Well, Darn

I am so disappointed.  I was all set to get up before the crack of dawn -- waaaaay before -- and get on a plane tomorrow at 6:15 to go to NYC.  My team at work had planned a meeting where all of us would meet next Monday and Tuesday.  I had decided to fly in early.  I had BIG plans.  First off, I would have brunch with my niece Erica.  Then I'd head into Manhattan for the 2011 NYC Yarn Crawl, where I would do what else?? -- BUY yarn of course.  I even contemplated going to the Yankees vs Tigers baseball game.

But it all went kaput when the meeting got cancelled and moved back a few weeks.  Darn, darn, darn.  I even had my suitcase out, my travel size toiletries, and set aside my clothes.  I wound several skeins of yarn into center-pull balls so I'd have plenty to knit with over the next several days.

You know what the say about the best laid plans, right?  Never fear.  I will have plenty of things to keep me busy this weekend.  Now I have time to work on my double faced wool jacket, which is cut out but needs to be constructed.  I also can knock off a couple of felted hats.  For retail therapy today, I bought two new patterns at Ewe-Nique Knits:  Square Peg, an updated poncho, and Bubbles, a really cute kids' hat pattern.  As if I needed more patterns, or projects, or things to keep me occupied.  Both patterns are available on Ravelry, and if you don't know what Ravelry is, leave me a comment and I can point you in the right direction!

It's going to be a chilly night tonight -- right now it's 41º -- I just might have to kick on the furnace.  I was hoping to hold off until October but I guess we're almost there, right?

Hope you have a great weekend, wherever you are.

Darn, Darn! You could have seen a double, since the game was rained out last night. (Sadly no Verlander tonight though).
Brrr is right! I'm sure you'll be busy and warm knitting away this weekend.
No furnace for us yet either--Sweatshirts, sweaters,blankets!
Hopefully the weather will be nicer when you do make the trip!
