But I did have my two socks in progress (one of which is my Personal Sock Club from July that's a long way from being completed) and I realized that they were both packed and I wanted to knit tonight while watching a bit of tv and thinking again what else I might want to pack.
So I opened another gift bag (I'll get all of these caught up, not to worry). And the funny thing? I decided that I needed to just do something completely easy, so was delighted to see the Trekking XXL colorway 173 appear from the bag, and immediately cast on using my Knitpicks Options circulars in my plain vanilla pattern (I think I'll probably put the picot edging on, too).
And then stopped by Stephanie's blog. What a surprise - and oh my I got so excited (it's okay, go read it if you haven't, I'll wait.) to see that the convention center is getting all ready for us!
And she picked the easy plain vanilla sock for her travel knitting, too. Of course, I'm leaving this sock behind.
It will have to keep The Meezer company. (sigh)
That's the hardest part of leaving, you know. Not being able to take everyone with me.
(Now don't forget to post a comment to the contest blog, okay? I'll do my very best to check emails and get them up whenever I can...)
And yes, I'll take lots of photos.
