you take the good, you take the bad...

well, I'm just gonna stick with the good and try to ignore the bad. but I'll give you the bad news first. this is what I saw on my way to work this morning. thank goodness I filled up over the weekend, because this was not appealing at all. I feel as though it's time to invest in a bicycle. or maybe some good running shoes. and, is it at all ironic that I feel the need to sell off some shares of my oil stock just so I can afford to buy gas?

but the good news is that I've made some actual, visible progress on the shawl! now I've got a whopping two pattern repeats and it's starting to look like what it's supposed to look like. the only thing that I'm a little concerned about is that it seems awfully narrow. maybe it'll grow with some good blocking, or maybe it'll seem bigger when I lose some of this leftover baby fat. who knows? regardless, it'll be forever before I finish anyway. but I'll continue to chug along. like a really slow-moving train. "I choo-choo-choose you!"
