we travel or are camping. There are such incredibly beautiful variegated cottons out there for kitchen items, they can become small works of art with the colors and look so pretty as you use them.

Dishcloths tend to multiply quickly, so I give them away to family, friends and friendly fellow campers so as to have room for more! It's a good thing.

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

I've crocheted for years but am a fairly recent knitter. Haven't attempted socks yet (looks complicated) but would love to. Maybe I'll find a class!

I usually crochet or knit while on the road or once settled in for the night. I'm reminded of great trips when I look at some of those projects.

I am also in a knit/crochet prayer shawl group which makes hats, afghans, shawls, etc. for community members, military, and a children's hospital in our area. While traveling I've found wonderful yarn shops & great yarn bargains for our group!

Super-Scarves for Superbowl 2012

I'll be working on a scarf for a volunteer at the 2012 Super Bowl hosted by the city of Indianapolis, and our NFL franchise, the COLTS!. That is, if there is a football season in 2011!

Volunteers will be given these scarves for the cold weather. The city is excited for the chance to host this big party.

Knitters will hand in their scarves and the NFL will add an official patch to each scarf. Due date is in November 2011.

I suppose if there is no Super Bowl, we'll get to keep the scarf.

Colors are approved by the organizers, Colts blue and white. I bought my yarn today at Mass Ave Knit Shop. Other knit shops and all of the public libraries are also making supplies available.

Patterns can vary, can't include a team logo, but can include footballs and other related symbols.

It's a fun way to get the community involved, and share some Midwest hospitality.
