Feeling a Little Distracted

It is still hard to believe that the festival is only a few days away! The weather report keeps changing, but even now, there is only a chance of rain on Saturday. As long as it's not a washout, I'm happy. We can always go back on Sunday if we get too wet!

I'm driving down to Maryland tomorrow morning, so there probably won't be any posts for a few days. I do hope to have TONS of pictures of my new stash acquisitions, as well as festival pictures after the weekend! I have a few meet-ups planned both Saturday and Monday night with bunches of knitbloggers! It will be fun to actually meet in person.

As you can see, the progress on the top down raglan is back to zero. I was consuming yarn way too fast at the gauge I got on the 11's. So, I upped it to 15's and got about 12-13 stitches/4". I think I pretty much can get a whole sweater at that gauge. I had used about 3 balls of yarn, and wasn't done with the raglan increases yet. Not a good sign. So, I frogged the whole thing. It will be good car knitting - just round and round. I plan on bringing it and the Clapotis to Maryland. If I have time to knit will be another story! (maybe a sock to start too...hmmmmm)

To everyone heading to the Festival - see you there!!!!
