I set my kitchen on fire

yesterday evening was supposed to be a relaxing time of dyeing more yarn and cooking dinner. well, i put some eggs on the stove to hardboil, and i fired up the burner. i saw something on the burner catch, but i thought that maybe it was a stray piece of food so i didn't worry. the flames kept getting bigger. the smell was acrid and the kitchen started to fill with smoke. i began to panic. i shut off all the burners, but the fire kept on going. i had no idea what was burning and i don't have fire extinguishers, so i was worried that if i threw water on it, the fire would get worse. but i had to do something, so i doused the flame with a couple glasses of water. thankfully, it went out. it turns out that somehow the rubber ring that goes in my blender got stuck to the bottom of my pan. hence the lovely burned rubber smell. i tearfully called spicy and said, "um, i set my kitchen on fire. wanna go out to dinner?" perhaps this was not the best thing to say, as he went into damage control mode, asking me if i'd called the fire department and that i could stay at his place, as there might be structural damage. i reassured him that it was just a little fire, but i wasn't in any mood to cook dinner. so we went out for sushi instead.

at least i did finish dyeing my yarn.
Rainbow Sherbet
this one is Rainbow Sherbet, yellow shepherd's baby wool, dyed with 2 packets of orange koolaid and 2 of lemonade mixed with one of blue mountain something or other. in the interest of full disclosure, there are a couple of knots in one of the skeins. sorry--couldn't be helped.

secondly, we have (what else?) Fire Engine Red.
Fire Engine Red
red shepherd's baby wool, 3 packets of black cherry koolaid, and one packet of cherry (which did nothing--oh well). i'm calling this one a "vari-solid," as in, the results are Vari Subtle.

yarndex info on shepherd's baby wool can be found here. I really like the yarn for socks. it is soft and squishy feeling and makes cushy (but not too thick) socks, although it is a tiny bit splitty.

i come from a smoke-free, 2 cat household.

why should you care about all this? because one of these colorways could be yours. all you have to do is post a comment on this post letting me know which color you prefer and your favorite sock pattern for hand-dyed yarn. leave me a comment by February 28, and i'll use the random number generator to draw a winner on March 1. you only need to submit once. i have comment moderation set up, so it may take up to 24 hours for your comment to appear. simple, eh?

  1. Sorry to hear about the kitchen! Yikes!

    I like the Cherry solid! And the sherbert!

    But if I win, I'd want the Sherbert:)

    Yay, blog contest!

  2. Oh my favorite sock pattern for the handyed yarn, simple stockinette! No bells and whistles for me. Maybe a cool heel stitch or something.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Ooo, a contest! Count me in!

    I think my favorite pattern would have to be Monkey from Knitty. It does the wavy thing so well.

    Hmm, they're both so pretty... I think I like the red one better!

    Hope your kitchen doesn't smell too gross. Can you really call it a smoke-free household now, though?

  4. Sorry to hear about the blender ring!

    I love the red yarn, but I am biased, as I love (nearly) everything red!

    I think a hand dyed yarn deserves to show the most of it, and not be hidden with a pattern, so I'll go with Sarah, and say a stockinette sock, toe up to make the most of the yarn.

    If stockinette sounds too boring, maybe add a little lace column at the back "seam" to spiffy it up.

    ReplyDelete
  5. I love that sherbert one - so pretty! My favourite pattern for hand dyed yarn is either Jaywalkers or the Baby Cabled Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. :)

    Sorry about your kitchen! I've totally done the same thing.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Oh, gosh. They're both so pretty! But if you held me upside down by my ankles outside the window of a 500 ft tall skyscraper, I think I'd have to say I like the cherry better. As far as the pattern goes, I think something cabled would set off those subtle variations in color nicely. Perhaps the cable twist socks from hello yarn? Yes, that's it.

    Sorry about your kitchen. At least you didn't set your yarn on fire, though.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I love the red! I definitely see the color variation. I would use this yarn for the Grumperina sock pattern in the Spring IK, the ones she made for her grandma - simple lace.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sorry to hear about your kitchen, has the smell cleared yet? Glad to hear that everything is relatively ok though. So in light of the fact that the Fire Engine Red is such a fab colour and the post that this competition is part of I have to choose the red.

    The pattern I would choose is Pomatomus. I saw the ones that CooknKnit made which were fab and now I really want some Very Happy
    Anyway, take care, best wishes, maryannlucy

  9. jaywalker are fabulous for showing off colour.
    i like both colours but i love the red.

    Sucks about your kitchen, and the blender ring :(

    ReplyDelete
  11. So glad to hear you got the fire out relatively easily! (And now I want sushi!)

    I like the cherry yarn better. I think that handpainted yarn often looks best in plain stockinette, but I get bored knitting plain stockinette, which is why I usually gravitate towards solids or semi-solids. As for a pattern for solid colors... well... I don't know if I've knit enough to really have a favorite, but I did enjoy Pomatomus a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Fire engine red, baby!

    And I have never yet played with any handpainted sock yarn, but if it was for me, something simple.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Woo-hoo, a blog contest. Both yarns look quite pretty. I believe the Fire Engine Red is more my style. Um...I have not actually made any socks but I am hoping to one day be bold enough to make Eunny Jang's Bayerische socks. Does that count?

    As for the kitchen, perhaps Spicy should take you out to dinner/cook for you until you have recovered from the incident. Perhaps for the next week? jk The "damage control mode" can be annoying but it is sweet that he was concerned for you.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Oooh I love the first one! My new favorite sock pattern is the Monkey socks from knitty, but someone already mentioned those, so I'll pick the Blueberry Waffles:

    ReplyDelete
  15. I love the fire-engine red skeins!

    Favourite pattern? Well I'm a bit of a sock newbie, but I would have to concur on Monkey. It seems to show off colours really well.

  16. I'm sorry about your kitchen. But I think I could top your burnt acrylic smell. Six years ago, my husband and I had just bought this brand new stove that was big and you had room to cook. Well one evening I went to use the oven to cook something (which I forgot what it was) and I emptied out the pots from the oven. (That's where i keep all of my pots and pans.) SO, I start up the oven and after a while this nasty plastic smell started to fill the room, along with smoke. I looked inside the oven and saw that I forgot to take out my MIL's white colander, which she had for years. It melt onto the oven rack. We ended getting rid of the melted creation and airing out the apartment for more than an hour cause the smell was soo bad it was aggravating my daughter's asthma. Also, just recent I have a tendency of melting my hubby's phone charger. I don't know how. It just happens.

    By the way, I like the red one.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Good thing it wasn't a crazy fire! Kitchen disasters always seem to be kind of freaky. As for the sock yarn, I absolutely love the cherry--it's so bright and rich! And I don't have any kind of bright bold color like that in my stash (I'm more of a purple and earthy-tone kind of girl).

    I know it's been mentioned a few times, but really, I love Cookie's Monkey pattern for hand-dyed yarn. The lace pattern is just simple enough to keep the yarn colors from getting lost in the texture.

    As for bolder-color variegated or striped yarn, a classic stockinette with a 1 1/2 inch rib cuff is just beautiful on its own.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Fire Engine Red!! And a favorite pattern? ONE? Oh my, well, maybe IK Embossed Leaves? I love mine in STR...

    ReplyDelete
  19. 'ello dere, steezah here from le forums. I'm sorry to say that I laughed at your fire story. Not because I'm a horrible person no, but that I've had that shit happen to me too!

    In my former apartment we had a crotchety old stove that you had to crank up to MAX just to get it going then adjust after its been on for about five minues. Anyways, so I do just that, plop my pot and some sesame oil in the bottom to heat up and go into the living room to put on my ipod+dock for some cooking music next thing I know the tiny apartment was filled with smoke and the oil is on fire litterally 5ft tall!! I freaked out and put a cover on the pot in hopes of choking it out, but when I opened the lid again I did it a little too soon as it flamed up again and I lost some of my eyebrows!!

    Man. Lol. My apartment reeked for days.

    Oh right, this was about socks. I've never knit socks before but if I was to (win)try I'd vote for fire engine jaywalkers. Everyone's knit them atleast once and I've heard no complaints. GL with the contest!

    Steez

  20. Delurking from the knittyboard because I'm always up for a contest! I like the red one the best, I love semi-solids like that, and I love red.

    With a hand-dyed yarn, I like to try a simple stockinette sock first, because I think it shows off the colors the best without being muddled by a pattern. If it pools or flashes bizarrely, then I'll rip it and go with a Jaywalker--the zigzags use up more yarn, so something that fails in stockinette will be pretty much guaranteed to behave differently in a pattern like that, but the colors still show very well.

    Ugh on the fire. Rubber smell is the worst. I hope the stench dissipates soon!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Wow! Sorry about your kitchen. That smell is so hard to get out of stuff.

    I love the sherbert.
    I'm still newish to socks so I don't have a favorite pattern yet. I'm looking forward to making a pair of jaywalkers soon though.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Rainbow Sherbet! I just love anything yellow! My favorite pattern is Knitty's universal toe up socks.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm a sucker for red and it looks great with Cookie's Monkey pattern. I'm working on a pair with Lorna's Laces Bittersweet.

    So sorry about the kitchen fire. Had one years ago and keep a small extinguisher next to the over now. Of course, it's so old it probably wouldn't work if I really needed it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the red! (And I'm dying to make a pair of Monkeys...the red would make gorgeous ones!!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sorry to hear about the fire! At least you don't have a hall full of people to piss off if the fire alarm went off ;p
    Anyway, I LOVE the fire engine red.

    ReplyDelete
  26. love the red one, they would look great as monkey socks.. but i'm too far away for receiveing these, so i just wanted to say that these yarns don't come from smoke-free household anymore, not after this:)))

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love the Sherbert colour! It's totally making me crave ice cream, but I'm stuck at work. :(

    My favourite sock pattern for hand dyed... hmm... currently I'm loving the Heelless Sleeping Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks. Just enough of a pattern to keep me interested, but it shows off all the lovely hand-dyed colours. Oh, and the purl bits make for interesting striping.

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Fire Engine Red is my pick for Ann Budd's Seduction Socks.

    I'm glad to hear your fire incident did not turn out more serious.

    ReplyDelete
  29. wow. you have a lot of lurkers, apparently!

    my old roommate once caught our toaster oven on fire trying to make a quesadilla (she'd put oil on the tortilla or something, and it just ignited). i was the one who unplugged it, grabbed some towels and calmly picked it up, put it in the oven, and shook a whole box of baking powder on it to put out the flames.

    luckily, she didn't mind cleaning it up...

    i like the fire engine red. and i've been meaning to make RPM for awhile, but i'm still plodding slowly along on red herring first...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Fire Engine Red!
    Toe-up and cabled, with a short row heel!
    Best contest ever!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I like them both! Is that allowed? =)

    How about this approach.

    For the Sherbet - I'd do a simple feather and fan with a plain stockinette foot. For the fire engine read - the Embossed Leaves. By far my favorite sock pattern and with handpaints that are nearly solid - a winner. Gorgeous.

    And the bit about a smoke free home? Um...according to the beginning of your entry - not so much. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  32. ooo... pretty things. It's like offering candy to babies luring L&V peps over with an offer of yarn! I surfed around a bit, fun blog. Your dying all looks good, the colours are super saturated.

    I would have to go with your red wool, and as for a pattern right now I'm working on the monkey socks and loving them. My post on the last pattern I tried (over on L&V) was that following is the way to go, when everyone else is loving a pattern is has to be for a reason!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The dye job is gorgeous. Not having a fire extinguisher is not shiny at all. They are not expensive and can be bought at any sort of store like Target, Wal-Mart or Home Depot.
    Please go and get one at your soonest convenience. :-)

    Salt and baking soda will douse fires in the kitchen too. It covers it and cuts off the oxygen the fire needs.
    I am just glad you were not hurt or your home damaged so as to be unlivable.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I really like the red a lot. I love semi-solids. But I'm inexplicably drawn to bright varigated colorways so I'll have to go with the sherbert. That's how I never end up with "neutral" accessories. ;)
    I like the slip-rib type pattern for handpainted sock yarn in One Skein Wonders. I think it'd be interesting with the sherbert.
    I can't wait to try the Monkey pattern. I think the red would look nice in that pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  35. oooh, the red one is delicious. I like Knitty's Monkey, like a lot of people here, or Hedera, by the same designer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Oh dear, I thought you were going to say your yarn had been set on fire when I first started reading that! I love the sherbet one - lovely colours in it! All time fave sock patter is tiptoe thru the tulips (never made them, but they look awesome!) but I like the good ol' "wendy's generic toe up" socks - especially for that sort of yarn - who want to mess with that. Might put a few mini cables up each side though...

  37. Normally I like multiple colored yarn, but that cherry is too wonderful! And if you want my first born, I can loan him out. He eats a lot and requires daily hugs ;)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Oh, I forgot, my favorite pattern is the simple design your own from the Ann Budd book of patterns :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. SO fun to have impetus to come over and goggle your yarn. Enjoy the blog too. Have to admit I have just cast on my first knit sock, so am off to google everything y'all have been talking about...oh, and I looooooove the red!

    ReplyDelete
  40. As I was reading, I was afraid you'd set your yarn on fire! Hopefully a new blender ring will not be hard to find!

    I'm partial to your Vari Subtle Fire Engine Red.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Hey! Two of your blog entries made it to my I Like it a LOT Tuesday blog entry reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Another vote for monkey socks here! I think the yellow orange green is fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  43. You have no idea how many things I have set on fire in my house while trying to cook. My husband, however, just sets the house on fire while trying to kill things (yes, dear. setting fire to the wasp nest in the mud room was a GRAND idea). The yarn came out wonderfully, though! :-) And sushi was a wonderful idea.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like the Red. Jaywalkers is a good pattern for hand dyed yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi there. I came over from LnV, and I really like the red yarn (the sherbet is pretty to though). I like to knit plain stockinette socks with handpaint, or occasionally Ryan's Dublin Bay socks because the pattern is so subtle that it doesn't really interfere with the colors. You did a dying job!

    ReplyDelete
  46. I looove monkey from knitty


    and fire engine red

    ashleygirl2005@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yikes on the kitchen fire! But hey, sushi as a backup dinner sounds good to me. ;)

    I like them both! Can I put my name in twice? :) If I *had* to pick one, I'd say...Fire Engine Red. That would be a great one to show off the Embossed Leaves pattern! (I could see the Rainbow Sherbert in Roza's socks from the new IK.)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Once when I stayed home sick I caught our toaster oven on fire! Just the toast crumbs in the bottom - luckily I kept my head and left the door shut and let it burn out. Still hard to explain to my mom, though!

    As for the sock yarn, for ones like the top yarn I would do something simple like Jaywalker or Dublin Bay or another lace or cable inset.

    For nearly solid yarns I like to do fancy patterns and let the subtle variation show through.

    If I won I would love the red yarn (out of character but so pretty!)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Oh the Sherbert is my favorite. I love stockinette stitched socks. Boring I know, but it is me.

    Don't feel bad, I was boiling some pork ribs to make them a bit more tender prior to BBQing them, and forgot about them being on the stove. Yep, they caught on fire. The smell was terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I love the Fire Engine Red.

    My new favorite patttern is the Waterfall Rib Socks from Sensational Knitted Socks. It has a good texture but is not overpowered by a multi-colored yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  51. i bet that was scary, i hope your kitchen will be ok, my favorite sock pattern is jaywalkers.
    both yarns are amazing but i really like the red one

    ReplyDelete
  52. I like the fire engine red, seems appropriate for the subject matter at hand. I haven't knit these yet, but they are next on my list and would look lovely in a subtle handdyed colorway: http://www.magknits.com/Feb07/patterns/falling.htm

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sorry to hear about your kitchen. That is actually my greatest fear related to cooking.

    Both skeins are gorgeous but I especially love the fire engine red one.

    I've only just broken into sock knitting but I have my eye on many a pattern. This is one I just saw: http://www.millharrow.com/weblog/front_content.php?idart=146&idsel=178

    ReplyDelete
  54. I like the fire engine red the best and I'm not terribly adventurous with my sock patterns. Every sock I have knit is from Ann Budd's book of multiple gauge patterns.

    Both are beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow, they're both gorgeous! Jaywalker is my favorite sock knit, and they'd look fabulous in that red!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Burning rubber is awful - I don't blame you for going out to dinner!

    I like the red, because it reminds me of the red socks my great grandma used to send my brother and me when we were little (although they weren't nearly as pretty). I like simple stockinette socks for hand-dyed yarn, although I have to admit that's at least partly because I'd be too worried about mistakes with anything more complicated. Maybe someday I'll have the skills to do the fancy patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  57. i like the cherry better - but only because i don't like wearing yellow.

    not t'riffically original, but jaywalkers do look lovely with variegated handdyes. they are more interesting than plain stocking stitch, but not too busy.

    i also want to try out the lace heart and cable sock pattern on magknits (can't remember the name). i think it's got enough solidity to work with a subtle tonal variegation (in, say, cherry red ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  58. Ooooh I love the red! I would make the Falling in Love pattern from Magknits with it!

    ReplyDelete
  59. OH my your poor kitchen! but yay for sushi.

    I have to say my fave is the sherbet.
    As far as favorite pattern. I like a good whale ribbed sock.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I love the Fire Engine Red. Awesome color that will match my reddish suede maryjane style Birks. I would probably do a simple ribbed sock or maybe try it in the jaywalker I see is so highly thought of. By the way I love how spicy jesses socks look. He will adore them.

    ReplyDelete
  61. So sorry to hear about the fire.
    I really like both colors of yarn. If I have to pick one, it would be the Cherry. I'd like to try to make the Monkey socks.

    thanks
    Densie

    ReplyDelete
  62. That red is exquisite!

    My favorite sock pattern for hand dyed yarn is Sockbug's River Rapids socks... wavy, but mostly stockinette to show off the colors!

    ReplyDelete
  63. That red is gorgeous! I've been on a slightly variegated single color trip lately.

    Something like that needs a pattern with a bit of interest so it doesn't look boring, but not something that's overwhelming because the color of the yarn should be in the foreground. Anastasia and Elfine socks are probably good for this. I also love Conwy for darker yarns. I'm knitting them right now for my sock pal, and they're turning out great!

    ReplyDelete
  64. I love the red yarn!
    I'd probably try a pair of jaywalkers.
    Glad your fire experience was a short one ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I just got back from a mini vacation ....I almost missed the contest - YIKES!!!
    Anyway....I LOVE the red and my favorite pattern for hand dyed?? changes all the time/depends on the color/ fairly simple/ but with a little pizzaz (like the bit of lace on Dublin Bay)/ or zigzaggy/ or not....
    maybe I should switch to the rainbow sherbet - it is wilder - out of my normal range...no, no I'll go with the red!
    OK - I'm done.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love the Rainbow Sherbet! My favorite pattern is Monkey, but I haven't made it yet... it's pretty though!

    ReplyDelete
  67. I'd go with Fire Engine Red Jaywalkers! Thanks for your generosity!!

    ReplyDelete
  68. i love Rainbow Sherbet and would make jaywalkers

    ReplyDelete
  69. Red is my favorite color and, since it's a solid, I'd like to do a lacy pattern --maybe one from my new Interweave knits Favorite Socks book.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Yikes! Sorry about the kitchen!

    I love the red yarn...love at first sight! Anysocks by Cookie A. but I love Baudelaire best :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I love the red yarn! And my favorite pattern for handdyed is RPM from knitty: to show off the beauty of the yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  72. mmm--RED! I love the fire engine red.

    And a favorite sock pattern? hmmm. Jaywalkers look good in hand dyed yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I really like the fire engine red - is the darker red "black cherry" and the lighter red "cherry"? I have only knit a few pairs of socks - the first plain stockinette, a cuffed rib pattern, the Sock Wars Socks of doom, and a pattern of my own design. So if I was lucky enough to win your sock yarn, I would use the Smoking Hot Socks pattern from http://yarnloopie.blogspot.com/index.html

    ReplyDelete
  74. hmmm. I like both too! I'm leaning towards the sherbet though.

    as for sock patterns, it depends on how the yarn colors play out. I made a chevron pattern once, but the colors were a bit overwhelming for it. I started an alternating rib (from SKS) with a differnt colorway, and I LOVE how it's turning out, so I'd probably find another one similar in SKS

    ReplyDelete
  75. hm, i don't think my comment worked! I like the red yarn and the only sock pattern I've ever really done is Jaywalker. But I'll agree with everyone else and say that for handdyed yarn, simple stockinette is best!

    ReplyDelete
  76. I love the red, and you did a WONDERFUL job of it!!! It is so beautiful, and finding a varigated in dark reds is almost impossibe, as well as when you finally find one, it seems to clash with itself!!! Can you tell I am a lover of anything red?heehee
    If I were to win, I would want the red for sure-but the sherbert is very pretty, too! I left you a post at knitty, as you can see I finally figured out how to post!!haha
    again, GREAT JOB WITH BOTH YARNS!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sorry to hear about your kitchen...did that myself a couple times.
    I love the Fire Engine Red yarn. I have not made any yet, but I think the Falling In Love socks would look good in this.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Fire Engine Red! It is sooo pretty! and I think I would make the Rosa Socks.

    ReplyDelete
  79. the red--Not that the other colorway isn't beautiful--but red sock, like red shoes.. everyone should own a pair.

    they are sexy, and childish, loud and cozy. they are warm and playful and just the thing everyone should own. and that red is everything a red sock yarn should be.

    as for favorite pattern? i don't know as i have one.. the pattern i am working on is always the current favorite..

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh jeez, can I ever relate to this post, our microwave spazzed out a few weeks ago and started cooking things with too much power. One extremely scorched bag of popcorn and one visit from the fire department later (no fire, but LOTS of smoke) we were left with a lot of stink.

    The fire engine red is gorgeous! I think it would look great in a small cable pattern. For less variegated yarn, I like cable-y patterns, for more variegated yarns, I like ribbing patterns.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Amy (saw your post on Craftster)2/28/2007 02:12:00 PM

    I love the sherbet, but the red would look gorgeous as Anastasia's socks! (pattern at pepperknits.blogspot.com) Just like the red yarn, the pattern is simple but interesting. I also like the way the two feet mirror each other. :)

    Glad the fire didn't put you off finishing these yarns.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love the Sherbet, so pretty!

    I'm not sure about patterns. I just completed my first pair using the Baby Cable pattern in Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm hooked now and the socks look great in the hand dyed yarn.

    ReplyDelete
  83. EEKS~ kitchen fired can be scary! My MIL lost her whole kitchen in a fire. It was a disaster! I'm glad you're okay.

    I LOVE your sherbert!!! I must say, I do love the Monkey pattern. I get bored w/ stockinette, so this keeps me entertained :o)

    ReplyDelete
  84. i like the sherbert, and my favourite pattern is monkey from knitty. i haven't knit it yet, but i saw a closeup of someone's project and it's yummy!

    ReplyDelete
  85. The red is definately my favorite. For an almost solid my favorite pattern so far has been Nancy Bush's Childs First Sock from Knitting Vintage Socks Book!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Day late, Dollar short.
    Dammit.

    ReplyDelete
  87. You said, "it come from a smoke-free home..." But didn't you just set your kitchen on fire? :)

    Sorry... Just teasing. I find that it's better to laugh at situations like this because we just get bummed out otherwise. You came out of it safe and with the roof in tact. That's the important thing!

    I love the fire engine red, btw. SO pretty!
