Keeping Me in Stitches

Let the Freak Out commence!

I always tend to freak out a little bit before I take a trip. Scared I'm going to leave something important behind, worried that something will happen to the dog while I'm gone...that kind of thing. This is a little bit bigger.

Sock Summit. I'm going. Leaving Wednesday. Have I packed? No. Do I have a list? Sort of....I've written down all the stuff I need to remember for classes and my laptop and Kindle. Am I worried that this trip will somehow come off the rails and crash and burn in a glorious explosion? Oh yes!

I know that everything will be fine, but that little ocd part of me wants to plan everything out to the smallest detail and do it *now*....two days before I leave. I'm fighting this right now. But I'm going to show you what I've got on the *must not forget* list so far.

-Stuff for toe-up sock class (half-done sock, needles, copy of stitch pattern)
-Stuff for sideways sock class (pick out yarn, needles, knit swatch)
-Scarf for Guiness World Record knitting
-Queen of Beads sock for plane knitting (yarn, needles, pattern)
-Kindle and power cord
-laptop and power cord
-camera and power cord
-phone and charger

And that is currently my whole packing list. Should probably include some things like clothes, underwear and deodorant, huh?

Excuse me while I go freak out in my little corner.

    Have a wonderful time! I'm sure you will, though. And think positively, if you don't pack enough yarn, you can always buy some there...

    *pat pat* Don't worry! You will have a blast at Sock Summit, regardless of all the crazy beforehand!

    Besides, any forgotten projects can immediately be remedied by buying tons of yarn at the marketplace, right?

    Relax and breathe. Oh, and remember - the more room you leave in your suitcase now, the more yarn you can stuff in it later! Wahoo! Can't wait to see pics/hear stories.

    Pretty much mimics my packing list! Not even THINKING about the clothes! But I have packed an extra bag just for yarn from the Marketplace! (tee hee!) Looking forward to meeting you and your mom in person!
