Time Flies...

Would some one please tell me where the hell April went? It's seems like only yesterday I was knitting Easter elephants and now it's already May 2nd.

It was a pretty busy, crappy weekend, mostly filled with car-related issues... definitely not my favourite way to spend the weekend. Dave finally got his car back (which is nice because now I don't have to pick him up and drive him home... I love him, but I certainly won't miss being chauffeur.. I need a boyfriend who lives less than 80 km away)

His car is running good (new engine) but not perfect, so Saturday morning was spent wandering around a scrap yard .... definitely not my favourite way to spend a Saturday morning.... especially when I managed to try to ram a piece of re-bar through my foot while wandering through row upon row of wrecked GMs.I ended up with a nice sore purple bruise from my trouble. Lesson learned -- wear appropriate footwear to the scrap yard.. skirts are okay, but full foot coverage is a must.

We did find the parts he needed and hopefully the problem is resolved. He also took the time to do a much-needed tune-up on my car, so she's running a little happier.

I was also sick this weekend (no it's not the swine flu) which added to my general misery. However, I did manage to knit up a little bonnet to go with my Baby Janes.
It's the Lace Baby Bonnet by Heidi Sunday. It's a nice little pattern, though if I were to do it again, I would adjust the pattern for smaller needles.... 4mm is just too loose. I also added an eyelet band to the bottom. The lace pattern is nice an easy, and it may just end up in one of my designs one day.

Speaking of designs, I have one just about ready to come off the needles, so hopefully you'll see it in a week or two.

Oh, that's no fun! Both the being sick, and the auto stuff -- car difficulties always make me cranky. I hope Monday is going better :)

I hope this week is better.

My husband gets that having to go anywhere car-related is for me like having to go to a yarn shop is for him. Mostly I get to stay home. :)

Great little set there. Sorry about the car issues and the sore foot.
