All Aboard the Yarn Train

Only 2 more sleeps until Kate-the-Enabler and I head out to Rhinebeck! Woot! I can't wait, it's going to be great. You know, I realized the other day that, except for the time I visited my friend Nadine in Japan earlier this year, I've never had a genuine girls weekend? 2008 is turning out to be quite the year for personal growth.

We've got quite the weekend planned, actually. I've still got to take care of minor details like printing Google maps, choosing which knitting to bring along, and packing. I'm thinking I'm going to have to dip into my maternity wear for pants with expandable waistbands, the amount of eating we'll likely be doing. I'm not EVEN joking! Food is a major part of this weekend's festivities.

I'm going to bring the laptop with me, so if all goes well (read: if I can figure out how to plug into the wifi system at the Holiday Inn), I'll post something on Friday evening.

On the knitting front, I've officially pulled the Good Old Cabled Scarf out of hibernation and I'm making good progress. It's going to be lovely, me thinks, and a good scarf to go with the Snowball hat that I want to cast on for in the near future.

I'm also nearing completion on the second of my Miscellaneous-Man Socks. I've got to find another sock project for my commute knitting. I'll most likely dip into my pitifully small stash of self-striping sock yarn for the next pair. Stay tuned!

I'll leave you with a picture of Émilie, wearing her Halloween costume for this year (it's a unicorn, in case you were wondering). We picked it up at Wal-Mart on Monday, and she's been wearing it pretty much non stop ever since.

Happy Knitting Everyone! See you at Rhinebeck!

I'm so jealous. It looks like everyone but me is going to Rhinebeck this year! I hope you'll have fun!

That is the cutest Hallowe'en costume ever. So gorgeous! I'm getting stung for the big one this year - a Belle dress from the Disney store. Ah well, I'm only jealous as I'd have sold an arm for one when I was small.
Have fun at Rhinebeck! Shop till you drop and don't forget the Ravelry party!

You're leaving this weekend and still haven't packed knitting?!? For shame, madam! For shame!

Feeling Wintery, hey? It's a sunny 21 here today, and getting warmer each week. Had to buy Byron a shady hat yesterday and cover him with sunscreen!

Wish I could go to Rhinebeck, too. It's a bit far...

I only packed the night before we left to Rhinebeck - probably was a bad idea - LOL... as I ended up forgetting to pack underwear - LOL. Long story.

Love the unicorn costume!
