Happy Yule to Me

If you've noticed the lack of posting, that had something to do with having guests in the house during Thanksgiving. I won't bore you with the sordid details. We'll just say that I did spring cleaning in the autumn this year. (Raising the question, was that 2008 spring cleaning done late, or 2009 done early? 'Cause if it's early . . . .)

And I'll also insert a tease here. I finished knitting something nifty, but I might publish the design. Hence, I've sequestered it. So that's why no new knitting up on Ravelry or here on the blog.

I'm glad I have the 2009 pages for my Dayrunner. The postcards confirming Dragon*Con registration arrived last week. I called the Hyatt yesterday and booked the room. Cuddly Hubby and I have upped the ante -- we'll arrive Thursday evening for Dragon*Con. So much goes on the night before, and it will be nice to be ready to go on Friday. The Bard and his wife have also reserved their room at the Hilton -- to be close to the space and science tracks and the good breakfast bar.

But the real reason for this post is that I got online this morning and registered for Stitches South. Woo hoo! I'm very glad that the Cuddly Hubby and I keep the Christmas shopping down to a reasonable amount, because I registered for The Works. After he finishes sleeping in this morning, I do need to let him know what to expect on the next Visa cycle. In addition to the usual banquets and fashion shows, I chose the following schedule:
Thursday afternoon: Challenging Stitches from Japanese Designs with Gayle Roehm
Friday all day: Lapland Hand Garments with Susanna Hansson
Saturday all day: Set-in Sleeves Simplified with Joan Schrouder
Sunday morning: Japanese Innovators show by Gayle Roehm
Sunday afternoon: No Wrong Side -- Reversible Fabrics with Gwen Bortner

So, I am very much looking forward to Atlanta in springtime. Fa la la la la, la la la la.
