This Memorial Day weekend we are going to Far-V early and staying late; altogether we will have 5 days and 4 nights! Can't wait. We have planned the menus, and I am shopping and preparing for the venture. AJ has a smoker upon which he plans to do a pork loin, and I have a camp dutch oven, in which I plan to roast a chicken. We also have a small freezer that is stocked with burgers and brats, and the pantry has such staples as canned baked beans and S'mores makings. All in all, we should be able to roll home instead of driving.
Of course, all of this requires careful knitting preparation. I have to pack in such a way as to get everything I might possibly need in the car with me. Enough wound skeins of yarn, tapestry needles, scissors, tape measure, stitch markers, etc. I plan to be able to finish the cabled project bag this coming weekend – the knitting part at least. The lining part will take more time and a sewing machine. No I won't be taking that up to Door County.
