Tuesday, quiet Tuesday.
Yesterday I said I was going to concentrate on this so that I can be done and have it in the mail. Ha, Ha. It didn't even get unrolled.
Instead this one grew a little bit. I put it on the back of my neck every now and then. It is like wearing a cloud. Light, soft and warm. I think I may make this a short scarf though. Just long enough to go around the neck and tie neatly or to wrap once around itself if I can find some really small shawl pins or pretty broaches. Then it can be worn all day if they like as an accessory to an outfit or as a short scarf tucked around their neck.
This though, is what I was really working on. It's another square for Firefly. More masculine, because men sometimes need nice knit stuff too. I think if a family gets to the point where they don't have a home anymore, it is devastating to a man's self esteem. I know if we became homeless, the Mr. would be a mess. He stresses enough because we don't have a three month safety net right now. We are lucky though because we have an end to the debt in sight.
On another note, if you have been wanting one of these, but haven't wanted to spend that much money on one, here's a good reason to reconsider. Frozen solid. Normally this cracks plastic bottles.
Especially when they are so full that they have the imprint of the cap on top of the ice. I think that little bit of a air bubble helped take some of the pressure off, but I've seen other bottles crack for less. The real test of endurance is if it can get dropped after spending the night out in the car at -40, but for now, I am impressed.
One benefit of being an only dog is that you get to snuggle with your food dish while you eat. We still think he would love to have another dog. Someday, he'll get one.
