The Amazing Lace Challenge #2
Once again, I refer you to just how much work it can be to administer a knitalong with 450+ people in it. Then I acknowledge that lately, Rachel has been doing the lion's share as I moved cross-country and had limited email access. It'll all come back in spades next week when she goes jaunting around Europe, I'm sure. So those are my excuses for getting my challenge entry in just under the wire. And now to explain the entry . . .
I had all sorts of great ideas. I'm working daily a beautiful hospital built into the walls of a canyon with fabulous views of the bay, the city, and the sunrise. It has a pool, all sorts of sports facilities, lots of clueless interns running around in Navy uniforms, and all sorts of dangerous medical supplies. The possibilities were endless. Or nearly endless.
Until I saw the sign. No photography allowed aboard NMCSD. What's a knitter to do?
I returned to my faithful trusty companion: Felix. Felix would help me out. Felix loves being on the blog. (And he's really pleased with all the compliments he gets, online and in person. I haven't bought gas in SD yet without someone commenting on my car.) What Felix really doesn't love, however, is when I put things on his roof in order to find my keys, free up a hand, etc. Usually I put coffee there. Only once have I then driven off with the coffee still there. Only once, but Felix is rather intelligent. He remembers. And today he starting blinking a warning when I placed my knitting on the roof. Felix really doesn't want my knitting blowing in the wind, nor does he want to accidentally run over it. X-tremely upsetting for Felix. The knitting in question is the Saucy Lace Aran tank, for those of you keeping track. The back is finished, and I was zipping along the front at my first-ever San Diego knitting group yesterday. Good company. Good times. I like knitters.
