...because I am going to sit in the passenger seat and knit.
My friends, let me introduce to you the ultimate in knitting transportation, the 2009 Toyota Sienna. Not only is there this:
...this meaning ample room on the passenger side door for both a work in progress and the Yarn Harlot's all-important instructions on how to turn a heel (I always forget) and kitchener the toe (ditto).
But there is also this:
room for yet another project...the handy purse hanger being perfect for holding my little sock-knitting bag.
And as if that were not already enough, I show to you the piece de resistance:
...the convenient and spacious storage contained within the passenger-side armrest! Never again - half an hour into a 3-hour car trip - will I find myself lacking a needle gauge, spare DPN, or frequently needed tape measure. Oh, joy!
I do not understand why Toyota fails to emphasize these all-important features in their advertising campaigns. They have apparently not yet discovered the influential car-buyers-who-knit demographic. Hey, Toyota! Wake up!
And no, I have not been paid for the product placement of either the Yarn Harlot's book or the KnitPicks yarn. Although, technically, I am not morally opposed to the idea....
