Anyway, last weekend was the Chinese Grand Prix and because it was being televised live on the BBC (we refuse to pay for Sky Sports), we set our alarm and got up early to watch it. Knowing it was at 7am, I even got organised and left my knitting project out by the sofa so I could get going as soon as we were settled.
I've got a few projects on the go at the moment. But the golden rule for any race project is It Must Be Simple. Anything that involves looking up a pattern, or a complicated stitch is a no-no because at any point, the work could be put down so I can watch an overtaking move or witness a prang.
So, this week's project was a handbag that just involved working round and round in a simple stocking stitch. Nothing complicated. Which was a good job because the race was an absoloute STONKER, right up to the very last lap. I won't bore you with the details, but it was one to watch from start to finish with a good result (Congratulations to Nico Rosberg, getting his first ever Pole Position then race win!). But one of the best moments of the race happened during the winners' podium when I noticed that the trophies looked just like Wallace and Gromit's Wrong Trousers:
The next Grand Prix is this weekend in Bahrain, and although it's not a live race on the BBC, we'll still watch the highlights. Better find me a project to get going with!
