Bank Holiday Weekend!

Yayyy! It's the Bank Holiday weekend, yet another opportunity to prove the theory that any time we go away in the caravan, it absolutely must chuck it down! I'm expecting storms and flooding at the very least! This weekend, we are heading down to Wiltshire, to a lovely little pub site alongside a canal. There are a few of us going, so I expect that we will be spending alot of time drinking! The couple that are joining us down there can drink for England! I don't need a crystal ball to tell me that I will probably be suffering a few hangovers! But, hey, what are Bank Holidays for, if not for partying? I'm mentally packing as we speak, although I can't actually do that until I get home tonight!
The main issue is, what craft project(s) do I take? I am currently between knitting projects as I am trying to get hold of the right sized needles for the Kittyville hat (I wanted to treat myself to some bamboo circulars, but they are proving difficult to find), so what do I do until then? I'm reading the Gormenghast Trilogy at the moment, so I'll definately take that, but I do need something for my hands to do! Maybe a panta, that's nice n' easy, and I've got to do one for a swap anyway! And maybe I could start my Star Afgan?
Got the Corgi man coming later, so we'll have hot water again! Yippee!

I've got my needles ready for the Kittyville hat now, so I'm ready to start when you are Vinny!
