As I sat in front of the TV watching "Dr. Who" (I know who Riversong is!) last evening, I heard a tremendous crash coming from the sewing room. I got up and investigated but didn't find the ironing board collapsed, or the pizza boxes of quilt projects fallen off the counter. I even looked under the wet bar to see if the empty storage bins were newly un-stacked. Not. So I gave up and went back to knitting.
I finished two cashmere merino hat for my great nieces. This morning I went into the "yarn room" (formerly My Little Sailor's darkroom, you move you lose, Jacob). And this is what I found:
The Devil Cat of Doom, Moussa Koussa, had pushed off the bins of superwash wool. You can see they are full, so they aren't lightweight. I only hope she wasn't searching out that snake that moved into my basement last Fall . . . !
The "My Year in Temperatures" scarf is taking shape! Here is what it looked like at the end of February:
A few "below zero" days resulted in a wide pink and purple swath early in the month. The stripes are starting to migrate into blue and even green now. It's supposed to be near 70 degrees F (that's 21 C) today. the sky is Colorado cerulean blue this morning and Pikes Peak is covered with snow -- that's the reason to live in Colorado!
I bought a fun new book of quilt blocks yesterday at Ruth's Stitchery. It is a giveaway for someone who suggests a block for the Block a Day challenge on Facebook. Go to this post to comment for a chance to win!
