To cap off yesterday? I managed to continue today. I checked out of the hotel and left my suitcase upstairs in the room. Pure genius I tell you! Fortunately, I remembered that before I pulled out of the parking lot.
The car does not need antifreeze. Drat. Pulled into the restaurant for breakfast and saw a very busy service station right next door. So I talked to them and they said they'd fit my car right in. Turns out to not be good. I have two fans cooling my radiator. One of them has died. The repair will be about $500. I wonder if I can leave my car sitting for the summer and only drive it during the winter??? In the meantime, no air conditioner for me. Keep in mind that it is mid-June. And I am in Virginia. It could be so much worse though - it is still driveable!
And I've been knitting. Swallowtail is progressing into the nupps. I am using a crochet hook for the purl 5 together bits. And this is the third skein. I have to get at least partway through the second nupp border before breaking into the fourth skein. If I'm into the fourth sooner than that, it will involve a frantic call to Knit Picks.
And I'm working on a felted bag. I really love my little orange bag. But I'm trying to make this one a bit bigger. But just a bit.
I was getting a bit worried about how much yarn I had available. I only bought two skeins. And see that little tail? That is where I ran out.
So I measured again. And I was a lot bigger than my math expected me to be. So I ripped it all out. I got a lot done while waiting for my car to not be fixed this morning. I'm hoping that the swatch isn't telling me a lie. Because this time I'm pretty sure I'll have enough yarn.
