That's right! Ugh!
I was on my way home from my weekly ritual of knitting and hot chocolate at Folk Art When I fishtailed coming off of the beltway! Thank goodness I was going slow because of the rain and traffic. To make a long story short I wound up with my rear against the median and my nose out in traffic. Everyone was able to stop and just when I thought I was in the clear...*pow*!! Someone hit a lady who in turn hit me. No cosmetic damage (I was hit in the tire) but the axle is all bent up and I almost didn't make it home. Thank goodness everyone is ok and that the insurance co. gave me a rental ;o)
I finally got my books! And as I was sure of the other day they have all kinds of cool things I want to make. I'm thinking of doing 'Misty Garden' from scarf style as a gift for someone in my mom's group. I really want to make 'Lady Eleanor' but I got confused just looking at that pattern! LOL! I also love the Children's Cotton Hats from Last~Minute Knitted Gifts...so cute! However, I think my favorite is the Chevron Scarf, it's just beautiful! I think I just might treat myself with that one.
'That's all well and good', you say, 'but have you had any knitting progress?' Why yes I have.....
"what is that?' you ask? That, my friends, is a self~fringing shawl. The pattern is from Knit One Crochet Two. I'm using that Incredible ribbon from LB. It's ok...not much stitch definition (though I didn't expect any) and it twists up something awful! It is very vibrant and pretty though. I'm a little worried about the self~fringing part. The thought of unravelling my knitting makes me a tad nervous. But hey, you have to trust your pattern...right?
I will have a pic of little man in his finished hat next time, and hope to have some progress to show on DHs hat. I found some lovely...er, ah...manly green Brown Sheep superwash. No purple at all!
