So pack your suitcase, your cooler and your yarn. These projects, which will bring great joy to the little nerds-in training in your life, are a mix of knit and crochet projects of varying skill levels. Happy crafting!

So what do you say, crafters? Do you use the lazy days of summer to get your knit on?
Oh, and a pro tip: Try not to make anything larger than a baby blanket while you're traveling. I knitted a full-sized afghan on one road trip, and it took me forever to get in and out of the car because I had to untangle myself from the yarn, disentangle myself from the heavy afghan sitting on my lap, and try to cram the entire unwieldy blanket into a bag. It made bathroom breaks and junk food pit stops much longer and more complicated. Small projects are best!
