We are in the middle of our Summer traveling. That means many weekend trips throughout the tri-state area. All three to five hours each. And anything more than one hour in the car is too much for me. So I have a new thing to keep from whining. Books on tape (the Sue Grafton series and Stephen King for John) and NPR movie reviews on my iPod and car knitting. In Summer I have to knit different things from in Winter. I can't stand to knit hot, wooly or fuzzy things in Summer. So I've been knitting chenille washcloths. It has a good Summer feel, it is all garter stitch and the needles are an 8. All good things for the car.
I am not a fast knitter and don't want to be. Knitting is a meditative thing for me. A pleasant way to pass the time. For me it is the journey not the destination.

Happy Knitting! Rae
