Too Tired To Knit
I spent all day today driving my rig through this terrible ice storm that's pounding Oklahoma. Now I'm just too tired to knit. I'm sure if I tried I'd just mess it up.

Ah well, that's the great thing about knitting; it'll be there tomorrow.

My daughter has taken a job in Yuma AZ and just spent the last 4 days driving from Michigan to AZ. They just missed the ice in Tulsa but got hung up in Flagstaff last night. They finally made it to Yuma today.

After dealing with untenable roads, you need to chill out, as my kid would say. The yarn will be there tomorrow. Glad you made it to your designation safely.

We're expecting the snow tomorrow, Sunday and Monday. I'm praying it misses us, but I guess that's too much to ask for.

Glad you made it through the icky weather safe and sound.

I've been too tired to get much knitting done this week, too. Nothing simple on the needles, though as tired as I was, I probably would've messed up garter stitch.

I'm with Stine, to tired to knit this week! Garter stitch is beyond me at this point, so resting is best! Every once in a while we just need a break because I'd hate for us to knit and royally mess something up and then get frustrated with it!

I hope you can rest well, Mason!

Having to concentrate so much really does take it out of you. You are right, it will be there tomorrow!

That cane really is cool! My DH has made at least a couple dozen canes...nothing that fancy though.

Good morning folks. Whew! I really was tired. I put n a DVD and lay down on my bed. I think I was out before the opening credits finished.

Thanks for the comments. And yeah, I think the cane is pretty cool too.

Ah well, having my coffee and getting ready to get back out there. If I make good enough time today I may have some time to do a bit of knitting this evening.
