When I travel, I like to travel light. Especially since the cost of carrying luggage has risen so much. So when I travel to visit my daughter, I generally don't take any luggage because little by little I have left clothes and accessories at her house so I can just pick up my purse and get on the plane.
One thing that makes me doubt whether I should pay for at least a carry-on is my desire to continue working on my crafting projects. Honestly, being on vacation for me, means lots of crochet time, so I want to take all my projects. But, what if they get lost or damaged?
Over the years, I have made my crochet time an important part of my daily routine. It is either, the first thing I do in the morning, the last thing I do at night or, let's face it, on some days I just spend all day crocheting.
One reason for this is that, over time, I have also accumulated a lot of yarn. For several years now, I have been going through a minimization phase in my life, so getting rid of all that hoarded yarn was a priority. I can't imagine what my husband would do with all of it if I suddenly wasn't around anymore. And with everything happening around the world, unexpectedly leaving it is not such a farfetched idea for anyone.
To work with ones hands is to be a laborer; to work with ones hands and brain is to be a craftsman; but to work with ones hands, brain and heart is to be an artist. - Louis Nizer
