the yarn that could have killed me
i don't know what more to say without this become the longest post ever, but i was in a car accident this weekend on the way home from picking up the loaner mini cooper (have i mentioned the dealership is 40+ miles away?). i am ok, just a sore back, along with my friend who was riding with me. the car took it pretty well (we were rear ended on the freeway), still driveable, but something was rubbing against the tire so we had it towed back to the dealership. i am again without a car.
and you know what? the major reason i was in that time and place when the accident occured is because i went to get socks that rock from the madrona fiber retreat. it was so close to the dealership where i was picking up the loaner i couldn't resist. so ulitmately, my 3 skeins of socks that rock nearly killed me (ok that is bit dramatic and i don't really think that, but it does make for an interesting story).
and to start this week off on a terrible note as well, this morning i got a call from the dealership saying that the damage to my car was in fact NOT the transmission, but rodent damage not covered by my warranty. i nearly fainted. thank goodness they have run into this before and told me that my insurance would cover it. they were right. so far the damage is at $1400. now comes the challenge of figuring out how to prevent this in the future. do you get that? rats. in. my. car. GROSS!
i did finish a new trekking sock though. and instead of casting on for the second, i started a new pair with the car accident socks that rock (shown above - color tidepool).
