The Netherlands

Yes fans of this blog. We are going to the Netherlands unless HR fails me. I have the passport and am planning on leaving at the end of April. After my lace knitting conference in Denver with the client. I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO EXXXXXXXXXXXCITED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have never been to Europe so this assignment should be interesting. I will be gone until the end of the year at which time I will take a couple of weeks of without pay to explore. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I will e-mail some of you with another e-mail address, but do not send any chains or jokes. Period!!!

The scary part for me is what to do with the Baby Honda. I LOVE my car. I am considering selling it and purchasing a new one. The other scary part is my tree which was moved from KS to TN. It was given to me when my father past away 9 years this April. It reminds me of him and the good memories. Hopefully I will have a friend come and water it every 2 weeks.

I will purchase a digital camera. I even know the make and model. So Nell get off my case!! I have already purchased a 30GB Ipod and I am loving it especially the part about only downloading songs that I like. I do not have to purchase a whole album.

The other main concern I have is going to Europe with only two suitcases. I am a woman who enjoys her clothes and yarn. I am high maintenance after all. Stop laughing!

But I know my lovely readers will want to know if I am planning on visiting the client in Italy? Of course, I have to make sure she is welcomed as the great talent she is on both sides of the pond.

Miss ya all.

Just bring one current knitting project with you for the flight over. When you finish that, you can go to a local store and buy yarn (1/2 price of US) for a new project.

Also, since it will be summer when you are there, European women don't tend to wear shorts very often. Skirts are a popular choice and keep you surprisingly cool.

I agree with Kama...knitting retreat!

You'll have to find out if it is true that you can buy Rowan for 1/2 the price it is over here. Then you'll have to start taking orders. lol.

I am so happy you get this great opportunity! Enjoy your iPod (I've got a Zen Micro, and adore it), and I can't wait to see some pictures!
