Tomorrow Larry and I leave for Florida…..I’m going to a conference next week – when I found out I was going, we looked at where it was and thought it would be nice to go together. So we’ll leave tomorrow, have Sunday and Monday to do things together, and then Tuesday and Wednesday Larry will golf while I’m at the conference. The resort looks pretty amazing…and I totally admit that this is a boondoggle. I mean, yes, I’ll go to the conference (and I’m actually looking forward to it)…but I probably wouldn’t have gone had this been in a less …attractive location. But sometimes that is just a perk of working, and I’m ok with taking advantage of it! And I will have my Blackberry with me, so its not all fun…..
We are looking forward to spending Sunday at the beach….and we are going to play the rest by ear. I don’t think I’ll be scoping out yarn stores…but who knows! I’ve never been in this part of Florida, so it will just be nice to explore – and relax. Oh, yeah, and of course, learn new things at the conference……
I realized that I needed something to knit on the plane….and I just didn’t want to deal with any of my current projects. So I thought socks would be nice….and I found a kit that I had purchased two years or so ago from Wool Gatherers. The yarn is Lorna’s Laces…and I think its my favorite sock yarn. I really love the way it feels and the way it looks….
Pretty cool, eh? The heel and toe are done in a dark blue….but it has beads!
I just started this last night, and I’m already at picking up the gusset. I forced myself to put it down so I don’t finish it before I leave in the morning. I think that I may just come home from my mini-break (oh, sorry, very serious work conference) with a finished pair of socks!
We are leaving fairly early tomorrow morning, and I won’t be back until Wednesday night. I hope everyone has a nice weekend, and that you aren’t too jealous of my boondoggle!
