This week I leave for Columbus to go to TNNA (The National Needlearts Association) to buy for Fall 2010 yarn, needles, notions, books, meeting authors and checking out lots of other goodies....but mostly the yarn .....oh the yummy yarn. Yes, its true I get excited and even moved by yarn. I'm sure there is something that I can take for this.... but..... why?
Aside from anticipations of all the new things that we will offer this fall, there is that special anticipation of taking a well deserved break at jeni's ice cream. I can't wait to try the Queen City Cayenne Ice Cream, its fashioned after Cincinnati style chili ( what could be better than that). Check out the description.... "Rich chocolate reveals a wallop of back-of-the-throat spice. Finish is tingly and complex." That's what I'm talking about!
Besides packing for the trip, getting the desperately needed haircut and mani/pedi; there is the bigger desicion.... determining which knitting projects to take. Seriously!
Definitely have to finish knitting Katie's Heather Socks...... sadly I will be in Columbus for her birthday but plan to celebrate it when I get back. This is sock #1, so I'm planning on getting it finished so I can give it to her when I return and celebrate her birthday. So socks are the priority,.
Secondly, I definitely want to make some progress on my fishing net inspired shawl. And lastly, I am also planning on taking a variety of yarn to do some preliminary swatching for some of my new design ideas.
But getting the socks finished are a MUST. I also reserve the right to sneak a stray wip in the ole knitting bag..... a girl just has to be prepared.
