Why are vacations always not?

So, I'm getting ready to head out for vacation on Wednesday. I'm going back to roads once traveled and heading off for Maryland Sheep & Wool. While there, I'm going to visit a bunch of friends that I made while living in the area. It seems like my vacation is even more scheduled than my normal life.

Not something that I usually strive for when I go on vacation. I have a sneaking suspicion that I'm going to need a vacation when I get back...

So, I have cabled the scarf/shawl to deliver to the ladies of Just Our Yarn. I think it's been in the works for more than a year (in my defense, I moved across the continent during that year...not that that really made a huge difference in finishing time). I do need to finish the pattern for it. One of those things that I always hate doing.

I want to look for yarn to weave a runner while I'm at S&W. I'll probably be looking for greens and browns because that's the color of the room that it's destined for. Also colors that I tend to have a lot in the house, so it's likely to work no matter where the piece of furniture ends up.

I'm definitely ready for stash enhancement at S&W. I have been feeling a distinct lack of choices here, which probably doesn't say anything about the real choices, but says something about the availability of stuff in the DC area and from being near S&W every year. Mostly I miss the interaction and the creativity that it generated in me. I haven't found a good group to get creative with yet.

Ok, done whining for tonight.

You will have lots of fun this weekend and that schedule will go down the toilet with a mighty flush! Remember you can always sleep on the plane! Good luck finding that yarn. I can't wait to see the runner.

As things are right now, I won't know until Saturday at 5 am if I heading to S$W or to Ohio to move my crazy mom back to PA.
