As I finish marking the last essay on the pile, my mind began to race with lists of all that needs to be done before the plane takes off on Sunday morning. There’s cat food to be bought, final gifts to be found, laundry to be done, cleaning, packing… The list goes on but all I can think of is what knitting project will I bring on the plane. I still need to finish a gift I’m knitting but I think I should be able to get something started on Friday. I’m torn between trying my first pair of socks or my first shawl! So far the shawl is winning. I think I’ll join the more than 10,000 knitters who have made this particular shawl. Isnt it pretty?
I’m excited about seeing my family but I won’t lie – I also can’t stop thinking of all the amazing southern food I’ll be eating! Po-boys, grits, fried green tomatoes, blackened anything, boiled peanuts… Yum!
