As the post title states: I Am So Ready!!! That would be ready for vacation. YAY. Today is my last day of work this week and I am off all next week as well. Fingers crossed that weather will cooperate as we are heading out in our camper for a little bit. Of course, I need to pack for all weather events - cold, heat and everything in between. That's the one downside of camping in the Spring and Fall, but those are our favorite times to get away.
Before I go, a little knitting update. There has not been a lot of knitting, but a little bit:
The plain vanilla sock in Cascade Heritage - colorway is Baltimore. I'm really enjoying this very relaxing knit. I'll do about 5 more rows or so and then be on the heel flap. This will be going with me on our camping trip.
Believe it or not, I didn't put that Green Mountain Spinnery yarn into time out. I cast on a different shawl:
So far the yarn seems to like this pattern and it has been behaving. The pattern is Winter Sea Shawl - a free pattern on Ravelry. I probably will not take this with me. I'm attempting to learn to not take too much knitting. I like to have choices, but I always take way more than I ever work on. And with camping, space is somewhat limited.
On the reading front, my Kindle is loaded up and that will be going with me. Recently downloaded from Overdrive are: "The Great Alone" by Kristin Hannah and "Bruno Chief of Police: A Mystery of the French Countryside" by Martin Walker. I'm not sure where I heard about that last, but it is a series that (wherever I saw it) received high ratings. The "real" book I am reading at night is "What She Ate" by Laura Shapiro which is pretty good so far.
I'll be reading your blogs on my phone, but I may not comment - sometimes that's awkward on my phone and I'm not taking a laptop or tablet. Enjoy the next week and a half and I'll check in when we are back in town.
