A door is closed, a window opens

***
As you may recall, I agonized about whether or not to go to Stitches East. I ended up not going, and it worked out for the best -- I had a lovely weekend here at home. Shoot -- even my beloved Redskins beat their rival Cowboys at home, with a dramatic last second field goal. It was a gooooood weekend.

I had also toyed with the idea of attending the Knitter's Review retreat, but waited too late and by the time I remembered to apply, it was full up. But, on a whim, I submitted an application anyway, for the waiting list, with absolutely no expectations whatsoever.

Well, what do ya know? I just got an email from Clara -- they have an opening! So, it looks like I'm going to New York this weekend!

Now I need to figure out how to get there.... And what to bring.... I feel like I now have a hundred things to do and just a day to do them in. And I feel the need to nail down my travel arrangements this second, but I also need to go get in the shower right now and then go vote and go to TNK. Can't wait to tell everyone! :-) Arrangements will have to wait until tomorrow.

I am so excited!!!

I just followed your link to read about the retreat and now I'm jealous. It sounds like an amazing retreat.

I hope you have enough fun for the two of us, and don't forget your camera!
