Well, my bags are pretty much packed and I am ready to head to St. Louis for The Loopy Ewe Spring Fling! I am very excited! I am picking up my rental car at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow morning and leaving shortly after that. (Steve will be driving down Thursday to spend the weekend with Sheri's husband and will drive me home Sunday. Isn't he a great guy?) Of course driving means that I can overpack, which I tend to do. This is my suitcase that just has knitting projects and yarn in it!
I woke up very early this morning (3:00 a.m.) with my mind racing with everything that I needed to get done today. I knew I was trying to do too much when I used nail polish remover to take off my eye make-up and mailed my To-Do list. I knew the only cure was a Triple shot latte at Starbucks!!
On my To-do list was washing some of my hand knit socks to bring along. Here they are drying. I'll be sad when it becomes too warm to wear these. Wait. What am I saying. I love it when it's warm. There will be no sadness when warm weather finally comes!
I also decided I had better get my 'homework' done for the classes that are being offered at the Fling by Wendy and Cookie A. Here is my homework for Wendy's class. We'll be learning her technique for turning the heel of a sock. I have yet to cast on my homework for Cookie's class, but I think I can get it done in time.
Sumo would love to come to the Fling, but since he hasn't learned to knit yet, he will be staying behind and guarding the house. He has one of R&M's friends watching over him, so he will be well cared for.
Looks like the weather will be in the 70's with some rain later in the week. I'm packing my fun fleece that Sheri gave me for Christmas. I may make some people jealous, but Sheri does have T-shirts and sweatshirts that are now available (or will be shortly) so I think it will be ok.
Well, I 'm going to rack my brain and try to remember what else was on my 'To-Do' list. You don't suppose the mailman who finds my list will be willing to finish up any items I've forgotten??
I'll be bringing my laptop and hope to update my blog from the Fling. (Time permitting!) If not, I'll have lots to share next week.
Until Next Time...
