Holiday Monday here in Canada. Not really a stat holiday but fortunately my employer has a family reunion this weekend so he gives us a paid day off. Lucky me.
The Maple Shawl is finished. The yarn "Muse," from Twisted Fiber Art, is a dream to knit. They call this an evolution dye. very clever. Not crazy about the original name of the pattern, however, I did add a scatter of beads to represent the spots that appear on the leaves at the end of summer.

I have my class tools package ready. E ticket printed, insurance info printed, patterns printed and copied to my tablet. Still have some "homework" to do. Haven't packed my suitcase yet, but I do know what I am taking. My old tote bag is kitted out with all things "sheep." One hopes the airlines will not give me grief over my accoutrements.

Plans have changed and I will be flying out on United Airlines this Wednesday and coming back on Sunday. I have been waiting 15 years to go to "Stitches." I first heard about these conventions when I had the Wool Shop. It has been on my "Bucket List" ever since.
I am pressing on with my "Games" challenge piece for Ravelry. This is the closest I will ever get to competing in anything athletic. Today I expect to pass 50%. There is no way I will finish before I leave for Stitches so, I will have to take it with me.
Not looking like too much yet but we do have an eye. More pictures to follow.
Stay tuned, if you are so inclined.
