In Which the Pirate Presents Feline Friday.

“Do you think, if we blockade her bag, she won’t be able to leave?”

“I don’t know, man.”

“It’s worth a shot. Come on, I’ll take this side, you stretch out over there. She’ll never be able to get through us.”

“This has never worked before… but okay.”

I am heading off for a two week vacation! The hardest part of packing was choosing what knitting projects to bring. I’m just about up to the heel turn on the second of my traveling socks, so I decided to bring another skein of sock yarn with me. I chose the Periwinkle Sheep that I got at Rhinebeck last year, and I’m finally going to make Cakewalk socks for myself.

Then I thought, maybe that’s not enough. Maybe I should bring yarn for the fancy cabled kneesocks that I’ve been wanting to knit for years. Should it be Clessidra? Or Rhiannon?

Then I realized that as tempting as it may be to say that I’d have two weeks of pure knitting time, the truth is that I’m not going to work on something fancy or complicated at Pennsic. It takes too much concentration. I need something simple that I can do whilst holding a conversation, something I can put down and pick up without losing my place.

The yarn for my new dark green Fleeps is in the bag.

I don’t have any posts queued up for while I’m gone, but I’ll see you all in two weeks!

    I hope you had a great war. I managed to get 3 inches on a stocking cap done. :)
    And now back to breaking down in the rain…

      The impending rain is why I skipped out of town early – I ended up leaving Friday, before half my camp was broken down. Fortunately I’ve done it enough in years past that I could get away with it this year!

    it just would not be breakdown if it was not raining. I’m head of camp, so I am not allowed to escape early, we did head off site to the most amazing hole in the wall Mexican restaurant Saturday night, so staying was TOTALLY worth it.

      It was a rough War for me this year, since I wasn’t 100% healthy – the time off was good for recuperation, but I would have been useless at breakdown, hiding in the little bits of remaining shade… :)
