Moss Stitch Jacket is speeding along, I should have had the right front panel done tonight but wasn’t paying attention enough and continued way past the P2Tog section than I should have by about 8-9 rows. Crums. So I tinked 3 rows back and I am taking a rest. Next I am going to frog sleeve one to tighten up the gauge. Graham has ordered a ribbed ski hat, the sample he showed me was in a hot chocolate med brown (Wheeless Nancy knows this Heilo colorway) with a couple pale sky blue stripes in it. He could knit this himself but he’s back at work at school and his roomie claims Graham really does nothing but study all the time. OK. The inspector loves the sweater. Ruby has adopted the gauge swatch as her own bankie and has been eyeing the jacket thinking it’s for her.
Take a look at the size of Ruby’s bunny thumpers! Big feet on this one.
When we got up this morning it had just finished snowing or ice-ing. Not enough to be bad to drive in and not very many slick spots on the road. Mid morning it snowed big dinner plate sized flakes, then it rained on top of it. By noon it was sunny and pleasant so I went for my walk. I didn’t bring a camera and it figures, when I don’t then I see bunnies and fun birds and ice sparkling off frozen leaves.
At work today I “got to” send of the rest of the rejection letters telling applicants to our graduate program that the weren’t getting an offer. Lucky me. I manage the program marketing, the recruiting and the hiring so I get to give the good news and the bad. Once they are hired they are some one else on the team’s ward.
Oh forgot to show you what came in the mail the other day! MIL Hazel made Dave and I quilted batik mug bra’s. OK I know there is a diffferent name but I can’t think of it right now. Aren’t these great!! I get to officially try mine out Tuesday morning – my only day I buy a latte. (only at my favorite place, always skim milk and only on Tuesdays when I get double punches on my card). Hey Chris – those cats look familiar…
