Unsuitable Weather for Woolies
We've been enjoying gorgeous spring-like weather here in Detroit. It was 60 degrees and sunny here today. We've been so far down in the deep freeze, that I don't recall the last time we had a day this balmy. Maybe once all of those ice crystals attached to my neurons melt a bit, I'll be able to remember. All kinds of creatures are starting to stir. The squirrels have lost their minds and have entertained the neighborhood with their daring high wire, reproductive dances.
So far, I've killed one fly, one spider and think I hear something crawling around under the family room. I see a little tunnel adjacent to the house. I have no idea what's living down there with the hornet's nest, but it may want to move out before they wake up. Dumb landlords. If they'd allowed us to have a dog, they wouldn't be coming home to find anything living under their family room. Serves them right.
In the meantime, the bank told us they'll be ready to close in 10 days.
Even though it's a little too warm to think about wearing my bulky Icelandic sweater, I'm persevering on the knitting front. In the photo above, there are only about 6, maybe seven rows until the body of the sweater is complete. The ridge line down the middle of the sweater is the steek line. The sweater gets side lined after tonight because once the body is done, I set it aside to work on the sleeves, but I'm not supposed start those until Saturday. When those are done, and they're knit in the round, too, they'll be joined to the body and I'll knit the yoke.
So what do you think? Too spotty, or spot on?
