In my defense, nearly 5,000 yards of that is in an afghan that is 90% done. And another 2,000+ yards is in two half-done sweaters. That’s almost 4 miles of yarn that could be gone from the stash… soonish.
Da Yeep has occupied one of the stalls in the attached garage for at least 5 years waiting for Smokey to replace the wiring harness. Back in the day he replaced the carburetor, and in the process caused a fire in the engine compartment. It was a small fire and did no major damage, but it did melt all the wiring under the hood. A couple weeks ago he made the mature decision to have someone else replace that wiring. (Yay!) Unfortunately, although the electrical system is now functional, they screwed up the old, old gas in the tank and now Da Yeep is 20 feet in front of the garage door and inoporable, our hired guy’s truck is stuck in the snow, and the Isuzu Trooper, which could pull everything out of their current locations is blocked in. And did I mention we got 6″ of snow last night with another 8″+ due on Thursday?
Smokey is figuring out how to get Da Yeep back into the garage so he can fix the fuel problem without being out in the elements. I always assume he will figure such things out — and he does!
We had to make a flying trip to our credit union in Minneapolis to get a cashier’s check to pay for my new car that I haven’t told you about. (It’s a 2023 Hyundai hybrid, thanks for asking, Sometime I will tell you the story about it.) While we were in the city we got together with Younger Son for dinner. I had been planning to make him a black Windschief hat for Christmas, but he is very particular about such things, so I gave up the idea of it being a surprise and talked to him about it. Turns out he already has two black hats and doesn’t need another one, but he promised to send up the knit signal if he lost one of them.
Whew! I was getting a little worried that I might not be able to get everything done in time. Now it should be no problem.
