It's all happening simply because I have not had the luxury to go the recent knitting events this season. I had 'secretly' pined for Knit Nation but honestly knew it wasn't possible. I quietly wished for Sock Summit but knew our schedule and budget wouldn't permit it. I'm even holding out a small strand of hope for Stitches East in October but the reality of it is that I won't be in attendance because of Hobbit's school schedule and Pokey's work schedule doesn't allow any type of wiggle room during the school year.
All of my friends who live in my computer are currently gathered in Portland, OR and having a grand adventure. I am enjoying their posts and photographs of their time during the weekend but it's getting harder and harder to keep the cupboard locked where I've shoved the aforementioned monster. On the upside, apparently there is a small fiber festival in September called "Florida Fiber-In".
It is going to be located in Orlando, a 'doable' distance, but the schedule has yet to be announced. Should I be concerned that there is no outlined plan - just a location? I know it says that it's the 8th annual (and 8 is my lucky number) and their theme this year is England (the UK is my favorite country) - all 'signs' point to this as being the place to be... but it is really squishing my OCD planning mojo with the lack of information.
I guess I'll just throw my planner up in the air and make sure that I have Hobbit, pocket money, my camera and knitting (like I ever leave the house without any of those anyway) ready to go on Saturday, September 17th because who knows what's going to happen! Anyone want to go with me?
