My opinions (and I do have a lot of them) on knitting and sometimes other topics.

Not even remotely about knitting

Totally off topic, but very fun. Today was the annual Bastille Day celebration at the Seattle Center. My business, Mais oui! had a booth where we sold French made items and handed out lots of our catalogs. One of my favorite parts about the Bastille Day fun is the Citroen car display brought to us by one of the local Citroen Car Clubs. Way back in 1971 when dinosaurs still roamed the earth I was smitten with a Citroen SM. At the time, they were running about $11K out of the showroom. (Not to mention the modifications that had to be done to a French car at that time.) Needless to say I never got one. But I have longed, nay LUSTED after one ever since! The photo is of me standing next to a Citroen that is NOT an SM. Since there wasn't one there, (insert lyrics, "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with") I had to settle for what was there.

I shall not be deterred from my goal.

The long and short of it

Just a short post on my progress with Sexy Knitters Club Tempting II. I started on June 20 (I couldn't wait!) and have been picking at it nights and during car rides. I have gotten to nearly 16 inches so far. The pattern calls for my size to stop at 15.5 inches, but being a tad long waisted I decided to go the extra inch. (Oh, baby! The google hits from those last 2 words!)

I will probably be posting sporadically in the next month or so. Selling my house and moving.
