in the chicago airport

June 23, 2010

today begins a week of vacation here at bitches get stitches.
i’m off to portland to begin a west coast road trip with two great friends.
i hope to have many adventures to share with you all,
but right now. . .

i’m a little sleepy.
i have nothing blogworthy to report,
except that i brought my stora dimum with me to knit on.
some people like to bring small, portable projects on vacation.
i prefer large ones.

there are so many extra hours,
both on planes and in airport terminals.
if i’m going to put that much time into knitting,
it might as well be on something big.

and believe you me,
the stora dimun is on huge mothah fuckah.
for those who don’t know,
you cast on 449 stithces.
just sayin’.

but i’m unprepared.
there’s no picture of the glorious yarn,
or the progress i’ve made.
(2 more lace rows!)

so here’s a picture to amuse you.
this is what i look like with an hour’s sleep,
living through the six o’clock hour for the second time:

yup! still youthful and fresh looking.
practically perfect in every way,
just like mary poppins.

    You realize we are the only ones not done? And since I am pretending mine doesn’t exist, you win!

    As one of your two great friends, I would just like to give myself props for taking over pretty much all the driving so that you can knit. Sea lions and lesbians, here we come! P.S. The pug is very excited to have a new friend to love and pay attention to him tonight.

    Have fun! Megan sounds like she’s a blast!! And if Anna would only stop knitting socks, she’d be done!! 😀

    If you come to the Bay area send me an e-mail! Lots of great sites and yarn stores from a native San Franciscan!!!

    enjoy your trip! Are you heading north to the seattle area? On a good note, our rain has mellowed out, for a few days at least! 🙂
