and errand running. The day before a two week vacation doesn’t leave a lot of time for knitting, spinning or reading.
I am taking along a number of books on the computer – mostly from Baen Free Library plus Audio Books by Rex Stout, Rochelle Krich and Sue Grafton. I have more on the computer – but this little toy of an MPT (as it calls itself) player only has a couple of gigs.
Yarn selected, I spent a bit of time winding this evening into center pull balls. And selecting patterns to take along. I have a number of interesting ones, but will likely wind up doing a fair amount of mindless socks – easier to do while flying, as I normally do not do well on tracking when there is a lot of action going on.
My suitcase is packed, the kids have finally quieted down. We are planning on a 1000 or so train to Frankfurt where we board an Air China flight for our adventure. I am assuming that I might get to email a couple of times while we are gone and will upload posts as I get a chance. Since I am the custodian of both the laptop and the camera, I plan on making the most of everything.
