“Look! A patch of blue sky! Let us chase it!” has been our motto in the Emerald Valley for the past, oh, 3 months. Then, today, out of nowhere, came the sun AND blue sky. See, I got pix to prove it:
It was much too nice to have our weekly Guild meeting inside, so we moved outside once people OTHER than me showed up. We claimed what I have now dubbed “daisy island” – a flat-topped hill next to our student union that is covered in regional wildflowers (the UO takes a dictatorial approach to that perfect, green campus look, lemme tell you). Here’s a pic taken of Janet, whilst I lounged among the warm flowers and grass:
…which fit Janet’s head nicely. Gauge? What gauge? No, poor thing, it changed mid-hat. So, we helped her sew a cord thru it, to make it adjustable. That’s right, it’s a design element. Aaand, for once, the wearer (a 1-y-old) won’t be able to outgrow it instantly.
Then I went back to lounging:
I took the pic with the two remaining balls of yarn to PROVE that I’ve done nearly this ENTIRE shawl on ONE 5og ball of yarn. Need I mention this thing is feather-light? I think I have 8 rows left on the body.
sooooooo. close. Oh, AND I remembered to take my Physical ANTH midterm online (woohoo me!) and I passed (no, I shan’t tell you the grade).
