Meanwhile, writing and knitting continue. I'm taking knitting, but not writing, on the trip. And now--back to packing, the final cleanup, and the running through checklists in the hope of not forgetting anything this time--either things I need, or things I should not have in my carry-on. Deciding which socks to wear tomorrow, since they'll be on view when my shoes are in the container. The TSA rules SAY that knitting--needles, yarn, tools and all--is OK, so I'm taking the current pair of socks-in-progress and my knitting kit to ease the misery of spending several hours in the airport. A friend's dropping me off and we have to work around her doctor appointment. Better earlier than later.
Back Monday night if all goes well. Not taking anything to go online with, as I'll be too busy and frazzled anyway.
