It remains ridiculously cold here. Bitter air from the Arctic has settled upon us and does not seem to care how very unwelcome it is. It is cold during the day and even colder at night. My poor girls have been in the coop under the stairs for days now and are likely to remain there for awhile. I am glad we have that option for them, but they miss being outside. (they have no idea how cold it is out there.)
I have been spending a lot of time by the stove knitting and have almost finished my latest sweater. I used Donegal Tweed yarn so it is going to be toasty warm.
It still needs the ribbing for the neck and then the sides can be sewn up. I am not sure how I will do the lacing yet, but I don’t think I will lace it all the way up. I hope to finish it this week end.
Fergus spends lots of time napping on his couch, but he still gets his walks. He doesn’t mind the cold.
Today he found a great stick to play with. He has always liked sticks and even now that he is a very “mature” dog, he enjoys finding, capturing and chewing one from time to time.
And so it goes. It is not my favorite time of year and I continue to dream of Spring. My primroses remain cheery and that helps. And today..
It will be awhile before any crocuses emerge from the frozen ground outside, but eventually they will. This will have to do until then.
Stay warm everyone!
