Better late than never.....

I have finally made up my mind on what yarn to use for my Central Park Hoodie. I have chose Knit Picks Wool of the Andes in Black Cherry Heather. I can't wait to see what this color looks like in person. I placed the order this morning, and it's in stock, so if our luck with Knit Picks holds true, I should have this on my door step tomorrow afternoon, and no later than Saturday. I also order some Memories sock yarn in Red Hat for my step-grandmother for a pair of socks for Christmas. And I got some Essentials in Grass to make a pair of fingerless gloves for dad to wear hunting.

Also, I have made a vacation goal. I have always wanted to visit abroad, especially Ireland, Scotland and England. I have set my sites on Scotland. I have decided that within the next 3 years, as soon as I can afford it, I will be taking a week to go to Inverness, Scotland, by myself. Or with a significate other, if I have one by then. If not, then I shall go play in the Highlands alone. I have even picked out the hotel that I want to stay at. It's directly across from a castle that sits in the center of town. And there are lots of other castles and battlefields that are a bus ride away. So, I think to help myself along to this goal, I am going to design a pattern to sell. I'll pick a charity to donate half of the proceeds to, and save the other half for my trip. This way, I'll be helping others along with saving my sanity. Now, what type of pattern should I design? I know it will have a celtic theme. Should it be a scarf, socks, cardi, bag or shawl? I'm open for suggestions, so let me know what kind of patterns you'd be interested in.

I think designing and selling a pattern to help you out is an awesome idea! I'd love to see a celtic themed bag.

Also, I don't have your mailing address, and I need to send you something :-) Would you mind passing that on to me?

I think since you are waiting for up too 3 yrs to take your trip you should do 1 of each. coinsidering after you do 1 you'll get an idea of doing something else, and varity is always good. Tammi
