Reading While Knitting

Nothing complicated; nothing too exciting, but yes, I do knit while I read. As well as during many other domestic activities.

Knitting while driving

No, I don't do the driving! But, since home is full of the distractions generated by four children, being a passenger in a car is the perfect opportunity to get some uninterrupted time in on the needles.

I think it's because they're all strapped into car seats.

An outing for which I'm not driving means that my husband is going too, which makes it extra special. At any rate, two hours or so brought us to Sutter's Mill. On the way up, I had this much of the ripple edge sweater started:

After going through the museums, peering into tiny replica cabins (and all I could think of was how easy they would be to keep clean, with so little in them!), eating bread and cheese, and throwing rocks, we had done Sutter's Mill for now. I think this is my favorite picture of the whole day

By the time we had rolled past San Francisco, the sweater was this big

I am fairly pleased with my partially-garter stitch scallops for the edge. Not completely, but I'm willing to go with them and see how they work. A big shout to Janis for not adding "Duh!" when she suggested I try changing them a bit.

So it wasn't really that funny a day, if by "funny," you mean, "bickering children, crabby mother." It was pretty peaceful. And, oddly, quite pleasant.

I would never say "duh" to you. You are the mother of some of my favorite kiddos. It looks great! Glad that you had a chance to knit on it.
