Packing to Go

Don't they look pretty? Eight pieces each of 22 colorways. Some are Colors With NO Names.

I have been getting my act together in a big way today. Washing and Ironing fabrics, readying patterns, mailing out stuff to you and packing my bags to go to California tomorrow.

I am going to visit the Folsom Quilt Guild ( no Johnny Cash jokes please) and I have been dyeing stuff for them and for the other site. This will be one whirlwind trip. I am flying in Tuesday, giving a lecture that night, and doing the Releasing the Creative Block workshop on Wednesday and flying home on Thursday. I won't be there long enough to get used to the time change, so I apologize in advance for being sleepy on Wednesday.

My former Pard' Laura is also going to California tomorrow but her guild visit is in Southern California and I hope the electricity is back on when she arrives.

All the class supplies are packed and I have only to decide what quilts to bring, and what to wear. I will do that later. I like to pack my clothes at the last minute, usually the morning before I leave.

OK, I will be honest... what is really on my mind is "What will I knit??" I know I will have at a minimum, 12 hours of airport/flying/waiting time. I need to amuse myself somehow. When one has as much yarn as I have accumulated, there should be no shortage of choices.

Far too many.

Last night I undid a scarf made with Funny Eyelash and Dune. This is my month of frogging previous projects. Will I make something this trip with that yarn? Nope.

This afternoon I 'happened' to come across a 50%-off sale (oh oh) and only bought two new circular needles (#11, 36" and #10 1/2, 29" Baleen II's), and um, some white Lion Brand Jiffy Acrylic, which was not on sale, proof that I am no yarn snob. I found this scarf that I want to try out before I make it with good yarn. Geesh, I didn't mean that, I meant that I wanted white, soft washable semi-bulky yarn with lots of yardage for little pesos. That it is. 135 yards for $1.86. I mean, I could leave it on the plane and not even be upset.

So instead of worrying about what I will wear tomorrow or cooking dinner (he ate a pizza for breakfast at 3:45 this afternoon!) I will be casting on for a winter scarf.

Mind you, it is 91 degrees currently in my home town. I am just getting a head start on the inevitable.

  1. brrrr, don't like the looks of the snow picture, so I had to scroll back up to take another look at the warm cuddly fabric.

    have a safe trip.

  2. the electricity is back on. no terrorists to blame only an incompetent worker who accidently snipped a line, and reconnected it to a line that could not handle the wattage. So all of LA slowed to a stand still. For us in Glendale we had power in an hour and a half for many parts of LA they were out at least 4 hours and I am not sure if they are back on yet.

    I am excited to be meeting Laura on Wednesday night at our guild meeting in Glendale.

    The fabric looks gorgeous a dream stash if there ever was one.

    my favorite discount yarn source is elann.com. They have great yarn, limited supplies, for great prices.

  3. Have a great trip. I just got back from Kansas City, but we flew Southwest and it is a little difficult for me to knit and stand in line. I got a little done, but not as much as I wanted.
    The fabric looks wonderful, I know your group will be thrilled and will continue to buy from you through your site.

  5. Hope your trip is a productive and fun one. The fabric looks, as always spectacular. I will e-mail you when you get back regarding a purchase I figured what with travel and all you won't get around to filling orders until then anyway. Can't wait to get my hands on it. As for the snow anyone who wants to join the "winter fun in NY" I say please trade places for a few months. Winter is artistically productive(so much less to do) but physically and mentally yuck.

  6. Looks like a candy shop.... on a cold winter's day! That's a very nice image to start the day with. Thanks, Mel!

  7. Here I'm thinking that you are working like a dog in your dye studio, when, lo and behold, you manage to get to the store to make a couple measly purchases. I admire your diversity. And you are a good influence because I have re connected with my knitting. Enjoy your abreviated trip. We always miss you when you are gone.

  8. Oh! You will be so close and yet so far!! Will you have a rental car or will you be chaueffered? I presume you are flying in to Sacto.

  9. I'm surprised you're allowed to knit on the plane ...? Knitting needles are banned from cabins across Europe. Hm.

    Have a good time in Cal.

    Very scrumptious fabric, too!

  10. Fulsom is where Terry's sister lives, and Glendale is close to our old stomping grounds, so I am jealous. Also jealous of the thrilling picture of winter on your street. I would move back to California after Singapore and never once complain about the weather - even if there was no power!

  11. I am SO ready for cooler weather...even cold. I just don't do heat well. Besides, I want to be able to wear the socks I am making....all YOUR fault.

    Happy to see you so productive. I am taking this week off from the studio as a reward for finishing the charity quilt done a day early!!

    Oh, elann.com is having a sale right now.....
