100% Chance of Rain

You would think, with the near perfect knitting weather (temps in the mid 40s, rain and more rain), I would have lots of knitting to show off. Not so. My life is now totally dictated by the sporting events of my two sons. You might further think that spending many, MANY hours a week at a soccer pitch or baseball field or track meet would provide ample knitting time for such a devoted knitter. Again, not so. See weather conditions described above. With my body rigid with cold and rain dripping off my glasses, knitting is impossible.

So I'm sleeping too little and working on this at night. It's definitely stay-at-home knitting with it's chart and many colored, easily tangled strands.

It's a safe expedition into intarsia. Safe because the whole thing will be felted when I'm done and that should hide any joining indescretions. Those of you who know me (heh,heh, aren't I cute to pretend that strangers - in fact, anyone not related by blood or marriage - actually reads this blog?) might be surprised at my choice of colors. Do they seem out of character? Do you like them? I think I do, but it's a bit too early to tell. They just called out to me.

Ooh, I love it! (Those are MY colors!!! :) It's beautiful! I'm jealous of the in-progress photos. The benefit of controlling one's own destiny. I mean camera.

We are having Juneau-ish weather ourselves here today. Of course, after two weeks of gorgeous warm dry weather, today is opening day of T-ball.

Maybe I'll stay home and knit ...
