Being smack in the middle of a kitchen remodel added to the problem. Without workman coming in to measure and install the counter tops the rest wasn't happening. It still hasn't but we are surviving just fine in the chaos.
One year. Can you believe it?

The trees seem to have gotten the message also. If you look closely you can see the buds on the branches. We'll be all in shade again soon.
Everything is new outside do I started some new things inside too. The second mitten has been cast on and the thumb on the first mitten is done.

I am on the hem of Altheda. It's a 3 inch garter stitch hem so it's slow going. It puts me to sleep.

Heading straight for a tree I tried to stop myself with my hands but my mittens came off and my naked left hand got drug down the hill over the rough ice under the sled. It hurt like the dickens but I'm lucky all I needed were two band-aids worth of care on my poor thumb. It could have been so much worse. I'm such an idiot sometimes.
