This and that.
The Fantasi sweater got ripped too. Same reason. This yarn is not easy to pull out, but it is no where near as hard as mohair. I ripped one stitch at a time and held the old stitch with one hand and pulled with the other. Once I got into a rhythm it went surprisingly fast. It also held up very well to ripping. I'm going to change this into more of a fall jacket type thing than a cardigan. A little jacket with this stuff needs some big colourful buttons so instead of button holes, I'll knit a flap on one side and add some loops for buttonholes. If I have enough yarn, I'll even give a hood a try. I bet shortrows won't show holes with this stuff.
It rained a bit yesterday and the snow is nearly gone now. Humidity levels are starting to come up a bit (thank you, God) and so are the temperatures. They are still hovering around 0*C/32*F at night, but during the day, it is getting warm in the sun.
My shoots are doing really well and I am getting quite a few of them.
Some of you may recognize what they are now. Sshh, don't tell.
1. Are you teaching your children that violence is not the way to solve problems and that it is completely unacceptable behaviour in all circumstances by both your words and your behaviours?
2. Do you show kindness to people in little ways? Push a grocery cart across the parking lot for an elder or someone with two carts, hold a door for the person behind you? Offer to carry a bag up the stairs for someone who is obviously overburdened? Smile at the poor mother who's children are screaming in the store?
3. (Totally different subject) Are electric cars really a green alternative?
