All packed up

My hubby and I are hitting the road at 5am to begin our 12 hour trek to Ottawa. I'm very excited to go back up to Ottawa. It seems it's been too long. We used to live there so still have friends up there. Two of our friends are getting married on Saturday so that's the highlight of the trip.

My knitting is all packed. Clothes are still in the dryer but at least I have my priorities straight.

I'm bringing 5 projects:

  1. Toe up socks

  2. Montego Bay scarf

  3. Sweet Pea socks

  4. Cabled Footies
  5. Vneck Vest
Also threw in an extra ball of sock yarn and some handspun I'm planning to make a scarf with.

I think I'm as excited about the 12 hours of knitting each way as I am about actually getting there.

Better go finish my packing and get to bed. Have great week everyone and hopefully when I get back I'll have a bunch of FOs to show.

You should get lots of knitting done in 12 hours! Hope you enjoy your trip!

BTW, I've gotten a new (and hopefuly an operational) e-mail address:

Your Pal!

Are you sure you have enough knitting for such a long knitting trip? You're averaging 37/week FO, and that's with working full time...

Have a safe and producting trip to Ottawa.

I laughed at your list of projects to take, given that you are going to see friends that you don't see often... Until I realized I'm taking 5 projects with me for a 5 day trip to Newfoundland to visit relatives I don't see that often and there is no driving involved... Sigh, what have you gotten me into...

Little note for the cable booties. If you follow the pattern for the smallest size (which fits a 7-8 size woman's foot), don't knit the decrease in the toe all the way down to 8 stitches. Check my blog, you end up with an elf toe. I did the second one down to 16 stiches and the toe was nice and rounded.

From the podcasts I've heard lately, the Montego Bay scarf is the latest "must do" project! I still haven't done a Jaywalker sock or a Chevron scarf... I'm so behind!
