As I sit in the office, nursing a cup of coffee – trying to wake up and tap into my smiling, happy, civil side (come on caffeine!) … DH is giving me a run down on the weather predictions for the next 7 days. Michigan and I have a love/hate relationship this time of year … I love all the nice weather, hopes of spring and SUMMER(!) – but know we have at least one more snowfall/ICESTORM to come. And I HATE that! I’m all geared up, ready to start cleaning the pool, plant the garden – basically unHIBERNATE. But, it’s coming people … don’t get too turned on yet, cuz Michigan will leave us cold once more … The Big Tease!
Meanwhile, my yarn arrived yesterday … and I have been a butterfly-hat knitting fiend! I’m a little bit worried though. My children inherited their father’s big head. (It’s a gene their entire family passes on … something I would have taken into account pre-marriage and procreation – if I’d been thinking in my 20’s …) Anyway, this hat isn’t looking like it will stretch past my daughter’s eyebrows, let alone her entire head. I keep staring at the pictures in the pattern, saying ‘But, they don’t look microcephalic – they look to have a normal-sized head’ about the models … only to have DH inform my Yorkies that “Momma’s knitting a hat for you …” (Showing ZERO REMORSE for his part in passing on the mutant large-cranium gene!!)
*NOT Winston – but a small dog with a tiny hat from the internet
Finally made it to my studio yesterday … the kilns are cooling down from a de-bubble run and a recycled glass experiment. Photos to follow … Have Faith!
