Yes, folks! She still knits in the car.

Look, ma! I'm playing pick up sticks! While in the car!

Remember those opera-length armwarmers I knit for myself a few years ago? The ones that made me feel all Joan Jett and rock and roll? I still wear those armwarmers. As a matter of fact, I've worn them every single winter since I've knit them. They've held up pretty well but I figured that it was time that I knit myself some more in other colors so that people won't start thinking that I've got those first armwarmers I knit permanently attached to my arms. So that's what I'm knitting in the car. Thanks to my new shorter dpns [Brittany, purchased in Austin!] I've been carrying my armwarmers around as a portable project and it's my new favorite mindless knitting.

I looooove wearing these. Perfect for the non-sweater person like myself.

Of course, knitting in the car means that I have car knitting snapshots*. Taken while driving along the Saone river.

Can you believe that I haven't rented one of these bikes yet?

P.S. I've still got photos of Austin to show you. I took sooooo many photos during my summer vacation that I'm still going through them and trying to decide which ones to show. Soon!

*Again, the rules for my car knitting snapshots are as follows: All snapshots must be taken while knitting, or with knitting on one's lap, IN THE CAR. Further, the car must be in motion, temporarily stopped at a traffic light, intersection, in traffic or similar with engine always running. In no event may the car be parked, halted for more than 30 seconds or deliberately stopped for purposes of taking a photo. The seatbelt must remain on at all times, but the hand may be carefully stuck out of the window in order to obtain a good shot provided it doesn't cause any traffic accidents and even though it makes one look like a wacky camera-happy tourist.
