Vegas, Baby, Vegas!!This time tomorrow, I'll be waking up in Las Vegas. SO exciting! ;) This will be my first "real" vacation in a long time... no camping out on someone's floor... but a nice, posh hotel. I just hope we don't spend too much money on food etc... ah well, you only live once. :)
I finished the Karebear socks yesterday... well, I still need to do the chenille edging. But that will be after I get back from VEGAS! :) I started another pair last night for my california girl Linda... and I've got the yarn for another pair in my suitcase just in case. :) I am NOT, however, going to be like many of the KnitListers and ask for yarn shops to visit on vacation... the way I see it, with the internet, unless I'm supporting a LOCAL business, why not just order it? I don't quite understand the mentality where you go on vacation and SHOP. Not that I haven't gone shopping while on vacation, but I generally don't plan out an itinerary of shops I need to visit during my stay. If I see one that's interesting, I go in... it also strikes me as odd when people get all excited about going to a chain store while on vacation... is the Gap here really that much different? Same thing with the chain restaurants... why leave your home town if you are just going to go experience the exact same things? Oh well... as long as everyone is having a good time, I guess it doesn't matter WHAT they're doing on vacation.
Well, have a great week, everyone... and "see" you all on Monday!
And something for me to remember in Vegas...
