Rogue Hood and the deadline approaching...4 days and counting

You guys must feel all kinds of special...3 blog posts in a week...and I think I might have a couple more coming, hopefully, when I'm done with my hoodie. Friday night I had this much done:
and now:
I still have to graft the very top of the hood but I'm gonna need some help with that so I will bring it to knitting tomorrow night and have the Knitting Nazi's whip me into shape. So I have it blocking and I'm going to work on the sleeves relentlessly until they are done, hopefully, by Wednesday for my Knotty Knitter's night in case I need help with that. OFFF, my deadline, is approaching quickly.

Last night I was working on my hood until around 2am and I just couldn't stay awake. Went to bed and tossed and turned for a few hours and got back out of bed at about 4:30am and knitted until daylight. My mind wouldn't relax. I knew I was just a couple rows away from finishing the hood and it was buggin' me. Plus my mind was racing about OFFF and having some of my knitting friends ride down with me. We all have our own agenda's, I know I have mine, but I just want to make sure everyone has fun and I don't offend or piss off anyone. Really, I know I worry too much but I can't help it. My knitting buddies are all nice quirky people and I'm excited to spend some time with them outside of just knitting night and Seattle.

What to pack, what do i want to look at or buy, where do we want to eat????...AAAHHHH!!!!! I know I want to get spinning fiber, a Woolee Winder (for sure), and tons of yarn-age. One of the Knitting Nazi's is talking about maybe getting another spinning wheel which doesn't sound like a bad idea. I'm so excited to see what I can see, hang with good people, and be out of town without the tribe o'children.

BTW, do you like my zebra pajama bottoms?

Nice hood!!! I especially like your pj bottoms. Oh did I tell you I found "THE" yarn for your scarf project?! And I'm working on it when the house is nice and quiet!
Have fun knitting :)

2 days and counting! I'm finishing mine tonight. Keep going! You can do it! I know you'll finish and even wanted to put some serious money on it, I wish the brats would have accepted and I would have had more money for this weekend! I like the wooly winder. I may get that instead of a new wheel. Fiber vs. wheel... How often will I get to meet the maker of my wool? See you Friday!
