On 2 occasions this week, knitting has kept me from going utterly insane .1- had a completely flat tyre on the M40 last weekend and due to road shutting down completely about the second after it happened ( they found a dead body or something by the side of the road…) had to wait 2 1/2 hours for the RAC to show up. So… I sat on the hillside and knit calmly ( while savannah went insane ). Not sure it’s the chicest knitting in public . Don’t even ask why we didn’t try to change it ourselves…
2. Completely nuked my blackberry operating system the other night. Most forums suggested I get a new one unless I had a spare 6 hours or so.I perservered and after 5 hours and 49 mins had it up and running ( sorta- a few things are still missing, like my BBM). In any case, what kept me sane during about 17 de and re installations was my current project.Scott was quite impessed as I frequently just have a fit and demand someone else ( ie my kids) fix technical difficulties.( He would not be so impessed if he kew how I killed the phone…)
scott looks really unhappy and it’s because HE DOESN’T KNIT!

managed to knit and needlepoint on the beach in florida this year- note flamingo on bag. black yarn is a mink ( brushed from animals not pelts) and cashmere blend which is amazing. it turned into this hat.
Also did cute child’s sweater using the german self-striping yarn( schoeller &stahl). the pattern looks vaguely missoni-ish with a slight chevron. very easy and inexpensive to make. Also, saw sharks in the water (right after I’d gotten out..), ate too much and shopped too much, love Florida….

Last week was a great KIP one! This sock saw Eric Clapton last weekend ( well it really only saw John Mayer and Sheryl Crow as I was too busy acting age inappropriately during Eric’s performance!) A hat watched the German semi-finals in Berlin ( albeit in front a big screen at a restaurant). Did hand-warmers on the plane trip to and fro Berlin ( and amazingly with the same guy in the window seat both times… no one ever sits in the middle if they can help it when you knit!) warning- do not attempt grafting during park concerts!
