I'm thinking that when George Air Force Base was built here because we have sunshine almost every day of the year, it must not have been planned in an El Nino year! We've had clouds every day for the last week or so, and that's just unheard of.
Eight more rows to go on the Ishbel shawlette. There have been a couple of "oops" rows, but I'm thinking no one but me will ever know. It's dark, so the color doesn't show very well, but you can see a bit of the design now.
Speaking of knitting, today I received the kit from Dye Dreams' Four Seasons Mitten Club for the Winter 2010 mitten. I (and a few others) suggested the name in a contest that Wendy Johnson held on her WendyKnits blog. She created the design, and I was the first to suggest "Celtic Frost," which was ultimately chosen as the design name. Thank you Wendy and Dye Dreams! The yarn is blues and greys, and soooooo soft. I can't wait to finish Ishbel and socks so I can start the mittens!
