Single for A Week

Roger just took off for a week-long trip stateside. He's going to the furniture show in High Point, then golfing in Myrtle Beach, SC. I tried to hitch a ride south myself - but Roger said he'd be in deep doo-doo if he brought a "girl" to his golf junket.
So I have my week well planned. I'm going to be knitting, knitting, and knitting; having popcorn and wine for dinner every night and sweatpants will be the uniform of the day. I'll probably fit in a trip to a LYS while I'm at it. I haven't been to my favorites recently, The Little Red Mitten in St. Thomas and London Yarns in Hyde Park. Since I'll be in that area today, I will make an attack on MaryMaxim in Paris. I still haven't been to Needles & Pins in Ancaster. If you haven't been to Ancaster, get off at the 403 exit and drive through this pretty little Federalist-era town the next time you're in the Hamilton area.
I'll also be trying to knit/crochet some of these beautiful flowers in the new book I got, 100 Flowers to Knit and Crochet.
I'm waiting with baited breath for my new order from Jimmy Bean's wool, The Knit Kit. On the outside there's a yarn snip, a tape measure and a stitch counter. Inside there's a pair of needle tip protectors and stitch markers and a little pair of TSA-compliant folding scissors. It got rave reviews from the hard-sell crowd at Ravelry. Thanks to all the Ravelry ladies who turned me on to this amazing little gadget. I can't wait to get mine.
Have a wonderful weekend!Thanks for reading.
