Vacation plans

Yesterday marked Dan's first day of vacation, so good on that. we've been taking it real easy - getting ready for our little trip out to Hershey, PA tomorrow. Jackson is already at the breeder's for his vacation as well. I've got to start thinking about packing - it's maybe a 5 hour road trip... we're only staying for 3 days so I'm not worried about clothes - it's the knitting! Do I bring the socks? hats? hope-and-donald scarf? Something completely different? Do I bring 1 project? What if I get bored? Do I bring more projects? Still need to think it over.

Thursday was supposed to be "hat day" - I was going to work on a pixie hat using bulky yarn from my stash, a second baby hat and a chemo hat for my gram. Well, I didn't wind the yarn for gram's hat because I'm not sure about the color. I didn't start the second baby hat because I didn't print out all the pages of the pattern. And I didn't read the pattern / yarn label carefully on the pixie hat and ran short on the yardage (pattern called for 80 yards. my skein had 35 yards. groan). So it was kind of a bust, but I pushed onward and dug out the berrypatch pattern (I printed out in 2004!). I have gotten through the crust brim, and am about ready to start on the filling, but the pattern is somewhat confusing to me. I started to sift through it and then got distracted by putting the knitting all over the dog. He is such a good sport.

take it all. even if you don't touch any of it, it's comforting to have it there, just in case.
