…because it didn’t last long. It snowed here in Seattle today. Barely anything to speak of, but enough that people were freaking out on the roads and Boogermonkey learned what snow is. What you see out the window was about as much as we got, but it was enough to inspire me to make hot cocoa and have soup for dinner.
And yes, for those of you keeping track, Booger is wearing pants, albeit they’re PJ pants and they’re a size too small and he’s going commando underneath. Why all the nudity? Because he’s learning to pee in his little potty and the only way he remembers to take a break & do it is if he’s not wearing a diaper. Whatever works, right?
It started raining just past 5:30, which is totally backward, and now it’s all melted and I really hope the roads aren’t too icy tomorrow. At least it’s Sunday so not too many people will be out (in theory), but still. People here can’t drive for shit, one of the reasons I avoid driving as much as possible.
I also started Llamaface’s anniversary sweater today. It may not look like much to you non-knitters, but this is the first 20 rounds (approx. 5″) of sleeve #1 of Durrow. Please note if you plan to make this, there is an error in chart A, as well as in the increase directions for the smallest size. They’re in my project notes on Ravelry (are you there yet?).
My goal is to have this finished by 12/31. I’m modifying it to be done in the round (instead of in pieces) and raglan-sleeved (instead of saddle-shouldered). I’ll finish round 21 tonight. Each sleeve is 18″ to the underarm. 5-6″ per day, 18″ per sleeve, that’s 6-7 days for the main part of the sleeves. Then the body is all 4×2 rib, which will go faster (in theory) than the cabling on the sleeves. Figure 14 days for the 15″ of body, then another 7 days for the yoke (basically from the armholes to the neck, for you non-knitters), wash & block, et voilá, sweater!
