Reason 183: Rain Delay

alt_hereSo many reasons why nona loves to knit -- let me share with you Reason 183, Rain Delay.  Early this afternoon I settled in at the Stanford tennis courts to watch the women's NCAA semi-final team matches.  In a break with tradition, the skies opened and the rain fell.  Rain?  In May?  In Palo Alto?  Did I mention I rode my bike?   While others left, or grumbled, or snoozed I found a seat under the canopy and pulled out my knitting.  What a pleasant way to pass a rain delay -- knitting on my Habu vest.  How long can the Rain Delay last anyway?  Three hours later I had finished 2 more panels of my vest, the courts had been squeegeed several times, and the skies had once again opened up.  Time to call the nona-hubby for a ride home -- but what a pleasant afternoon I had.  When I've got my knitting, I'm happy.

I seem to be spending a lot of time sitting in cars and vans while others windsurf at the moment :-( At least I'm keeping on top of the knitting pile, and with the weather we have had around here in the last few days it is probably the best thing to do ( torrential rain and hail storms!)

That sounds so peaceful!

I can't remember what I did before knitting, during moments like that. Knitting is one of the most amazing things that has ever happened to me!

That sounds lovely. Knitting soothes those "in-between" times so well.

Can't wait to see the vest.

What a great way to pass time! Now I always bring something to work on ... just in case. The only regret I have is not learning how to knit a lot sooner.

Yep - I don't mind waiting at all when I have knitting tucked in my purse to work on. Always seems to garner me a group of interested folk with questions, too :-).
