Holiday crochet project?

I have the concentration span of a gnat and need a little crochet project to keep me from insanity on a 2 week pool/beach holiday.

Not keen on shawls/scarf. There is a limit to how many one person needs.
Sock yarn is good as it takes longer to make and less to pack, but open to anything really.

Any suggestions please?

I mean, i can concentrate on crochet but sitting by a pool for 23 weeks will drive me bats if i dont have something to distract me

Little square pads that you can use as re-usable make-up removers / face cloths .

What about granny squares while you're there, then you can join them on the journey home?

I’m in the middle of granny square stash busting. I’ll probably be done before the holiday

Amigurumi patterns are small but intricate so might work on the whole less to pack but still fiddly enough to be interesting front?

All the bits for a wreath? You could make all the shapes and assemble it when you get home.

I'm currently crocheting an amigurami nativity set which is a really interesting and very portable project but I suspect all the different yarns and the stuffing required would take up too much room in your luggage.

A wreath bits is a fab idea. I did a nativity last year, so cute.,

Clothes and sunblock in hand luggage. 15kg of yarn room in the suitcase grin

Is that the 5 Little Monsters nativity? That's the one I'm working on - it's really cute.

A wreath is a good idea. I might do that for my holiday

Scripto Mon 17-Jun-19 21:20:37

It is yes. I need 3 kings, a gang of shepherds, a whole bunch of angels, a camel and assorted other authentic nativity kind of stuff.
