Time sure has flown by the last couple of months, and I wasn’t even too sleep deprived to enjoy it. Bestest and I booked a trip WAY back in July to Paris. Why may you ask? Because it was dirt cheap, and really does one need a reason to go to Paris other than that.
After many months of waiting… the time has finally come, we leave tonight. I have my suitcase mostly packed – minus the hand knit socks that are not drying fast enough to pack them, passport, travel book, French phrase book, and the obligatory yarn all ready to go. Oh.. the camera is packed too.. don’t worry Jacie I didn’t leave it at home this time.
Karen’s already mapped out a few yarn stores and I am pretty sure one afternoon will consist of coffee/wine/croissants and yarn in a cafe. I can’t think of a better afternoon. There will be museums, delicious food and wine…I can hardly wait.
In case you don’t follow Jacie…and you should because she’s made of awesome. It is in fact been scientifically proven. She made a beautiful tam made from Malabrigo and Mulberry Merino. Seeing as she’s been in a hat knitting craze and it matches my pretty moss stitch scarf, she gave me said awesomeness. Guess what’s going to be on my head while I am in Paris? It’s ridiculously soft and hand knit by one of my favorite people in the world. Be on the look out for the hat making random appearances at well known Paris destinations.
Well I should probably go finish my errands and pretend to do a few hours of work before we leave. Enjoy the long weekend.
