I am so disappointed. I was all set to get up before the crack of dawn -- waaaaay before -- and get on a plane tomorrow at 6:15 to go to NYC. My team at work had planned a meeting where all of us would meet next Monday and Tuesday. I had decided to fly in early. I had BIG plans. First off, I would have brunch with my niece Erica. Then I'd head into Manhattan for the 2011 NYC Yarn Crawl, where I would do what else?? -- BUY yarn of course. I even contemplated going to the Yankees vs Tigers baseball game.
But it all went kaput when the meeting got cancelled and moved back a few weeks. Darn, darn, darn. I even had my suitcase out, my travel size toiletries, and set aside my clothes. I wound several skeins of yarn into center-pull balls so I'd have plenty to knit with over the next several days.
You know what the say about the best laid plans, right? Never fear. I will have plenty of things to keep me busy this weekend. Now I have time to work on my double faced wool jacket, which is cut out but needs to be constructed. I also can knock off a couple of felted hats. For retail therapy today, I bought two new patterns at Ewe-Nique Knits: Square Peg, an updated poncho, and Bubbles, a really cute kids' hat pattern. As if I needed more patterns, or projects, or things to keep me occupied. Both patterns are available on Ravelry, and if you don't know what Ravelry is, leave me a comment and I can point you in the right direction!
It's going to be a chilly night tonight -- right now it's 41º -- I just might have to kick on the furnace. I was hoping to hold off until October but I guess we're almost there, right?
Hope you have a great weekend, wherever you are.
