I'd love to go with you...But I'm bringing my Knitting!

Woe is me.....I am just about the most boring person on weekends and prefer to use up every single minute of this free time to knit & crochet my little(big) heart out. This weekend I am going to stay at my good(best) friend BCB's Dad's house with her to celebrate(drink) his birthday. While I am so so so so so excited about this little excursion there is a voice in the back of my mind saying, "When will you knit Claire? Will you have plenty of time to knit?". Luckily BCB understands(accepts) my crafty obsession to the extent that she will ooh and aah while I show her my latest 12 active projects and even plays along when I tell her to stroke the wool. (Even giving me a obligatory "wow it's so soft"-which in turn makes me sigh with a grin & remember why she's my favourite friend) In addition to my overnight bag which includes the "necessities" like undies, toothbrush, etc., I am bringing my jumbo Lexie Barnes bag which I am already stuffing to the brim with multiple projects, extra wool, needles, notions, etc. Packing this back is a stress in itself because what if I forget something vital? No stitch markers? The horror! Yes, I would bounce back and use some scrap yarn in lieu of the bright plastic rings but the initial shock of realizing I'd forgotten something could be enough to damage me forever. It'll be alright....I can do it. I can be normal. eheheh. We'll see about that. In other news...I finished something!!! WOOOOOO HOOOOO!!! May I present Clacker's Calorimetry (sans button because well....I wouldn't be me if I had TRULY finished it)....
