Knitting Solitude
Beginning Tuesday morning, I will be in Knit Heaven! My son will join his father on their working vacation and the house will be mine!

Hubby's been gone since the end of December and I do miss his nice warm presence and ability to build a sturdy, long lasting fire on cold nights.

I am very overjoyed with this rare, once a year opportunity and will thoroughly appreciate being able to knit without interruption. I've heard the the Yarn Harlot actually has a nice little mountain cabin where she goes to enjoy Knitting Solitude.

There are plans to organize and catagorize my stash and tools. I plan to work on some designs that have been rolling around in my head, if I can decide which ones will require the most concentration. The lights will be burning way into the wee hours of the morning, cause I won't have to sleep at a particular time!!! These cats had better not get too roudy or I might just shave them all, find a spinner and turn them into blankets!

And then there's that LYS in Aiken that I've been told you can get lost in for hours.... No schedule, no phones ringing, no rushing!

Any other suggestions?

I've always thought the ultimate luxury is to sleep oneself out and not wake up until one's body actually says to, instead of the alarm clock.

Enjoy -- your plans sound lovely!

Oh, goodness...

I'm torn between happiness for you and these pangs of ... I wish it were me too! First question - does the yarn harlot rent out her cabin? Next thought - yes you must sleep in until you wake up! That is the best! Organizing is fun, fun for me - whatever time of day you are sharpest is great for organizing, interspersed with quiet moments sipping tea or coffee, knitting, and looking through pattern books for future inspiration/projects. Maybe a shopping time could be planned, after stash and tool organization, just in case there is anything that is begging to be bought and to come home with you to the newly organized area?

I know you will have a blast - congratulations! You must be soooo excited! Enjoy every minute of it!

Enjoy your "ME" time Mary. You can eat and sleep as you feel like it and not have to worry about anyone else, other than the pets. How long will your vacation last? Have fun.
