Hurricane Girl - Ike
We are in Houston, TX to do catastrophe adjusting for hurricane Ike damage. We left Washington state on Sunday the 21st and drove through Oregon, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma and finely into Texas on the 25th. We would have been there a day sooner but our 12 year old pickup's clutch went out while at a mini-mart in Rock Springs, Wyoming. Within the hour we were being towed to the repair shop and were on the road again by 1:30 pm the next day. We just came back from a software training session. Our assignment is the gulf coast town of Beaumont and Bay Town, TX, east and southeast of Houston. We are staying at a hotel but will soon move into a townhouse (condo) in Bay Town in the next few days.
I did manage to knit some while not navigating or driving. My new project is the Boing scarf from Knitspot.com. You can also see it at Ravelry. I am using Cherry Tree Hill Sockittome yarn in the Northern Lights colorway. I wanted a narrower scarf, so I cast on 34 st instead of the 58 as instructed in the pattern. The was a quick picture taken on the balcony of the hotel and it certainly does not show the beautiful colors of this SuperSock yarn. Once I am settled in to our new place I will update the picture. Right now a nap sounds good.
