Planes, trains and automobiles

Amanda and I are off to TNNA in the morning. If all of our travel plans work out, we'll be at Unwind in LA by 7:00 for an event with Jess, Casey and Mary-Heather from Ravelry and Dawn and Kelly from Namaste. It's going to be a hoot. Keep your fingers crossed that the weather cooperates.

There will be lots of airport and train time tomorrow because the trip up to LA and Unwind is kind of a last minute thing and we already had the plane tickets to San Diego. So once we arrive in SD, we're hopping an Amtrak up there for the event and then back south when it's over. It's going to be a long day, but one of those fun long days where you get to see lots of people and meet new friends!

Time to start putting together the knitting projects for the trip. Right now I have two things but I think I better grab a third.

The first thing going in the bag is a skein of Shepherd Sport in Echo. I'm going to make a Mountain Stream sock with it. It's a pattern Judy Sumner designed for us a few years back and I've been meaning to make a pair for awhile and somehow it just got put on the back burner.

The second thing for me is going to be a scarf made from a new yarn...I'll give you more details when I return from market. Here's a quick shot of the yarn. The scarf is a lacy thing that we're doing as a kit. Kenny Chua designed it for us. Kenny is a real gem. We've worked with him on a couple of projects and we can't say enough good things about him. The scarf has to be finished by the time we get to Unwind. Should be a piece of cake. (Famous last words.)

Now I better find one more thing....or I could wait until the show and see if there's anything there I can't live without.

Amanda is bringing Shepherd Sport in a custom color we did for Knit, a shop in Charleston, SC. She's got a pair of socks going on the needles as soon as she finishes up the shrug she's wearing on Friday. No pressure.
