Travel knitting

I was thinking I could use the small bit of chenille left from the scarf and some black yarn I got in a swap to make simple but fancy fingerless mitts or even gloves. Just one problem: the black yarn is really black, highlighting the essential brownness of even the darkest, most nearly black parts of the scarf. Too bad--it seemed like the ideal travel project. So I'm taking along the bit of chenille (so small, really, I can easily tuck it into my purse) with the road-to-stash-paving intention of taking it with me to visit midcoast Maine's yarn shops.

But I still need to pick a real project. Ribbed vest, perhaps?
