The Weekend is Here!

Ok. I have a bunch of work to finish up before we can hop in the truck and leave town for the weekend, but I am so close! Here's what we will be up to:

We are heading to Austin and will stay at Barton Creek Resort. A book publisher is working with my husband, so the entire family gets to go. We won't be working, unlike Bruce, so I see lots of fun. Spa time, swimming time, margarita time... need I say more?

The other plus to Austin is that I will finally get to visit Hill Country Weavers. This is supposed to be a super yarn store. They have my yarn on order for my poncho, so I will check on that. Plus I might pick up a few more things... Who knows?

Packing knitting for the trip is a little tricky. I don't want to start my Klaralund until I finish up a few of the items that are lurking in my bag. I'm a one or two project kind of person. I would be overwhelmed with more than that on the way. So, I think I will take my Colinette sweater along to see if the yarn store can suggest yarn to stitch it up. My daughter's poncho will go, as I need just a few more rows before I stitch it up and add the fun fur. That will probably be a fine project to work on while we are away. And I will take the evil bag, oh the felted bag that is just boring stockinette stitch. I really want that to be finished so I can try my booga bag in the gorgeous Kureyon that is sitting in my stash.

I have to warn you--I really, really want to buy both Jane Ellison Noro books. Keep your fingers crossed that Hill country has them...
