editor’s note

Traveling is my special little bubble where time is suspended, providing a peak-knitting environment. It’s a welcome break from the ever-constant worry of wasting time—finally, a chance to slow down and enjoy. My knitting bubble is indescribably wonderful. I put my yarn and project in my lap, start an exciting podcast or soothing album, and the world melts away. When I need to rip out an hour of work, there’s no meltdown, no exasperated sigh, nothing!

Our Jetsetter story (page 10) features seven projects so…

A TIP BEFORE YOU BEGIN Even though mistakes are inevitable, you can minimize the possibility of errors by knitting a swatch to familiarize yourself with the lace pattern before you begin the project. Working the lace pattern over a few stitches will help you to discover where you are most likely to make a mistake. That way, you will be especially alert at those trouble spots…
