Beep Beep Zip Bang
Just a quicky today...just wanted to get these pics out here before I forgot them.
Mum and I rung in the New Year (and her birthday on 1/30) with three Maine lobsters. We ate them up before I remembered to take a picture so here is the box that they came in complete with kelp that managed to squirt all over my kitchen!
There has been spinning. I finally got the orange and yellow singles that have been sitting on Mabel for ten months of Sundays plied. It came out pretty good. I was afraid it was just going to be a murky orange (and it kinda looks like it in this picture) but up close it is pretty defined reds, yellows and oranges. I wish I would have spun it thicker (It's sock weight) the colors would have made a great Knitty Fish hat!
There has also been knitting. I whipped these up for the tenants next door. I ran into the man for the first time the other day and he asked me if the baby was bothering me. I didn't even know what he meant. Apparently there is a brand new four week old baby human in their apartment and I hadn't heard her once. They said that if that was the case then they would be staying at my apartment for a few days! Baby Ella's toes will be toasty in these.And the ever present gratuitous Bentley shot. Here is the new woobie that Grammie got him. Apparently he DID need it because he's never far from it. He lays on it or if we put it over him, he naps for hours under it. Poor puppy! So abused! He's got a rude awakening coming when Grammie leaves and he goes back to his no-food-no-water-thrice-daily beatings!
