Blocking, Ripping, and Knitting Again

I'm slow at posting, which is a combination of new work responsibilities and the beautiful weather making it hard to concentrate.

I therefore present the short version of my knitting life since my last post:
  • I finished the shrug and blocked. I then ripped out the edging to continue knitting. Still working (big black blob!)
  • I ripped my sockapalooza socks for time #4. I'm now happy with the fabric I'm getting, and just starting the pattern, so I hope it'll work this time. The good news is that the Bearfoot seems to be amazingly resilient to the ripping
  • I knit a pair of baby booties for H & E. Just seaming is left. They're really cute!
  • I spun quite a bit last weekend, but have nothing to show for it. That's the problem with spinning laceweight yarn.
  • Jess brought birthday cake to Knit Night, and it was amazing and delicious.
Other than that, my life is consisting of work and car shopping. It's true. I'm looking at replacing my approaching vintage 1991 Toyota Camry Station Wagon with a brand spanking new Toyota Matrix.

You know what new cars are REALLY good at?? Driving to Alabama. Yup, it's true.

Do E&H know the gender yet?? It's driving me batty (though not in a new car, so there's none of that nice car smell on the road to batty).

I have a Toyota Matrix XR and I LOVE it. It's the most comfortable car I've driven in and we take it on long road trips quite a bit. I have back problems and I love my car! Good luck on the car search :)
