I’m almost finished my Tomten, and making slow progress on my Sutton Hoo Hat, Unicorn Sleeper, and St. Enda. I have to get cracking on the St. Enda — it must be completed before Jan 10 2012 because it’s for my father-in-law.
The Tomten is a wonderful pattern to knit, I barely had to look at it since it was so easy to memorise.
I feel kinda unsettled today because yesterday I had my first ever car accident. It was a fender bender and it was my fault. I don’t have a lot of experience, I’ve only been driving for a year. I hit the other car from behind, and since I was trying to merge out of my lane when someone in front (not the car I hit) short stopped, only the left front of my car and the back right of the other driver has any damage. The other driver doesn’t have much damage, but I managed it so that the headlight’s glass broke, the bumper cracked, and the hood dented. So all three will have to replaced. I feel so stupid, though no one is angry at me, not even the driver I hit (seriously, I could not have hit a nicer person), I kinda feel like they should be. I guess that means I’m angry at myself, which is true. My inability to pay attention or focus very well is probably what I hate most about myself and at least partially responsible for me having the accident in the first place.
