1. Do you have a car? We have two. They are both 1987 models, one is a Dodge Caravan and the other is a Nissan Stanza
2. Do you drive very often? Not much. I used to, but I developed a fear of driving about 4 years ago, and it still haunts me. I also don't like to leave the house too often, and it is impossible to drive in the house. :-)
3. What's your dream car? One that runs and doesn't EVER have transmission problems.
4. Have you ever received a ticket? Ummm... yup.
5. Have you ever been in an accident? Unfortunately yes. 30 years ago, I was in one that my mother clains was my fault, even though I was just a child at the time. The other was 11 years ago. A pickup drove into me (he turned without looking to see if the road was clear) and wrote off my little car. Thankfully no one was seriously hurt.
During the past week, I have finished my Prayer Shawl, finished my green tank, knit both legs on a new pair of socks, ripped out 23 rows on my FFI sweater and re knit 10 rows. My prayer shawl really needs another ball of yarn to make it a little longer. The yarn isn't great, but it is fluffy and warm, and since I decided not to give it to my former pastor, I think I may just keep it around for chilly evenings on the computer. My green tank wasn't a success either. I am still trying to work out just what exactly I don't like about it. I wonder if it is the drape of the knitted fabric. My socks are from Regia Jacquard, and they are looking really nice. I haven't used the Jaquard patterning of Regia yarns before, but I think I am going to get a few more colourways for some more socks. I really like the Regia yarn. My fair Isle sweater looks better too. I was really discouraged with it, and after ripping it out, really didn't want to reknit it again, but I managed to give myself the push I needed and got moving. The weather has cooled off considerably and it is knitting weather again. As much as I like summer, I must admit the heat is very draining. I guess it is a good thing summer is only a month long here. :-)
