CH 7: Knitvent and travelling with kids

Today I’m looking forward to the Pom Pom Quarterly Christmas Party.

I talk about Knitvent 2013 and patterns 3 and 4 out this week.

I also talk at some length about travelling with kids ahead of our big flight to Australia in just over a week’s time.

What’s in the WIP?

Two patterns for Curious Knitvent were released this week:

Fresh Powder Cowl

Stardust Infinity Scarf

You can pick up the collection of 8 patterns for the steal price of $9 here:


I am also stalking some patterns in the new issue of Knitty just out:

The Simple Life

Travelling with kids (long haul)

I mention Leo Babauta’s blog Zen Habits and his post on travelling light.

Please let me know in the comments or on the Curious Handmade Ravelry board if you have any tips for travelling with kids.
