Quick (but long) trip

Tomorrow morning Tom and I will drive to Virginia to get Joan and David. It's a 750 mile drive, so I'm hopeful that I'll get some serious knitting done (while Tom is driving) and maybe some reading. I'm bringing Mom's cardigan and a pair of socks for her, too. I've finished one sock and am turning the heel for the second one. (The yarn is Sockotta.) I've finished the back of her cardigan and am knitting both the left and right fronts at the same time. (Very mindless knitting so I can keep one eye on the road in case Tom needs an extra pair of eyes when we're in city traffic.)

I'll get to say "hi" to Triny and Sarah, get some Utz pretzels from Food Lion for Steve, then head over to Meg's to spend the night. Hopefully, Meg and I will have time to look through the Knitters', Crocheters', Weavers', and Spinners' Travel Guide 2006 to plot the route she, Penny and I will take through Pennsylvania on our way to Rhinebeck, NY in October.

On Friday morning we'll go to Sue's and get Joan and David and drive 750 miles back to Alabama. The girls will go to Beth's birthday party when we get back, so we'll pray that we don't get slowed much by construction or weekend traffic.

Yesterday at the library I picked up Bud, not Buddy on CD for us to listen to for part of the drive. Maybe at some point we'll pick up a radio station that carries Dick Estell reading aloud - that'll be a treat.

You are so talented! I would love to be able to make my own socks. I ordered the knitting book you mentioned from interlibrary loan and just found out the only copy they have is missing. :-P I guess I'll have to wait until my birthday and then order it. :-)

I hope you have safe travels and an enjoyable time.
