Firstly, I've got to get this off my chest or I will have a major cow. What is it in our lives gives us the right to drive like idiots on the road? Every week I drive 50 miles to choir rehearsal and every week Reid (my carpool buddy and choir friend) and I see people in all sorts of vehicles driving 20 to 30 miles over the speed limit. And I'm not talking one or two cars or trucks or SUVs. It's dozens! In rain, in bright sunlight, in wind, at night: it's every single time! I experience it in the city, in the country, on the streets, on the freeways. What is it that people think that they have to go so fast they threaten the lives around them? For the record, I too am guilty of driving over the limit, but if I drove the limit I'd be run over. And I don't care to be squashed in my Red Beetle baby. So if you're reading this and you're on the road later, pay attention to your speed and spread the word to your friends. SLOW DOWN! OK; I'm off my soap box. It's about knitting, right? Yeah.
Indulgence time. Lisa got in her shop Filatura De Crosa's Multicolor, which is a mohair/acrylic blend. The colors are exquisite! So much so I HAD to get at least one ball for me.
Since it's Christmas project time, I thought of my very good friend Mel and found the perfect yarn for her to make a lovely......oh but she may be reading this. Haha no peeking.
