It's still pretty cold out but we couldn't stay cooped up another day. We still had all those sad trees out in the yard that had come down in the storm so we spent yesterday sawing and hauling wood. As cold as it was, it was actually a pleasure to get out in the sunshine and as they say....there is no bad weather, just bad clothes. We were layered up.
Pup was layered up pretty good too. I forgot to mention that the vet also told us she had cataracts and is losing her vision which is exactly what happened to my last Yorkie. Dear Departed Pup went blind at 6 while Replacement Pup has made it to 8. She keeps falling down the stairs so I suppose I should have known because it's the exact same thing that happened with the last Pup. Time to get the baby gates out again. Sigh....
I was layered up in my favorite sloppy sweater which made it easy for me to finally pick a color scheme for the Holm mittens. I don't have any mittens to match this particular sweater and I have the yarn colors in the stash so I've cast it on. I didn't get very far because all that yard work wore me out.
I was also tired from staying up late the night before getting Number 5's parts all finished and attached. I have found I can knit much faster if I take the chart and turn it into something my brain likes to work with which seems to be columns of numbers and symbols. These last two sleeves just flew by.
