Introducing Agatha:


After a long 7-month wait we picked up our MINI Cooper today. I am in love! This is one fun car. Other than Kermit, our 1958 Isetta, my husband and I have never really named our cars before, but this is just too cute not to have a name. The best part is that although Bill will drive her occasionally, I am the primary driver. Aren’t I lucky?

Yesterday was my last day of work before vacation. Unfortunately, I didn’t sleep a wink last night because I kept obsessing about work related problems. I just couldn’t let go! But after a long, long day picking up the car (2 ½ hour drive each way that ended up about 3 ½ hours coming home because of traffic), I think I got work worries beat out of me. I’m starting to relax and focus on the upcoming trip. Tomorrow will be spent running last minute errands (oh goody – a chance to drive the car!), Saturday will be getting a manicure and pedicure (my first), lunch with friends and start packing. And then Sunday we’re off!

Midst all the excitement, I did manage to finish my cloverleaf socks. No picture, just look back a couple of days and imagine two instead of one. I’m not terribly happy with them. The pattern is ok, but they’re too big for me. I was so focused on just getting them done that I didn’t take time to test the fit. I may try washing them in some warm water to shrink them up a bit. I’ve got the yarn for the Making Wave socks and that will be my airplane knitting.

I’m taking my computer with me and should be able to get Internet access while we’re there, so hope to post pictures of the wedding. Until then . . .

  1. Very cool car!

    Hope you can relax and have a wonderful trip. And especially forget about work.

    My Cloverleaf socks turned out too big also. I thought I was going to be knitting a pair of CIC socks on 36 stitches, but they fit me. Darn! I had to keep them for myself.

  2. Congratulations on your new car. Agatha is adorable. Enjoy!!! I think you will like the Making Waves sock. I think it’s easier than the CL. Have fun on your vacation. See you when you get back! 🙂
