Thaw

We’re starting to thaw out a bit here.  It looks like it’s raining ice outside my living room window!  I hope that the thawing process doesn’t cause our powerlines (currently under stress) to break!  We have one giant tree limb that is sort of suspended in midair, and I expect it to come down.  We’ve warned our neighbors to move their car, lest it get squished.

In the meantime, it’s all bobbles all the time around here.

I’ve finished the back of the Blooming Cardigan now.  It was sort of slow going for awhile, but now that it’s done I’m feeling very encouraged and motivated about the sweater.

The sleeves are going very quickly now, and I’m looking forward to the fronts.   The pattern so far has been clear and error free.

My monkeys were restarted.

I restarted with the twisted ribbing, which I prefer.  I’ve decided to embrace the pooling, as it is of a non-splotchy nature, and is sort of cool looking anyway.  I don’t think it will obscure the pattern too much, at least not based on other monkeys I have seen!

Tomorrow is the superbowl sale at my LYS – you’d better believe I will be there!  Our evening mass is canceled for the game, and I have a general dislike of most things sport related (you can blame this on me being a musician I think.)  But Marc is having a friend over, and I will get Wick’s pizza (my favorite!) so it can’t be all bad (as long as I don’t have to watch any actual football.)
