Vogue Knitting Live. This is my first time to attend a Vogue event and I'm anxious to experience it. Years ago, Teresa and I made an annual Christmas shopping trip to Chicago, but we've both simplified our Christmas routines to the point where a big shopping trip is not really our thing anymore. We hope to have dinner at Scoozi's one night. I crave their butternut squash ravioli, caesar salad and the bread is the best! And, we'll be sure to get out for some Garrett's popcorn. In fact, we've been known to have Garrett's popcorn for dinner on more than one occasion.
I've signed up for some amazing classes with instructors I've been wanting to take classes with for years. On Friday, I have an all day class with Mary Jane Mucklestone (200 Fair Isle Motifs), Saturday is all day with Beth Brown-Reinsel (Knitting Ganseys) and Sunday afternoon I'll get in a short visit with my friend, Susan Anderson, while I'm in her Top Down Baby Sweater class. I think it's going to be a lot of mental stimulation for me. Just hope I'm up to it!

My plan is to take my laptop along to Chicago and hopefully I'll get to send you all a report of the goings-on. Otherwise, I'll see you next week. Happy Autumn!
