Just so nobody drives a distance to find the doors closed, the studio will be closed from this Wednesday until Monday, and reopen Tuesday 7/9 for regular hours. I was lucky enough to get a last minute spot in the Schoolhouse Press knitting camp #1 — this week. I do not have any idea what to expect, but the people there I’ve spoken with in preparation have been wonderful! So, another adventure. This time to Marshfield, Wisconsin via Chicago. Stay tuned and I will post pictures and stories.

I don’t leave until late afternoon, so I will pack this morning. The hardest thing is always to have any self-restraint when it comes to packing knitting. What if I get on a tear and finish what I take? It could happen,,,in some Universe. I am taking one pair of socks and the EZ pi shawl — I still have another 1300 yards of lace weight there; that really should keep me. There will also be new yarns to try there, so I’m leaving plenty of space in my luggage!

We went to see White House down last weekend. Jamie Foxx and Channing Tatum…what’s not to love? When you go see it keep an eye on the tour guide…there is more to him than you guess at first.

My son has me trying a new game app. While I was downloading it I came across the free Minion Rush, so I downloaded that too…and became possessed. It is hilarious and different every run. I could not put it down yesterday. Live those little minions! (Reference movie: Despicable Me)

Have a wonderful 4th of July wherever you are and even whether it is a holiday for you or not!
