Yes!!! I finally booked my flight to Minneapolis for the 22nd of March and it is a non-refundable ticket so I can’t back out, which what I normally would do! I am so terrified of flying which does makes for a great reason to call the doctor and get some Xanax so I don’t have a panic attack and accidentally jump out of the plane (or someone might just decide to push me out when I start screaming that we are all going to die).
The weirdest part is that I work at a place that makes jets… so how can I be afraid to fly? This is very easy to answer… first I don’t like heights, second I don’t get to fly in our planes, third I’ve only flown once up to Chicago and lastly this time I have to travel all alone – no one to help me or hold me hand!
So being from Savannah I don’t have many winter clothes or they actually aren’t made for anything below… ummm 45º F…. and I haven’t knitted me anything this year so I think I’m either going to be going broke buying clothes or I’m going to freeze solid walking out of the airport and my baby will have to take me somewhere to get me thawed out (ok, well that could be a lot of fun).
I guess I’m going to take the 3 hours to do some knitting. Now since I have only flown once and that was like 7 years ago I’m not sure the best way to bring my knitting on the plane and what I can or can’t bring. Can someone help me?
I wonder what my project will look like after a few pills, panic and maybe a drink – this one will be fit for framing or just FROGing it!!! Maybe I can make a hat with ear flaps… that is something I was so need!
Can ya tell I’m excited about going… wow!!!!
So here are the boots I was thinking of getting but I’m not sure what girls wear up in the North since winter boots are just not needed here for any season.
Tell me what you think about them....
But when I sent this to my friends for their opinion this is what one of them drew for me:(its me in the boots – that is without a head or hands… boy that is creepy).
So I’ve decided to start a hat for me to wear… maybe something like this one?
It can be found at Knitty.com
Or this might be easy and fast… even warmer (oh what a great word… WARM).
This one is actually at Martha Stewart Living, if you can believe that.
I even love the scarf. What kind of yard do you think they used for that?
If I get really excited I might start tonight and even get to make a scarf… this one would be awesome! I just have to quit talking to that boy of mine all night long!
This is actually a Lionbrand Pattern!!
I can not wait to get up to the freezing cold… JK… but going to see my guy AND going to the Mall of America is so worth it!!!! I just hope I remember to bring everything I need to keep me warm!
Maybe the local headline won't read:
Poor Stupid Little Georgia Girl Freezes to Death on the Streets of Minneapolis!!!!
