After having lived in a Californian suburban city for 4 years, I have forgotten how crowded, noisy and dirty a big city can be. A trip to San Francisco brought all these sensations back from memory to live. All the people flowing from nowhere into the streets; the endless sirens of cop cars, fire engines and paramedic ambulances; the deafening drills from road work; the distinct smell of exhaust that just won't go away ... all these make San Francisco amazingly similar to the Hong Kong I remember! I don't go to the big city very often ... but I can't deny that it is a beautiful and fun place:
After spending half a day there, my senses were so bombarded that I was simply too tired to knit on the train!
Then yesterday was another autocross day. If you think you are going to see some knitting pictured on mini cones, I'm afraid you'll be disappointed. Not only did I not have time to knit, I didn't even have time for any photos. But it was the most fun time I had ... this time I was the co-pilot for Husband! Yes, I put on a helmet and went on the car with him ... and boy, was it exciting? You bet ... I fully understand the addictive adrenaline rush a car racer would experience! But it was not only this. When Husband got the time of less than 45 seconds for a run, we were both exclaiming, laughing and shouting like 2 mad persons ... he got an almost 5 seconds improvement from the first run of the day! He said that if I wanted to, he could get an old stick shift car for me to learn how to drive! And then I can take part in the autocross too! I am just afraid that I would love that too much!
I was so exhausted when we got home yesterday evening that I just fell asleep on the sofa ... not even changing my clothes! The rest of the evening passed in oblivion ... I believed I did make something to eat ... and then not much to remember!
After one night's rest, I managed to get some knitting done today. I am on the sleeve island right now and I hope I won't be stranded here for too long! I am knitting both sleeves of the Sirdar sweater at the same time. Though in plain stocking stitch, I managed to get 8 inches of both done. Actually, I can join the shoulders and work on the neck band if I get bored with the sleeves. Hopefully, the sweater would be an FO next week!
Update: Ruth tagged me for the 5th sentence of my 23rd post ... I found it, but it was not written by myself. Anyway, it is "Go visit your old friend's grave in a medeivel chapel." Weird, huh?
