getting ready to go to san francisco

we are going to san francisco on thursday for a long weekend. trav is going to get more work on his tattoo on friday and saturday. i promised to sit with him this time, so i am going to bring a lot of knitting to keep me occupied during 12 or 14 hours of tattooing.

i'm getting my projects ready tonight. i'm going to start a hat with off-white ("fisherman") lion jiffy on a size 8 circular needle, in stockinette with a fold-over 2x2 rib brim. i'm going to use michelle's hat knitting tricks.

also, i'm going to make "tank girl" from stitch 'n bitch with recycled yarn from the thrift store plum cardigan. i'm going to make the front and back at the same time on my size 10 36" circular needle. i saw that tip in stitch 'n bitch nation - this way both pieces will be exactly the same length.

now that i have my knitting ready, i'm excited for our trip. in addition to travis getting ink, we are going to celebrate valentine's day and our fifth anniversary with a dinner and champagne at millennium on saturday night.

Sounds like a fun trip, lots of knitting time and a celebration. Congrats on 5 years! I'd love to see how the tank (and hat) turns out, I have yarn for a tank but haven't been able to decide on a pattern yet (and some Jiffy that doesn't have a purpose yet).

Good luck to Travis and his tatoo! And congratulations on your 5 year anniversary -- ooh Millenium! I have both cookbooks though I've never been. I'm sure it will be an incredible time!
