The perplexing issues of preparing and packing for vacation are two-fold.
1. When will I have time to pack (and do laundry prior to packing)? What will the weather be like to decide what to pack? I have to pack for my children too! This adds a bit of stress!
2. Which knitting projects will I take with me? I'm sure I'll buy some yarn at my new destination (one can hardly resist it), and I'm just not sure what to take with me. Now these are the kind of decisions I love to make. I wonder if they could be part of my job, or somehow figured into the work equation?
PS - I just ordered some Wollmeise yesterday, and I'm crossing my fingers that it will arrive in time for the trip! I'd love to do a pair of socks in that yarn (like it's not already in my stash, but the colors I have so far (in stash) are of a blue hue - and you can see that I just knit a lot of blue, and I was hoping to knit a more "Fallish" color). The colors that I ordered from the Wollmeise are: Farn, Raku-regenbogen, Granaptefel, and Rhabarber. I'm really anxious to see the colors and receive my package - I hope it gets here soon! :)
PPS - I'm also trying to finish the dishcloth shawl before I go, which is knit in the blue/green/purple colorway....so I'm aching to knit some brown/orange/red yarn! :)
