1. Cable-cuff mitts- done.
2. Socks- done. This is more of the Lang Jawol yarn. Very nice. I like the patterns. (Note that I cast on the toe of the second sock on Friday night and was halfway through the cast off of the cuff when we pulled back in on Sunday. Not the fastest ever, but pretty expeditious.)
3. Alpaca sweater- not done, but after visualizing the design for several days, I reluctantly concluded that I really didn't like the transition between the two colors at the ribbing. The colors aren't close enough to blend, and they don't have enough contrast to make a good design element. So I ripped the rest of the ribbing and cast on again in the lighter color. I'm still going to have to deal with a transition, of course, but I have a plan for that.
Cookie, on the other hand, has discovered bird videos. They don't actually distract him from eating, probably because they stimulate his appetite. It's funny to watch because he paws at the screen, and then goes around to the back to try and figure out where the birds are. It's clearly not as interesting as real birds, but it's got a certain something.
|"Hey! There's birds in there!"|
|"Are they back here?"|
|"Well, how about here?"|
And now it's time for some hot cider, yarn, and Midsomer Murders on video. Pretty much the perfect trio for a winter evening.
