Getting up, lunch packed, and out the door by 6:30 in the morning…
Get the teen to Lewis & Clark for her State Solo performance by 10:40.
Just ten minutes away–not a clue…he says, she says–driver licenses and insurance information exchanged. Here is our worst part of the damage:
The other car suffered most harm of the two vehicles…
They had five huge, stocky dudes–all came out with their iPhones. I told hubby not to make waves. Everyone behaved in a civilized manner. Within fifteen minutes, we were swiftly back on the road.
and got us all at the college in time
for a warm-up.
At least, no one was hurt. Rest of the day was good. The teen got to hang up in the mall with her good friends, Gabbi and Elizabeth, for a few hours.
Here I’m still attempting last piece of the recent batch of commissioned work.
I feel this will never end. Knitting it over seven times. Kid you not. Seven. I thought I got it while I was hanging out at Twisted in Portland this afternoon…I didn’t. Neither foreign nor complicated. Yet, I can’t seem to make it right?
What’s the big deal? Why not just finagle the instruction, knit the tank up, and turn it in? What’s stopping me? It’s a shop sample. That’s what. I have to knit as instructed–line by line–to a letter T.
There are a beginning and a beginning of round markers. I could’t seem to stop at those two points after the 3rd row once cast on. After forging ahead and knit-up nearly one full skein, I unraveled every stitch…
It will be gorgeous and that I’ll be very happy at the end when the whole thing is finished.
I keep telling myself that…Besides, Imperial Ranch Erin is soft on the hands with nice touch to the skin. I don’t mind so much for knitting it over again. But, as this is going slowly, surely, I need another to-go project to work on–between errands, waiting for kids, in the car to grocery shopping, or just to have a break.
At least, I got to see my designer friend Michele and had a short chat…surrounded by a few pleasant knitters too. It’s another beautiful day .
Thank you for reading my rant and a little of an uneventful day. What’s your challenge today?
Happy crafting and keep those creative juices running!
