WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS

I blame this all on my good (andy slightly crazy) friend Lynn and her knitting for the dead (you don't want to go there) . . . so okay here's what happened this morning . . . I think that I am now able to write about it without bursting into laughter . . . I was on the net at work when what should pop up on my screen but instructions on "HOW TO KNIT A CAR COZY" (really I was looking for some legal stuff for the boss . . . I don't know HOW a knitting instruction page got on my screen) . . . well I just had to be in one of those quirky moods because I started laughing and couldn't stop (others in the office had to answer the telephone) . . . tears were running down my face . . . the whole bite . . . I must have been quite a site for when asked by fellow employees what was funny all I could do was laugh harder (they do not understand the way of the string) . . . so I'm pleading with my friends that if you ever see me buying 95 balls of Lion Brand yarn at the semi-LYS that you will quickly take all checks and charge cards away from me and get me the "hell out of Dodge" until the mood to knit a car cozy passes and I promise to do the same for you!!!!!! Hummmmmm . . . I wonder if anyone has really tried to knit a car cozy???????

OOOHHHH MYYY GOD! A car cozy! Does it really take 95 skeins of yarn?? I think we should all pitch in and knit it. We could all contibute to it from our stash - you know, extra bits of yarn left over from projects. We could set a goal and enter it in the fair next year! Bring the pattern to our next get together! I love it. PS: what site were you searching that CAR COZY came up in your search??

Your final package is on its way to you! It might not get there before the official end of SP8 but it'll be close. Hope you enjoy it! Also, I agree with Roni's comment--just say no to car cozies.
