Horror of horrors

Well that didn't take long. I had only been knitting on my beautiful rosewood needles for two days or so before catching the tip of one of them in the handle of my car door. I grabbed for my knitting bag while getting out of the vehicle in Ottawa, and before I knew what was happening, I heard the telltale 'snap.' One tipless needle. Very very sad. My father, ever the optimist, says he will try to repair it for me, since it was a relatively clean break. I'm happy to let him give it a try, but we'll see.

Thankfully, I had a 4 mm circular needle with me, so I knit away with my remaining rosewood beauty and the grey metal circular replacement. Now I've switched back to my good old 4 mm bamboo pair, but it's just not the same...

Great headway on the little tunic/dress thing for Bronwyn, my middle daughter. I won't get much done this week though as it will be a crazy hectic week for me between work, an exam, and my youngest's birthday on Saturday. I forecast EXTREME caffeine consumption.

After the Saturday birthday party, I visualize myself on my porch, knitting on my lap, and cold brewed beverage in hand. Wish me luck!
