What a weekend

Working on a Saturday just makes life suck. Having to call your mommy at 6:30am on a Saturday and ask for a ride to work is even worse. hehe It was so damn cold here that my steering column froze. I couldn't get the steering wheel in the right spot so I couldn't even try to start the truck. It was too cold for the remote start to get it going either. Mom was a trooper and gave me a ride home too. She gave it a try after work and it popped right off, so no big repair bill this time.

Thanks to everyone for the nice comments on the shawl. I showed it to Mom yesterday and her first comment was "Now there is something you could get some money from." She is always trying to get me to sell my crafts. She doesn't realize that most people devalue crocheted items and knitting takes me too damn long to be profitable. I swear I'll ask to borrow the camera soon to get a better shot of the shawl. I just so hate to ask Mom for stuff cause she already helps me out so much.

The Ella shawl that I started the other night is no more. I just did not like the way it was looking. I was using some fingering weight Mystical Creations Yarn in wool and size 10 circs. Maybe if I had used an 8 I might have liked it better. I just couldn't deal with the huge holes in the pattern. So instead, I started the Mystery Shawl 2 with the MCY and size 8s. I'm really liking it. I've only got about 20 rows done, so no pics yet. The green shawl was the first Mystery Shawl and was worked from the neck out. This one is from the point up. I also paid for membership in the Mystery Shawl3 group. That one is a square shawl. There are pics up at Bo Peep's website. Too tired to look for the link right now. :OP Kinda sucks that you have to pay for a membership, but it was only $3.

Anyways, I'm pooped and am gonna end up with keyboard marks on my face if I don't hit the sheets. Btw, what the hell was up with Tony today??? Don't know who Tony is? Then you probably don't want to or would laugh at me if you did. hehehe

steering column froze? That is just mindboggling, but maybe because I've never lived outside of California! Hope all is well with the car now.
