Today I made a huge mistake. I have no idea what I was thinking. Today I went out to get my car fixed without my knitting bag. (I offer the pathetic defense that I had no idea I would be there for more than 20-30 minutes.)
I know. I was in the waiting room all of about 30 seconds before I realized my mistake. I knit my Mr. Mittens thumbs in my head, and prayed that elves were hard at work at home. Alas, no.
So, $1200 and 2 hours later, my car runs fine and my knitting is no further along. (That's the thing about car maintenance: it costs a fortune to get your car running the same way it did just a few days before.) So while I paid $10 per minute for my car to run the way it did last Thursday, I managed to NOT knit two thumbs and a cast-on of the tam I'm teaching in class next week.
I will do better. I have learned from my mistake. I promise.
