The 2009 NASCAR Sprint Cup season kicked off last Sunday with the 51st (?) running of the Daytona 500. After a slightly-more-than-two-month-long off-season, I was more than happy to watch cars drive in circles at 190 mph. Between an ill-timed caution flag and a rain-shortened race, Chimmie finished 30th while my friend Rebecca's driver took the checkered flag. Better luck in Cali, boys.
As my geeky little NASCAR-lovin' heart was goin' pitter-pat, I didn't get a great deal of knitting done while watching the race.
I had originally used this yarn to cast on for Francis, Revisted but decided I didn't like it, so I ripped it and now I'm using the Brooks Farm for its originally-intended project. I worked on it during the drive up to Whitetail, but since I'm the World's Slowest Knitter (trademark pending…okay, not really), I only have about 3-4" done. Of course, I just remembered that there was errata for this particular sweater, so there may be a trip to the frog pond in my future. We'll see.
Does anyone watch Leverage? LOVE. IT.
Oh, and I finally cast on the dreaded second Boyfriend sock. Still love the yarn and all, just so hard to muddle through those pesky second socks.
