There are few straight flat roads to anywhere here.
I have been planning on driving to a knitting retreat in Hendersonville NC starting Thursday and continuing on to Sunday. This will be with a bunch of my friends from the knitting group and they go every year. But this year we have had some bad weather, and while sunny and cold days are forecast for the weekend, that doesn't mean that the way there will be easy...or even safe.
Black Ice. Eeeoouuuu!
I have already paid the full amount ($460+)and my penny pinching self wants to make it worth it, but on the other hand, knowing how narrow and twisty the roads are in the mountains makes me quiver in my boots.
I keep hoping there will be a mass email saying the whole conference is cancelled or maybe postponed til Spring (ha!), but so far, nothing. I will call them today and see what they can do for me.
In the meantime I am getting ready, packing clothes and mountains of yarn as I haven't yet decided on what project to knit over the three days. I have a lot of ideas, and all the necessary yarn, but nothing in particular that I must do. And of course I am playing with the hat idea. Looks like a starfish on the crown, no?
So what would you do if you were me?
