Daffodils and sports

Shearling The first daffodils are out in the parking lot at work!  Seems kind of globally warming early, doesn’t it?  And and I the only one switching between skating and football (I hope they let little Michelle on the Olympic team)?  Am I the normal demographic or what?  I’d give my kingdom for picture-in-picture…

Despite global warming, I still knit.  Check out the progress of my shearling sweater.  It’s not a hard sweater to knit so far, just a bit time consuming to figure out what the directions mean.  I like what’s happening so far, and I’ll probably baste in princess lines when I finish the other front piece–just because I can’t wait.  Also, I’m curious how my nobby yarn will treat me.  It’s a bit of a pain to work with but does an effective imitation of shearling.

Okay, now it’s back to first downs and salchows…

  1. In my household, we divide the year into two seasons – Fooball and No Football. Except for those even-numbered years, which contain three seasons – Football, No Football, and Olympics.
    Mind you, it’s been a long dry spell here in SF. I say bring back the Mafia and Eddie De Bartelo!
    I enjoy your blog a lot. Thanks!

  2. I still cannot believe that you are knitting a pattern in a foreign language you do not speak. And now I can’t believe that you’ve gotten so far with it. I took French all through high school but I couldn’t read that pattern. How do you do it?
