Then a long board game session on Friday got me through a big chunk of the second Mr. Dress-Up sock, and a little more work on Saturday finished it up.
I'm wearing them today- very toasty! But that left me without a small traveling project, so I had to cast on...yet another sock.
I seem to have this sock love affair going on this winter. Possibly since it's been so cold. But yesterday was a welcome break from the big chill, and the cats got some quality time out on the sun porch. The tux boys, as my husband calls Jake and Cookie, are the real sun lovers. Probably because their dark coats let them really feel the heat. Here's Jake, soaking up some rays.
Cookie is an old hand at this kind of thing, and knows that while the sun feels good, the floor of the porch is cold. So as soon as I came out on the porch, he kept trying to climb on me. As soon as I sat down- whomp. Cat on lap. (Making him harder to photograph.)
Biscuit wanted to go out on the porch because the other cats and I were there, but he didn't really get it. All that fluff makes him kind of oblivious to heat and cold, and the white doesn't soak up the sun the same way.
|"I don't get it? What's the big deal being out here?"|
Today was still on the mild side, but overcast and rainy, so it was more of a curl-up-and-sleep day for cats, and a knit-and-read day for me. I worked some more on the vest, which is coming along, though still not to the arm split yet. The longest rows of the sweater, and they seem to take forever.
I should be getting there soon, though.
I am starting to think about casting on something else for variety, however. So excuse me while I go wind some yarn.
