Packing for Chain Link

Packing for my annual trip to the CGOA Chain Link conference is always an interesting experience.

First I need to choose a minimal amount of clothing.  I want to have plenty of room when heading back to fit all the wonderful yarn I won’t be able to resist.

Then choose crochet items to go with clothing.  Why haven’t I made more stuff for myself lately?!  Ugh!

Look desperately thru sketch pad and stash for quick projects and yarn to make up a few nice items.   Get lost and distracted by the stash, the sketch pad and the stitch dictionaries.

Completely cover guest bed with the various items I want to include.

Re-discover pieces I forgot about, check to see if any will work for this trip.  Realize that I’ve got 10 more ideas I want to create proposals for to bring with me.  Realize there are only 5 days left until I leave for Greensboro.  Run around in circles screaming with waving arms, frightening the cat and amusing the children.

After finished with above exercise resume packing in a calm and orderly manner.  Make sure not to forget the chocolate.

  1. LOL! You sound like me when I’m getting ready to come home to the States AND even worse when I am coming back to Saudi and trying to stuff all of my new yarn goodies AND dark chocolate! I see you love that too! Those bars look divine! Where do you get them?
