I can’t believe I am saying this...

I am at work and I am bored out of my mind!!! Can you people believe it? I can’t! Not really into sewing right now (though i have stuff for other people i should be working on as well as the dress I finally cut out for me) So here I am downloading podcasts for my trip…

Here are a few hints of where I am going (if you haven’t figured it out already)






































Yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Saturday night I will be on a plane to Vienna!!!! Just me – no Fritz! I am a terrible wife! And I have decided to make these socks while I am away. I am using SOCKS THAT ROCKS yarn that Neomera gave me for my birthday earlier this year. I am not quite sure how I feel about this yarn. I am a huge Koigu fan, along with Cherry Tree Hill Sock Yarn, when it comes to my variegated sock yarns. Since I have big feet, I cast on an extra 10 stitches (allowing for the repeat). I know the designer says that it is a very stretchy pattern, but one of my legs is way bigger than the other.So I must compensate…and hey! If it turns out to be big by the time I get to the ankle, I can always decrease???

And of course, I have mapped out the yarn stores in between museum trips and food trips.

Other than my love of Vienna and the yummy foods – I HAVE to see this:

REBECCA is one of my favourite movies and books of all time and I just have to see the musical! It may suck for all I know…but hey it is totally worth it for the finale live on stage. The theatre has publicity shots on the webpage – and the spectacle looks great – even if they ruin the story and the music could be crap – but I will let you know when I get back next Friday!

Heck, I can totally hear Mrs. Manvers doing a dead-bitchy power ballad about her beloved dead mistress...

Hooray for vacations! I hope yours was as much fun as mine, and that you left your socks behind on fewer buses. Also, by the time we hit Santiago, Jeff's goal had switched from looking at schools to seeing an alpaca. How's THAT for conversion for ya?
