Knitting at home

The knitting lists buzz about World Wide Knit in Public Day events (June 13 and 14).  Normally, that’s “me all over”.   In fact, a friend once gave me a tapestry pillow with the legend “If I’m sitting, I’m knitting”.

This weekend – not so much.  My plan involves hunkering down at home and knitting.    It’s all Walt Disney’s fault!  Next week we are scheduled to go to Disney World for a glorious vacation.  To that end, I have finished two and a half pair of footies, with another half footie on the needles.  Three pairs will be the minimum (with hand washing each night) and four would be better.  Have you noticed that no big event in a knitter’s life comes without knitting deadline urgencies?  Christmas, birthdays, babies, Disney…it’s all the same pressure!

Why so anti-social?  It would be just my luck to catch the flu just in time to miss this long-awaited trip.  I’ll go to St. Patrick’s Sunday morning, but otherwise I’ll be here.  Knitting.

    Sounds like a good plan to me and it keeps you out of harms way during this time too!!

    I think you’re smart. While I’m not worrying terribly about the flu, I understand you’d like to do everything possible to ensure a good trip! (I’m thinking that way for Sock Summit, too)

    I’ll be holed up at home, too…sewing. I’ve lost a week and have to catch up. And there’s still a bit of recovering to do, too…thankfully, it wasn’t the flu!
