Paris Knitting

A dream of mine would be knitting while sitting in the morning light, streaming in through the beautiful stained glass windows of Sainte Chapelle in Paris. Now, the knitting part is new, but ever since I first heard of the existance of this chapel, I knew I had to go there.

I've realized I just can't get any older and not go to Europe. The plans are in motion for me to go in the spring of 2007. I want to pack as lightly as possible, and so hauling knitting gear around just isn't an option (...or is it?) :)

My boyfriend said "you won't be knitting there, will you?" He's rather sick of it, seeing as how the craft has hijacked my life since I started about 2 years ago. He pretty much suffers it in silence, but I know he has a point about not knitting while there. I don't want to miss anything.

But...

Knitting has this magical quality of absorbing the atmosphere around it, and I'd love to have a garment/item with Paris infused into it! Quite the dilemma, I must say.

I think that if you are the type who takes her knitting everywhere with her...than it should also go to Paris. If not than you might consider leaving it home.

Thanks for the points. I do take it with me whenever I know I'll have time to kill and a comfortable space to knit. It's rather cumbersome, though!
He's pretty much convinced me to leave it at home, but there's months yet for me to change my mind...
