I was wondering what knitting projects people here like to take with them on vacation. My family and I are not long back from a vacation to South Africa and I brought a phone/ipod/anything you like roughly the same shape cover in progress and a round dish cloth. I completed the dish cloth, apart from sewing it up - it was done on 2 straight needles - and the other project turned out to be just the right size for my daughter's DS Lite. I managed to knit her a cover for her ipod as well, so she was very happy.
I tend to bring only small projects away with me, to save space in my suitcase, but I must remember to take a knitter's needle with me next time.
