How are you and how was your weekend?
All of the photos are in reverse order because Blogger wants to vex me so.
We were crazy enough to take walks this weekend because the sun was out but holy cow was it 'brisk'. I put Frodo's little coat on under his harness. He doesn't like wearing it but I believe he was thankful for the added warmth. Isn't he just dapper?? Gosh, I love him so.
Because of the mini deep freeze I'm going to make my husband a pair of mittens, of course inspired by the Bernie meme. There were a few patterns trending on Ravelry and I've chosen one. I'll take some pics later this week - I am not following the brown colors though - I'm going with a burnt yellowish green as the base.
I also balled up six skeins of wool for my next sweater cast on. Stay tuned for that as well.
I wore my sweater that I finished last week and it is WARM. I believe traditional wool is warmer than super-wash wool. It felt extra toasty warm during the day and while out on one of the walks. I broke out into a slight sweat while vacuuming...
I finished the shawl in the photo below, I'm waiting for it to dry and then I'll be doing it's photo shoot.
The weekend was nice and calm - absolutely perfect! My sister face-timed me with her brand new grandson during her first visit, oh my gosh, so sweet and he is little. He is one week old already.
So how was your weekend?
