Knitting down the highway
On my way to work this morning, I reached into my bag (the one that I carry instead of a purse because a purse hurts my shoulder, but it holds far more and is way heavier than any purse I ever had in my life!) for my (new) cell phone and dialed work. Where I'd normally be cruising between 65-75 mph, I was going about 30 and decreasing, so I told my boss that it looked like I'd be late. Turns out we were almost completely stopped for about 20 minutes, plus a little stop & go action, and I was about 35 minutes late. So I reached into my other bag (the knitting bag that I carry around but don't really use much at work or in the car) and pulled out my knitting! Woohoo, I knit a whole round on my Tivoli T! The bright red yarn stood out nicely in my lap against my grass green capris.
Don't forget to swipe the Knit Red button, if you'd like, and leave a comment. I'll get a little list made up soon. To enter the Knit Red / I Have A New Nephew / I'm Going To NYC / Look How My Garden Grows Contest and possibly win a fabulous prize direct from New York City, leave a comment on any post. Period. It's that simple -- just do it by midnight on Sunday. Drawing will likely take place on Monday.
I was able to knit a few rounds over the weekend while Big Mac napped on the futon and his mom napped upstairs, but oh, very few. The stupid knitting bag keeps falling over, upside down (it did it again last night, I think it's vying for attention), so most of the action lately has involved just shoving all the knitting and accoutrements back into the bag with a promise! Soon enough, I'll have all my bags packed with much more than I'll ever need for a weekend in NYC, I'm sure, and tomorrow afternoon there will be knitting on the plane. The plane! The plane!!
Thank you all for your sweet comments and congratulations! I miss my sis and her family, especially that sweet little baby. My mom said that my baby sis told her that I saved her life over the weekend. How cool is that, I get to mother my baby sister and her baby (if that's not right up my alley, I don't know what is), and have a complete and total blast while saving lives. Where's my cape??
I'll try to post in the morning, but I haven't packed a thing yet, so don't be surprised if I don't and, in that case, I'll see you on the other side!
