Yesterday was stressful. Our
Unexpected showed up in the form of a dead truck. Dead meaning this truck is not driving anywhere.. much less across the continent.. in need of a new engine dead! Yes. A little unexpected.
Faced with an approximate two week delay in departure and a bill that I don't even want to think about there was just a little... stress.
After lots of phone calls, all kinds scenarios presented, and more than enough chocolate and coffee to keep me up for days we came up with a plan... with a whole lot of help from my oh. so. very. generous in-laws.
So we are back on track and have even bumped our departure date by a day... It's Monday!
Along with encouraging words from a sweet friend... and a few kid free hours for the running of errands... I had to do some knitting to make it through. Keeping my hands busy is a necessity. I finished one little project and moved on to another by the evening.
After taking the above picture last night I popped over the read how Annie was coming along with her Tea Leaves (I so want to knit along with her... but will have to wait for this one.) I had to smile at her solution to protect that precious ball of yarn from her animal friends.
How to you tame your wild ball of yarn when knitting?
