Our weather is nothing, if not perplex-
ing. This is week seven that I've shot this same location. It rained all night and the snow is gone. Three dogs times four legs makes for lotsa mud in a house.
The temps have warmed into the 40s and the grass has started to green. What the heck in the world, as a young friend used to ask. We are so totally not supposed to have rain in December and it's forecasted for the entire week. At least we don't have to worry about mowing the grass. After dark the rabbits move in and mow it for us.
I finished the last hat tonight and it's blocking. I always say I've knitted the last one but boy oh boy, are they seductive. They just look so good when they're finished. This one looks like mocha and whipped cream. However I am beside myself to get back to some fun knitting for me me me.
So these are the hats that I've punished myself to finish for the craft fair this weekend. I'm crossing my fingers that someone out here will realize how much they need an alpaca hat to protect their frosty head and support our purchase of a Wii. Yes "we" did :) We have had it since yesterday and fell in love with it, so when we went into town today for our annual lab work (annual physicals) we bought the Wii Fit Plus package and extra charger. I haven't been able to slog through the mud to walk and don't want to drive to town to the gym. I hope this slightly blind purchase will be the exercise solution I've wanted. Merry Christmas to me~ Please someone, buy my hats and make me merry-er.
Meanwhile, I've found time to get back into my studio. I find it hard to weave on gray days since the light is so terrible, but now that we're back to Indian summer of sorts, I cannot wait to get up there. Wait - is Indian summer wet?
I am thrilled with the colors of the baby blanket. I'm so excited to finally get some weaving done on it. Of course, we were in town today and I'm in town all day tomorrow, have an Association meeting on Thursday, baking cookies on Friday, craft fair on Saturday, please God, drag me outta bed for church on Sunday. When did I ever find time to fit a job into my life?!!
He got another pretty ribbon!
