Here we go! I just uploaded the pics from my camera last night.
I left early on Friday. My flight was at 6:15 am from Orange County to Phoenix, and then from Phoenix to Columbus. All flights were ON TIME! yay! I was able to land in Columbus by 3:30pm. One thing that I really took an advantage of on this trip was online check-in for EVERYTHING. I checked into the hotel from my phone at Phoenix airport, so when I arrived, I went straight up to my room. There are kiosks now at the front desk that dispenses your room key, so without having to a single living soul, you can complete the entire trip.

No photos yet (they’re on my new Sony Nex!) but I just wanted to report that I’m back in California in one piece.
Last day was totally hectic. I had to go to a class at 8, which ended at 9. Had a short break time, knitting with Teresa (of CanarySanctuary), Allyson (of HollaKnits & The Sweatshop of Love), Andrea (of Andrea Knit Design) and Amy (of Knitscene). Then off to meet with a vendor who wanted to have a short interview with me for their website.
And then the vendor gave me a lot of yarn samples for yarn support which was great, but I only had a small bag.. and so I had to frantically find a box to mail a package from the hotel! And then it was time to leave already. I had missed the lunch gathering with designers.
Next time, definitely going to stay until Monday!
i woke up at 4 this morning and headed to the airport! my DH was able to give me a ride before his yoga class so I was glad i spent that extra bucks to be able to fly from Orange County.
4 may sound super early for most people but not to yours truly. This actually meant that i was able to sleep an extra hour haha. My DH however, was not amused, and neither was Bagel.
Anyhow, im really looking forward to the rest of the weekend, as this is my first time in Ohio!!!
Finally, the Gentle Teresa & Andover KAL is over! If you’re still finishing up, post pictures on Ravelry or your blog and send me the links. If you don’t have Ravelry or a blog, then send stories and photos to me jdknitter (at) gmail (dot) com.
I got only a few so far so the competition is very very low. SEND YOURS IN TODAY by 3PM PST!
I’ll pick the winners today and contact them individually!
