All that being said, now comes the sweet. I am preparing for a trip home to Canada. I'm spending the majority of my time in Kingston with my Mom. The bonus good news is that my daughter, son-in-law and 6-month-old grandson, Braydon, will be flying in from Calgary, so I'll get to see them, too. I'm really looking forward to that. Perhaps I can go to Scotland and London another time.
I'm also planning to go to the Kitchener Blues Festival. Bonus here, too. One of my favorite bands, Delta Moon, from Atlanta, will be performing. I haven't seen them in person for two years. My hotel is right in the heart of the festival, and near a yarn shop. Good planning, don't you think?
The hard part of a trip is deciding what knitting to take along. I can't just take one project for 10 days, for heaven's sake. I'm in the process of narrowing down my choices. I'm thinking I might work on the Saroyan scarf. I have the yarn I want to use for it: Wolle's Tropical yarn, that I talked about before, here.
I'm also going to take some of my Rowan purelife British Sheep Breeds DK Undyed wool to continue swatching for an aran sweater I'm designing for someone. I need to have it finished by early October. More on this project and my trip to Southern California later.
