Just Keep Knitting...

Today is my last day before vacation. Sweet, lovely holiday. This is were I do nothing. Besides hangin' with the folks and moseying along each day. The preparation for taking a week off is busting my arss the week before and then busting it up again the week after.

My vacation ends with a bang at Stitches Midwest and I'm a little concerned that I'm not fully prepared. I mean my homework is done, yet what will I wear? What shoes will be the best for shopping for hours in and around 200 booths! What bag should I bring to carry all my goodies? sigh. I guess it's not so bad, yet I don't want to forget my pajamas. That has always been the one consistent thing I've forgotten in past trips.

Well, we can't forget the most obvious of all things... what will I bring to knit? Oh Gosh... I haven't a clue.

I'm guessing my Ravelympic event will be done by then, since this is the front and I'm about a third of the way through. Maybe a sock... portable is always good.

Last night I made up a batch of Calico Bean Dip and I couldn't stand it and had it for breakfast. Thanks Janice for this lovely recipe, I seriously can't get enough. Here is the only evidence left after I ran out of scoops... I'm considering licking the bowl;)

On another bit of random news...

This bag is so cute. On my way to the train I spotted this lovely thing and had to take a picture of it. I'm not one of those girls that can spot the designer bag from 50 paces or anything... but it's just so cute. Now if I could only figure out what it is... Anyone else have a clue?

Oooh, so glad you like the bean dip! It's one of my favorites... and I have been known to eat leftovers with a spoon if the chips are gone!!! Have a FABULOUS time at Stitches!!! I am WAY jealous. I will make it there one year!

Calico Bean Dip!!!!! Oh YUM!!! I'm running over to Janice's site and getting that recipe :-)

Have big fun on vacation and at Stitches. My advice: Wear your best walking/running shoes - the ones with the most "cush." Then, be sure to take your flip flops, because by the end of the day, your tootsies are going to want to be liberated :-)

I think I might dig out my backpack for the market. That might be easier.

Green is definitely your color! You wear it very well.

Looks like a laptop bag. Love the green!
