A-Kon Anyone?

Thursday late-morning, I'll climb on the train to Dallas and spend Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at the anime convention there, A-Kon.

It's a lot of fun, and the new venue (new last year) of the Hilton Anatole also showcases a magnificent collection of Asian art.   This year I find out if they rotate items in the collection; I'm looking forward to seeing favorite pieces again (and I don't think I saw everything last year!)   Also the chance to see artists and performers and costumes I don't see elsewhere.

When not on panels in the writing track, I'll spend a lot of time in Artists Alley, knitting while chatting with friends in the same row (A-15 is my spot) and hoping someone else comes by to chat and maybe pick up a book they missed.    I am very far behind on my knitting (thanks to many things, but largely computers in crisis of one kind or another)  so am hoping to catch up.  On the schedule in the wool-and-needles department is finishing the "seascape" short socks, which will be striped of turquoise and a mottled sea colors yarn.  And maybe some other color, who knows?
