One day until Japan!

The past two weeks have gone by super quick. None of us can believe that we leave for Japan tomorrow! Yippee! Today I worked on two of the most important parts of a trip: 1. washing laundry 2. picking out my trip knitting project.

Since we'll be on the plane for 11 hours, knitting is a MUST. I could do at least one sock in that time, but I thought I'd mix it up this time and jump on the chevron scarf bandwagon. I tried knitting this a couple of years ago, but couldn't find the find combination of yarns. I have two options that I'm deciding between.


Sunshine yarns "Into the Mystic" and some Koigu or


Sundara Yarn's current Petals Collection selection (dahlia) and the same Koigu.
I probably won't make a decision until tomorrow morning. I also have some more sock yarn... just in case.

The two things I miss the most while travelling are Maggie and Unki! But, as usual, they have no idea that Rob and I will be gone for the next three weeks.


Maggie's thinking, "Just been fed, laying in the sun... life is good..."


Where Unki is doing his best sphinx imitation - a rare moment when he's not moving.

We'll try to blog while on the trip, so I hope everyone enjoys the tales of our journey. I can promise you plenty of photos of me (since I will be the only one camera-less) and of food. Lots and lots and lots of food.
