My next choice for travel knitting was the Leavened Bread pattern, also from Fall Interweave. We won't talk about how long it took me to realize the pattern name was a play on the fact that it utilizes brioche stitch. I immediately imagined it in Manos, so off I went for the Manos find this great purple/pink colorway (see, I can break out of the ocean color family). I also bought a skein of solid pink which I may throw in at the sleeves.
The pattern referred you elsewhere for the stitch instructions so I asked Mr. Google and found one that worked for me. But I love the yarn and I like the way it looks with this pattern. I also decided to knit it in the round, but put a little rib on each side just to put in a smidge of stability. (I'm not sure how sound that theory really is, but, it's working for me.)
