New Threads TUESDAY!
the ending of Summer Sweater…
Pattern: Chic Knits Basic Chic V-Neck Cardi
Designer: Bonne Marie Burns
Yarn: Plymouth TUSCON
DONE! Just in time for my road trip to Northern Michigan, a aran-weight cotton blend cardi. I’ll be living in T-shirts & jeans (shirts in wheat, grey, teal, kelly & white; 1 Max Studio Shirred Bodice Dress, silver flip-flops, black slip-on wedgies).
The 5-Day forecast for where I’m going says one hot day (today) then cooling temps coming in, right down to 45 degrees at night later on in the week. My people say that’s good Sleeping Weather, but I say it’s definitive Sweater Weather!
I’m taking this BCVN, my cotton Cerisara, and a little wool one too just to be sure.
Even though I love traveling, I loathe packing!
Always, I want to take about 5 pairs of shoes, too many dresses, magazines and other entertainment because I am from the City. I am going to the Country. What the heck do they do out there to pass the time?
(Which is, of course, why I’m going: to hopefully re-boot the brain cells and do nothing.)
But, I know, the first 48 hours, I will be going through Multi-Tasking Withdrawal, and just in case, it’s good to have some familiar distractions until my head stops spinning, metro-style.
Consider: just to get through a day in Chicago, one must possess a set of Sound Filters that weed out sirens, dogs, neighbors, lawn mowers, power saws, horns, early-am drunk singing, marital discord, planes, trains, and automobiles.
This thick-head now travels to a place where one can almost hear the butterfly flit through the breeze, a place where sunshine might be the only sound…
It’s a different kind of lag, a savoir-faire born of taking one’s time because there Is No Hurry.
I can hardly wait.
