Well, I haven’t gotten all the knitting in I wished I had. I know there is always a time crunch before weddings, but I thought I would have an hour here or a half hour there to do SOME knitting. The prize for most worked on project goes to….. *drumroll*…. Car Socks!!
I suppose that really isn’t too surprising, but I haven’t really had the time nor inclination to knit much. I’ve briefly mentioned I was struck down with the flu, but it was so bad, I couldn’t even knit. I just wanted to lay in my misery and possibly sleep.
I am feeling much better now, but still exhausted. I think I might need several lattes on the wedding day itself. Hair and makeup for me and the girls starts at 8AM. If that isn’t crazy, I don’t know what is. I think I am going to try to get very little sleep on Thursday night, so sleep Friday night will be no problem! Right? No? Crazy idea?
I originally wanted to have my rocky coast cardigan done for Vogue Knitting, but I doubt that is going to happen. I am going to make a copy of the pattern and take it with me to Chicago! Hopefully I’ll be able to get some work on it done and maybe a little steam blocking. Hotel room irons probably have a steam mode? It would be something really sentimental to complete the sweater on my honeymoon. We will have to see.
I am really looking forward to another weekend at Vogue Knitting Live, but this year they have seemed kind of unorganized. I’ll withhold my judgment until afterwards, but I’ve gotten a bad taste in my mouth more than once before-hand. While planning a wedding, the last thing you need is trouble from something you’re going to do on your honeymoon. In movies you always see people getting upgraded to first class etc, when they’re on their honeymoon. It really has helped me decide that the next event I am going to attend will be a stitches event. I’ve been thinking about going to one for a while, but my recent dealings with Vogue Knitting have tipped the scales.
