I will be away for a few days. I will be knitting, but only at night and in a hotel room in Kewanee, Illinois. I will be at the Midwest Folk Festival. I curated this festival and feel proud to have some world-renowned artists performing. I am also proud to present folk artists at this festival. Besides wishing that the rain and excessive heat stay away, at least until 4:00 on Sunday, my only hope is that all of the visitors to the festival make some connection with and learn something from an artist. Now if I could only figure out a way to make this a larger part of my job (that, or find a way to knit all the time), I would be satisfied--at least job-satisified.
I'm working on the Garterlac Dishcloth (see previous post). I had to rip out a bit because I made a square too many, but I'm having fun with it. I think I might take a sock pattern with me (what?) for some hotel room knitting. I might try toe-up. Any pattern recommendations? Might be too hot for wool, though. Maybe I'll start a tank for me. That'll be the day. I should just ask Jen what she'd like and make that. Perhaps a bag. Oh, I'll probably take sock yarn, yarn for a tank top, and yarn for a bag. I might even take some extra, just in case.
