Not to brag, but we are on day three of blissful sunshine! It's funny to me that when there are endless days of cloudiness I long for some sun. Then when there is brilliant sunshine, I'm like a vampire squinting away wondering why the sun is so painfully happy. Don't worry, sunglasses cures my squinty-ness. It's a wonderful problem to have and I'll take the sunshine. Not only are we on day three of sunshine but we will have three days in a row of a daily walk. The roads are dry enough and getting my wiggles out is the best medicine.
We continue to have snow everywhere but it is slowly melting away.
I've been doing lots of journaling this past week. I picked up some snail washi tape at an art store a few towns away that I thought was delightful. I'm not fond of snails but I am when they are on washi tape. I've been enjoying winter, it's my favorite season but I'm looking forward to a thaw and the arrival of springtime.
I thought I'd so you my hat progress because my sweater progress hit a bump in the road. I accidentally followed the wrong size while doing the short row shaping...so today I'll be ripping out at least 3-4 hours of knitting. I set this sweater aside more than a day ago so I could discern my decision. I originally thought 'well one size smaller would be okay' but then upon more thinking the short row shaping would not be centered - grr.
I have TWO knitting rules:
-put the project in a 24 hour (at least) time out if you aren't sure of what you want to do
-NEVER make a major ripping out decision after dinner time (my mind is fresh in the mornings)
Frodo is looking extra fluffy these days. The groomer left more hair since he shivers so much in the winter. He looks unkempt but I still love him so much.
