OUT to Lunch for 264 hours
at least…


a favorite cafe in 12e

NOT Chicago:
– almost non-existent sidewalks
– narrow, narrow streets that CURVE
– cars driving real fast almost in your lap!
– Bonne urbain

Shoes, check. Lipstick, check. Passport, check…

YARN? OMG!!! What the heck should I bring with me? This is harder than trying to get my passport renewed at the last second because I’d LET IT EXPIRE!!! (God bless those folks down at City Hall for helping me out…)

I am smack dab in the middle of two projects that don’t want to leave home!

What’s a person to do?

Start a N-E-W Project!

New yarn (after several projects with either recycled or re-purposed yarn – break open the GGH Java in a color they call “Adobe” which is a warm taupe)!

New pattern (a sexy little shell called *Bisect*)!

New ideas (should be fun to finagle some new angle moves while on the run)!

I am hoping to start and finish this while I’m on the road. Is this realistic? Probably – maybe – I think so?! Will I be too distracted to knit? Too jet lagged to purl? The adventure begins!
