The beach ~ Virgina Beach or Nags Head are the favs. When we lived on the east coast, we went to VA Beach at least 2x a year (spring break and anniversary). We would go to Nags Head for Christmas ~ oh what fun to run and play on the beach when everyone is at home or visiting other areas. Heehee ~ a very lovely trip with lighthouses, sand dunes and sometimes 70 degree weather. ;)
2) Where is one place you'd like to go?
At the moment ~ to the beach, its been a long time since I've been and I'm missing my oceanview. ;) I also would love to travel Europe and visit Russia again.

I also started on my monthly dishcloth kal and I managed to get 18 rows done today. I hope to finish it off by tues. Here is a pic, not sure the color yet but its kinda turquiose though this month's color was teal or shrimp ~ didn't have either so I improvised. ;)
Yarn ~ Peaches n Cream
Needles ~ #8 circs I've also made some progress on the B2S and I am liking it very much.

I believe these are very doable and I'll have fun. More details to come ~ yarn, pattern, etc.
There isn't a particular yarn that would make my stash complete ~ though there are a few I'd love to try. For instance ~ knit picks lace and sock yarns, corn yarn, schaeffer yarn, cascade sock yarn...hmm....I think I'll stop here. ;)
2) What yarn do you never want to be without?
Sock yarn ~ especially CTH and Regia, oh Drops Fabel is a fav too; I'll need to have some Cascade 220 and Sierra on hand as well ~ they knit up nice and fast. I think thats all for now though I'm sure in time this will change and expand.

Nothing else going on except I learned to knit toe-up creating a seamless toe. Its awesome, the pattern wasn't that easy to read but we did manage to cast on and it looked nice. I will be translating this pattern so that a friend and I can knit the socks. In the meantime, she has decided to make monkeys toe-up and here's what I will be doing:
2 dishcloths ~ one for me and one for my dishcloth pal
2 pair of socks ~ gentlemen socks from nancy bush vintage sock book/secret pair which may turn into toe-up monkeys
1 sweater ~ lovely B2S when I recast this week
