Have you seen the Ravelry ads and Twitter posts asking how many sleeps till Frolic? Every time I see one, I get a little jolt of adrenaline and start muttering to myself about my Plan. Just stick to the Plan.
And, truth be told, I seem to be on schedule. I’ve been dyeing up a storm for the last four weeks. My house is covered with gobstoppers, draped over drying racks and furniture; I haven’t seen the dining room table in weeks. I have masses of gobstoppers loosely skeined together by base, just to get them out of the way.
According to my tally, I have 14 sleeps and a single dyeing session left– and then about nine solid hours of caking the gobstoppers so that I can get them all named and labelled and organized…
Well, maybe it’s better that I not think about it too much: just stick to the Plan.
PS: If you can’t make it to the show and you need some gobstopper love, I just sent a batch off to Shall We Knit? (Karen usually posts pics on her Twitter account when they arrive; you can get in touch with her if you’re smitten by one of them). The next online updates will be Monday 15 May at 7 pm and Saturday 17 June at 10 am (Eastern time).
