WIP Wednesday: Travel Knitting

In the last week, I made a lot of progress on the three projects I took with my to Kansas City for the Ply Away retreat (click here if you missed Monday's recap!). Both socks saw some action, though the funky bent DPN socks are still kind of slow going:
I did, however, use my flight back to Chicago effectively by knitting the heel flap and turning the heel on my first Light Saber Green BFL sock:
The Brioche Cowl became my go-to project while traveling, since I have the stitch pattern memorized. It was the only thing I had to work on during a 3-hour visit to the ER (not for me, but for my Grandfather, who is thankfully ok despite taking a fall while I was in KC) - so you'd think it would be just about done, but such is the slowness of brioche, I guess!
I am going to try participating in #blanketmadness this week by adding to my Cozy Memories Blanket, which as of Sunday had 90 squares; honestly, if I can just add 1-2 each day, I'll be in better shape than I was before. This poor, neglected project...and speaking of neglected projects, I haven't added any stripes to Tyler's Royals socks, since they are strictly an at-home project. I did, however, start a fractal spinning project using some of the fiber I bought at Ply Away this past weekend. Here's the first ply of Polwarth/Silk from Huckleberry knits (this is the "Lark" colorway):
FYI, I don't have any FOs for later this week, so I'll see you back here next Monday. Thanks for stopping by!
