Leavin' on a Jet Plane . . .

Okay, not really, just a car with Jodi!! It's the 1st Annual Milwaukee Knit Weekend!!! WOOHOO!! I can't tell you how friggin' excited I am to have a whole weekend of knitting. Just knitting. I don't have to do shit if I don't want to!! R is a trooper and hasn't complained once about being with S all weekend!! What a guy! No wondered I married him!

There are 7 of us going. We have a 4 bedroom condo up north and we just are bringing food. We never have to leave! The weather is supposed to be rainy, but that is OK with me! Better to nap and knit in!!

I'm packed and ready to go!! Notice the contents of my overnight bag!!!!

My project is R's Afghan. It's a basic garter StSt pattern from Patons on Size 19 needles. I decided to do something easy so I can talk to the girls. We have a few non knitters coming with us! I hope they can offer entertainment. E and K are funny people so I'm sure I'll be laughing too!

I'm using Patons Divine in Soft Earth and Dark Earth in the throw. The main yarn was Shetland Chunky (Patons), but I didn't like the colorways they offered, so I found a Lion Brand Homespun that I LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! I've casted on and I know this is going to ROCK!! The colors are unbelievable together!!

I can't wait to see this finished!! I can't wait to share our weekend with everyone!!!
