Useful Housework

Of course, I did the laundry.
I wouldn't have been able to do this, if I hadn't thrown in that load of towels!Wrecking knitting sure is empowering! I guess it really isn't wrecked, just felted on purpose. Still, it is a strange, guilty feeling that I get throwing fresh knits into the wash... on HOT. And how about that bag? One cycle in my front load washer was all it took! It is Paton's Classic Wool. Nice stuff.
While I am down there...
I cleaned off the Hockey Table, as I do when I want to do fun things with knitting, and brought in my pink foam board that the ever-fabulous Mister picked up for me at Home Depot. Then I set about blocking my sweater that has languished all summer. I need more T pins.
Unfortunately, my car is in the shop. I have been driving around for a week and a half in a car that was growling at me. Apparently, I am lucky that my alternator didn't give out on me because I would have been stranded. I guess they just don't make cars like they used to, one belt goes and you are toast. *shrug* I didn't argue with the guy when I start the car and he becomes very concerned and starts wondering where he can get an alternator this afternoon. He is an honest mechanic, so I took the ride home. Of course, I didn't realize at the time that I was going to need T pins!
I'll get my car back tomorrow afternoon- not an alternator in town for my car- hopefully, purring like a kitten.
I will steal the Mister's car tonight and make a run to JoAnn's.
Now, the paper is hoping that it will make it to 55 on Friday... very motivating to get a cardigan done!

You are a maniac! I can pick you up on Thursday for knitting. Call, e-mail, whatever. Did you see the Persian Poppies on Franklin's blog? We should so definately do a Kaffe Swatch thing.

I like Paton's because it's inexpensive. Love the bag. You are a knitting fiend!

What a great idea to use that foam board for the sweater! I'm going to have to remember that one.
