Ok. I know this is late. I blame it on shoddy internet service in the back woods of North Carolina. I wrote it on Sunday while we were driving from Atlanta and thought I posted it while we were driving. Turns out – not so much. So here is my riveting post from last weekend.
This week I spent getting ready for our family trip to Colonial Williamsburg. It is going to be Hubby, Mermaid, Mom-in-law, Dad-in-law, and me. It is going to be a long trip – 2 days driving to Virginia, 7 days there, 1 day driving to Atlanta, 2 days there, and then a day driving home. I had to prep the house for my nephew to housesit, prep the animals for us to be gone, pack bags for everyone, confirm all the reservations and printout tickets that I bought online.
The hardest part of packing for a long trip like that? Figuring out what kind of crochet/ knitting projects to pack and how many to take. I can’t fit a whole suitcase of yarn and notions and pattern books in the back of the car with everything else (I have tried trust me) no matter how much I want to. Hubby joked that he would get one of those hard shell cases that goes on the top of the SUV and I could just put my yarn and stuff up there. I almost took him up on it, not going to lie. I decided on taking 5 projects with me. I started the Marly Bird KAL with Red Heart this week and I am taking it to finish, there are supplies for 2 Marly Bird classes on Craftsy I am going to make, and then 2 sets of sock yarn to make 2 lace shawls.
I want to try and finish all 5 on the trip. If I can do that then I deserve any yarn I decide to buy on the trip right? Check up on my Instagram for updates on how I am doing with my 5 shawl challenge.
