Presenting... the UFO of the Month!

This month, I hereby resolve to work on... Birch! Hmm, she's not blue, grey, or white... but she sure is a weight on my conscience, so she's getting the nod. I love the pattern, I love the yarn, but as a knit, I'm having a doozy of a time working on her. I've had her on so many different needles it's a miracle she's still OTN!! She's going to come traveling with me, and I'll see if I can't get her done.

Anybody want to guess where this building is?
Short-ish post today, as I have a list of things to do as long as my arm--longer, actually. Part of the "fun" of leaving town for a couple of weeks is all the prep it takes, especially when the two weeks are going to be taken up with fibery pastimes. (Yes, the family will hold down the fort at home, and the fuzzballs will be well cared for. I, however, will be in fur deprivation mode. After all, I can talk to the people, but I can't pet cats from far away!) So I'm trying to get the sewing machines ready, the fabric and gear for quilting, and then the knitting to take to Stitches with me. Yes, I am going to lose my Stitches virginity this year.
I don't know how much blogging I'll be able to do from either of these venues. I do have a laptop now, and I'll be taking it with me, so there is every possibility of finding someplace to connect from. Stay tuned--but don't hold your breath!

Have a wonderful time! Everybody deserves a break now and again...even the cats. They will enjoy their time as rulers of the house and will probably even have things put back together after their wild partying by the time you get back. We hope. ;)

What a great vacation you have planned! Looking forward to meeting up with you at Stitches so we can lose our virginities together (snicker snicker).

Oooh, Birch. In that gorgeous burgundy KSH. Lovely UFO any way you look at it!

Bon voyage! See you in Santa Clara! (I have a feeling it's gonna be Pasadena Daytimers gone wild at Stitches....)

Nope, no idea where that building is. But it looks like a UFO, too. :)
