We're actually having a summer this year!

It's getting on for 30C this weekend, with no rain in sight. We've been eating outside whenever possible, and since it's light until ten o'clock, this is easy. The past few weekends, The Limey has put the barbecue grill through its paces. Today, it had been warm enough that we couldn't bear to really cook, so dinner was three different salads. Next weekend, though, July 4th barbecue!

Meanwhile, this coming week, I'm in the US for work. Three days, three meetings, three states. In other words, I'm going to be spending a lot of time in airports and on planes. This is bad enough, but the real tragedy is: I have no good plane knitting! I'm looking through my stash and my projects, but nothing appeals. It can't be too complicated; I don't have time to swatch and plan for a new design before I leave; I don't have any other knitting on the go right now. I have one more day to figure it out, though.

That salad looks delicious. I love eating outdoors.
For plane knitting I can't go wrong with a pair of socks. Easy to transport, and less chance of needle confiscation using wooden dpns.
For pattern suggestions, I'd say use that yummy red Cherry Tree Hill sock yarn in your stash, and have a look here for patterns others have used it with:

Have a safe trip!
