Not What I Planned

I started writing  a really long post this morning, then just now glanced at the time and realized that I can’t be writing right now, because I have to leave for North Bay in about twenty minutes and though I can’t be sure, I think most of the people there would like it if I bathed and tossed some toiletries in a bag.

It’s about a 5 hour trek north to North Bay, straight up through some of the prettiest landscape Ontario has to offer, and I’m really looking forward to it, the last time I was in North Bay it looked like this…

and it really wasn’t that long ago, now that I think about it. It will be nice to see the Lake all blue and green.  Can’t wait. I’ll be at the North Bay Museum this evening, speaking at 6pm.  (Details here.)

I’ll be taking Omelet, who grows steadily larger.

That’s three of the four repeats done, although the rows are starting to be longer – this next one might take a while. The driving and speaking will interfere with the knitting for the next day or two… though I do have a sidekick this weekend – and I might be able to scam her into driving for a bit.  Now that I think about it though, it was probably stupid to choose another knitter as co-pilot.  It’s way harder to get knitters to take the wheel.  Way harder.

Have a lovely weekend all.  If you’re American, enjoy your holiday. Canada had one last week and I can’t say enough nice things about it.
