As in that’s how many degrees Fahrenheit it was this AM when I begrudgingly woke up. I have to say that this is one of the coldest, snowiest, longest and most irritating winter’s that we’ve had in a long time. I looked on Accuweather for an extended forecast, supposedly warmer towards the next week and then cooling down again. Spring, muddy paw prints and all….I’ll take it at this point.
Today marks the end of my three day weekend. I felt like I was fairly productive on some levels. Thanks to Beth at work, I started a diversionary project of a “my so called scarf” using some Malabrigo. I also am making some progress on my Man Mitts. I started the index finger yesterday. I’m a little hesitant about doing separate fingers. I’ve never attempted it before and I hope that I don’t end up with huge gaps between. I am I-cording them simply because I can’t see using 3 dpn’s on such a small area. We’ll see…I just hope they turn out OK.
Mr. Larj has been getting a bit more fill in work at his two contingent jobs. I just wish he could get something really steady. Having this little bit of extra work has really helped to ease my stress level at least a little. I don’t have to tell anyone how bad the economy is but here in Detroit…we’re really taking a hit.
Off to pick away at the glove for a little bit before I start to wrap up the loose ends around here and get ready for my work week. The good news is that the days are getting noticeably longer, doesn’t that mean that spring is right around the corner?
Everyone have a great week….
BTW…my Ex-Mil received her stole and LOVED it 🙂
