I nearly always make a packing list, even for weekend trips. The times I’ve not used one are the times I’ve forgotten something. So here goes:

You are correct — there are no handknitted socks on that list. The only shoes to wear with socks that I’m bringing are my running shoes.
I’m pretty sure all that could fit in a carry on and my messenger bag, but I’m going to go ahead & check a bag. I’ll be flying on Jet Blue for the first time, and they allow one free checked bag, and I figure I’m going to be coming back with more than I’m bringing.
I’m going to start packing today, just to see how everything fits. All knitting, of course, goes in the carry on, as do all my electronics, meds, and one change of clothes.
