The 48 hours before we got the car was terrible. Husband felt restless all the time ... couldn't concentrate doing anything ... and having dreams about the car. Finally, all these are over. Elise is now safely sitting inside the freshly cleaned and tidied garage. Hopefully, the weather will continue to be gorgeous in the coming weekend ... then we can get a ride in the mountains! Yay!
A lot have beening happening on the knitting front. First of all, I have join a number of knit-alongs. Yet, most of them don't have a deadline for FO. I really can't stand the pressure of rushing through projects because I have joined a knit-along. On the other hand, though there is no real serious consequence if I fail to meet the deadline, I think it is just meaningless if one joins a knit-along and then forgets about it. Among the knit-alongs I've joined, I think ReKAL is worth mentioning. The slogan of ReKAL is "Recyle, Reuse, Renew" and I think it is very meaningful. With careful selection, we don't always have to spend a fortune on buying yarns for knitting ... and I just got these from the thrift store for ReKAL projects:
I am still in the process of unravelling the sweaters, and there is still a lot to be done before I can decide what projects I can use them for.
Talking about knit-alongs, it seems so far there is no knit-along for "Tie one on" ... which I think is not a bad thing. I cast on for the wrap on Friday and thought it would be a really quick project. However, with the car occupying much of my time and attention, I still don't have an FO yet. Hopefully, I would be able to finish tonight and post on it. Keep my fingers crossed.
