My bags are packed, I'm ready to go

We leave for vacation in T-minus 24 hours. And yes. The knitting is packed.

I'm taking all my current WIPs, and the yarn for them, plus the yarn for the Log Cabin Blanket. But I needed some "just in case" yarn. You know. In case I manage to finish all my current projects. (Really. I can hear you. Stop laughing.)

Yarn for the cute felted sheep.

Yarn for Ene's scarf, Cabled footies from One Skein, Koigu for Jaywalkers and footies, a fresh ball of Trekking, Regia surf for "just in case" socks, and yarn for Branching Out.

My patterns are mostly gathered. I just need to grab some needles and I'll be ready to go!

I'll try to post from the road, but I don't know if we'll have access. If we don't I'll see you in about a week!

ETA: I am such a wanker! I keep forgetting to mention Jen's plan to "Read What You Have" for the month of July. No library books. No borrowed books. Read what's already on your shelf. Can we do it? Maybe. Especially if we ignore the two library books I've already started and won't be able to finish by tomorrow. But aside from them, I'm in! I've got tons of books just begging to be read. Off to chose some for the trip.


  1. Have a wonderful time . . . get lots of knitting done . . . and take lots of pictures!!

    Have a great time on your trip! Thank you for mentioning Jen's plan. I went over and introduced myself. :)

  3. Have a great vacation! I hope you get plenty of knitting time. And it's always better to have too much yarn than not enough.

  4. Have an awesome vacation! I should totally do Jen's plan. I have PLENTY of stuff that I could read. If I wanted to make it really challenging I could swear off buying magazines too.

    Have a great trip and Happy Knitting (reading, too!)

  6. Wow, your vacation yarn is stunning!

    Heh, I so cannot do the read what you have thing this month, based on my place on the library's list for the new Stephanie Plum...

    Have a great vacation!

  7. Have a great trip!

    I'm (trying) to do a similar thing about my knitting books - using what I have. It'd work better if I had time to knit, but that's a different issue!
