Off into the wild blue yonder

I'm off for a VACATION this weekend. An actual trip, involving airplanes and everything. Right now, I'm in the middle of my favorite game: "What am I forgetting to pack?" (No worries, the knitting is safely stowed in my purse).

If my flights were at normal hours, I'd say I might come home with a finished pair of socks... however, I booked obscenely early flights to give myself a nice wide buffer in case of delays/cancellations, so I have a feeling I'll be comatose on the plane.

Hope everyone has a delightful weekend!

Ariann update

I'm steadily plugging along on Ariann:

Ariann in progress

Ariann in progress detail

I love this pattern. Jody convinced Sarah to cast on for one, so that's a third Ariann that Jody's responsible for (I think she deserves a commission). I don't think I can have it done for MDS&W, although 3 of us in matching sweaters would be too funny.

Speaking of MDS&W, several of my friends (including the aforementioned Jody and Sarah) are running/vendoring at the Cloverhill booth this year, which is just going to be nifty. Go check out what's being planned!
