Solving My Husband's Sore Throat
Created By: Melody Poe

My husband and I have been married for a little over 10 years. He drives school bus for a living, so he is a good driver (I am told, no he really is). But after my eyesight started going, I seemed to be a panicky rider. My husband would get frustrated with my wincing, or yelling things like, "See that car?". He kept insisting that I was going to cause an accident.

I started sewing in the car, which really helped him out immensely. But the diabetis kept turning my eyesight worse and worse, and more panic would get into my voice. If there was anyone else who could ride along, I would always choose the backseat so I couldn't see as well.

Then my sister and her friend, who are among a group of ladies in a church who donate Christmas stockings to the homeless in Seattle, asked me if I would like to knit some hats for the project and gave me size 2-4 year olds and size 5-8 year olds. They also gave me 5 garbage bags full of yarn. Storing was the only problem. I have made over 60 hats so far, which means that everytime we get in the car, even if it is only to the store, I pick up the yarn and knit. It is so easy to pick up and put down. It doesn't matter if it is a 15 minute trip or a 10 hour trip, I never go without my bag.

His throat doesn't get so sore from yelling at me (ha-ha) and I get a lot accomplished. I realized that knitting in the car is actually better than knitting at home. Now that summer has hit, it gets warm inside, but the air conditioner in the car is wonderful (especially with personal summers).
