With yesterday’s snow dump, I was feeling a little low. C’mon – it’s the middle of April. I expected a skiff of snow, some wind, but not this! It continued to snow heavily all day/evening/night. The big fella had the snowblower out twice since yesterday afternoon. Crazy.
But, the mail man brought me a huge box of goodies:
Ande is the bestest friend. She got all kinds of awesome into that box!
In addition to a fabulous bacon shirt, there is a Mo’s Dark Chocolate and Bacon bar, three tubes of tomato paste (I often bemoan the lack of culinary goods and supplies here), mood swing soap (love it!), a cosy fleece scarf for the big fella, pigs ears for the poopers! Will the goodness ever end?!
Here are Ande’s note about the hat. You can’t tell from the photo, but this lovely yarn has little pops of glitter throughout. I love it!
(you can also see evidence of my weird eye colour. If I wear green around my face, my blue eyes turn green) The swirly hat notes are here.
Someone made me socks! I got all choked up. My dear friend has come over to the dark side and made me socks! sniff, sniff! Sock notes are here. And of course they fit perfectly! I’m wearing them now!
It’s a supplement. So that means it’s good for me and healthy. And CHOCOLATE!! There was also a Lindt chocolate bar in there, but I ate it.
Thanks again, Ande, for all the spoils!
There hasn’t been much to show for knitting (so it was timely that Ande’s parcel came – if I can’t show my knitting, I can show someone else’s). The Imogen sweater really is just miles and miles of stocking stitch. And with that dark Cascade yarn, it’s not much to photograph.
I started a pair of socks last night so I could see some progress on something.
My office. I am usually aided by my trusty assistants during the work day. However, I have to make sure I check before I roll my chair back in case I roll over Apollo’s nose or Ava’s paw. There’s room enough to step through the doorway and over the dog beds and fall into my desk chair.
