I can't wait for it to be Friday evening. I have the most wonderful weekend planned and I'm so excited.
I'm going to see Ash at the Roundhouse in Camden on Friday night. They are playing the whole of "1977" which is one of my favourite albums ever (as well as being the best year to be born in!). In fact, "Girl From Mars" has always been "my song". Yipeeeee.
Now I'm in Wolverhampton, I don't see Kerry nearly enough, so I'm looking forward to jumping around with her like we are still 18 on Friday and spending some "quality time" with her over the course of the weekend.
Then on Saturday it is iKnit. I'm meeting Delle, who is my UK Swap co-host, at Kings Cross and we will be venturing down to Victoria in time to see the talk from Jane Sowerby.
I don't really know what to expect, as I didn't go last year. Will it be really weird to meet lots of people I "know" from blogs and Ravelry? I expect so, but I am still looking forward to it. I'll be wearing my Ravelry badge and looking like my Ravelry avatar - please say hello if you see me!I must remember to pack my camera!
I must make a shopping list too. There isn't anything I am desperate to buy, which is probably a bad sign. I have to pick up some Malabrigo sock yarn from Alice at Socktopus as the Post Office appears to have lost my order. Grrr. I'm sure I'll be tempted by lots and lots of yummy sock yarn... does anyone have any recommendations?
On Sunday Kerry and I are meeting an old school friend for a long awaited catch up, and I'll be giving her the tiny socks I made, she is 8 months pregnant! I think we'll be chilling out in and around Spitalfields, one of my favourite things to do on a Sunday in London.
Now, train knitting.... how to decide what to take?
The blanket is going well:
Should I fill them in in cream? Or should I try and Make some half hexagons? Any suggestions? Maybe I need to have a hunt around Ravelry to see what I like, I'm quite happy with the other edge being zig-zaggy!
I've also started a pair of socks for my Hogwarts Sock Swap pal, Horcrux using Bright Dyes Gryffindor yarn. These should be fairly easy iknit knitting!
Should I bring along my Secret of the Stole too? I have 3 hours on the train on Sunday.which is always good lace knitting time... decisions decisions.
