Leavin' on a jet plane

Hey folks, this is my last post before I leave. Several people have asked me about who won the wheel I was giving away at the sale. You can see her picture up on the shop site.
I'm in my final preparations for my trip and it is going well enough that I'm starting to get nervous that I'm forgetting something. Oh, well.
Here's a picture of some of the yarn and needles I'm taking with me. I may take more than that. Can't run out!!

I'm also planning to go to at least one yarn store in Seoul. I found out that my hostel is only one subway stop away from one. Woohoo!

I've also gotten lots of advise about other places to check out. Now that I've gotten this fabric fetish, I'm going to check out the shops around another temple district where I've been told you can get all kinds of beautiful stuff in monastic grey.

For those of you that are interested, here's my itinerary:

July 3
