The Monday Muster

Here is one guy who doesn't understand why his human won't budge off the sofa. Sick? The only thing he's sick of is the lack of play.

Sometimes it's hard to see the forest for the trees. This is one of two blue bins in the yarn room. I have no clue why the location of the Panda Cotton yarn wasn't more apparent the first time I searched the yarn room, but I'm pretty certain viral pollution had much to do with that problem.

Once again, all is well in my little knitting universe and the Pimpelleise shawl is back in play.

I had meant to take a couple of photos of the flowers blossoming in my garden for you. After all, permanent signs of spring are always welcome after such a hard winter. I just never got around to getting dressed to go outdoors and now, because this is springtime in Michigan (and nothing about that is permanent), it's too late. This photo, snapped from the shelter of my porch this morning will have to suffice.


Will somebody please tell Mother Nature that she's got her hemispheres mixed up? For cryin' out loud, it's the third week of April already!

Glad you found the yarn and feeling guilty about our mini heatwave

Poor Leo - he looks so neglected! Glad you found the yarn. Boo to the snowy flower, although I must say that it's quite lovely in an ironic sort of way.

If I don't think snow - and I would NOT do that on purpose - it looks like the crocus is taking a bubble bath! Think only warm thoughts - I know I am.

WHile we are having a heat wave in east Texas,this summer we will be burning up. I would rather be cold than hot any day.

Leo is too cute. I wish I could play with him for you.

I am glad that you are feeling better. That yarn is beautiful.

Hope you are soon back to normal. We heard from our Milwaukee daughter about their snow. Bummer.

Brenda said...

WHAT???? Snow...I had not heard that. How awful. It is better than the tornadoes though. We may get a twister tomorrow. I hope not. Glad you found your yarn.

I guess it wasn't hiding in the piano.

I told Leo to put it back - and see, he did. Giggle.

I love that pic' of Leo. He is so, so adorable.

And the snow is just ridiculous. Sorry

Oh, I don't envy you! Hope mother Nature will eventually turn around and show her warm side!

I'm in the metro Detroit area too. Over the weekend I delayed buying gas until the weather warmed up or prices went down. Neither happened.

Do you mind revealing if you're an east-sider or a west-sider, and if so, which LYS do you prefer? I understand if you'd rather not say.

Glad you found the yarn for sure. The elusive spring sun has done it again. Out one day and then rain, rain, rain, Sun today but wind wild enough to whip my dandelion hair in every direction.

Knitty, I grew up on the east side, but live west of Woodward now. I spend most of my yarn dollars in Berkley and Royal Oak.

Knitty said...

Ahh, I bet I have visited a few of your LYS. I currently hang out at The Knotted Needle in Grosse Pointe Woods. There is a great bunch of women who meet there on Wednesdays and Sundays to knit. We do try to get some knitting done while talking, munching and laughing.

In 1966 it snowed the day I was born, the last day of April.

I do love the look of crocuses in the snow.

Hopefully, it will warm up for you soon. If only I could send some of this heat up your way.
