where I am right at this moment. I so totally wish I’d asked Sam to figure out my webcam for me so I could give you picture hints!
But since I didn’t, picture this: One mom, dressed in her basic uniform of a simple dress and big lymphedema bandages, sitting at a table at a Starbucks. There is a muffin on the table that I haven’t had to share and a very clean bottle of water. LOTS of huge windows behind me.
No guesses yet? I am wearing slip on shoes… and next to me is my backpack on wheels. My dad brought me here at 7:30 this morning.
Correct! I’m at the airport, ready to fly to Portland for my adventure. I am going to the Sock Summit, the most ultimate knitting event ever in the history of interlocking loops with pointy sticks. This is basically my grown up equivalent of a Make-A-Wish trip. I can’t figure out how to explain this Sock Summit event to people who, for example, aren’t on Ravelry, but really all you need to know is that I could have chosen to go anywhere or do anything and this was IT!
The kids are staying with my parents, who have spent the past three days training on Danny’s equipment. They even know how to replace a traumatically removed Mic-Key button now! I am so grateful for them… they’re going to be SO tired by the end of this week!
Time to go through security. I miss my babies, but they’ve really enjoyed helping me get ready and sharing in my excitement. I brought my camera, so I promise lots of photos from Portland. Gotta go 🙂 .
