I'm leaving early from work today so that I can go home for a wedding. Jeff and Morgan are getting married in a hut on Mt. Hood. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone (people from high school and college) but I'm also being pretty lazy. I feel like I was just out of town because of Stitches. And this is really too short of a trip up. It would be nice to see more of my parents while I'm home. I had a hell of a time packing for this trip. It was like I had to pack for three climates. I had to have clothes for warm Los Angeles weather, kind of cold Camas weather and then for really cold Mt. Hood weather. Plus something kind of nice to wear for the wedding. It was also time to bring home the giant suitcase that I borrowed from my Mom to bring my spinning wheel down. This suitcase is huge. I could probably curl up into it. And now my weekend clothes are just swimming around in it.
I spent just as long last night trying to figure out what knitting to bring with me. I have the Turtleneck Shrug with me, but I may not risk metal DPNs on the plane. I might do a swatch for a pair of socks. I'm going to start Titania's Revenge by Cookie A. from Blue Moon. I have some Socks that Rock Lightweight that I got at Stitches. I think that I'll probably have to buy some 0s, because I always knit loose and it asks for 1s, which I do have. I am also bringing some KnitPicks Wool of the Andes to swatch for the Ram Horn Jacket from the Knitting Nature book. I think Norah Gaughan is my favorite designer right now. But I don't really want to start on this all stockinette sweater right now. And it'll probably turn out where I don't work on anything while I'm gone.
The worst thing is that I'm thinking about leaving work extra early so I can hit the A Mano Yarn sale on the way to the airport. Today is 40% off all books, and there's some books I really want. I want to get Lace Style, Suss Wedding Knits, and take a look at the Fitted Knits book. I don't know if any of these new books will be on sale. And I was just complaining earlier about not having any money.
