Nothing like a little automobile drama to push you back into knitting.
My car decided that it was time to have an electrical fire. You can imagine for a mom with two kids under the age of 6 what kind of nightmare that could be to be suddenly without a car. The kids preschool is 6 miles and two buses away. It's not like we have money for a new car, we barely have enough to get this fixed, which could cost either $500 or $1500. That's a lot of yarn.
This was a pretty traumatizing event. I had to call the fire department and it left my nerves all frayed for the next day. For the first time in weeks I felt the need to knit. I've been so busy with kids, the preschool and the renters coalition that the idea of knitting seemed like more work rather than a way to unwind.
I dug out my sock project happy to see that I wasn't too far from knitting the toe. I must be out of practice because I keep messing up, forgetting to decrease. Or maybe it's because I've actually taken some time to watch some tv I like and knit at the same time.
Turns out tho, that the best way to take care of myself is to pull out the knitting. I gotta do that more often.
