No sunrise visible this morning; we were socked in. No matter; I love the way fog cloaks the familiar and makes it beautifully mysterious.Jackson and I pass this artfully painted shed every time we go jogging, but this morning in the fog, Jackson apparently saw the moose for the first time and perceived it as a threat. He's much more suspicious about new things and new people than other dogs I've had; he's definitely a "watch dog."
I finished the Pitt Island roving on Sunday (yes, the same day I started it -- woo hoo!) and selected the baggy of organic white Icelandic lamb roving to spin next. It's already half spun!
Yesterday I stopped at Fred Meyer, which is, for those of you not familiar with this Northwest chain, like a Super Wal-Mart -- nearly everything under one roof. As I walked by the clearance clothing racks to get to the groceries, I saw a sweater with sheep on it. Of course I had to stop and look at it, but it was a size small. Oh well, I am on a self-imposed sweater-buying ban, because I can - and want to - knit some for myself. But it was really nice! I looked on the other racks to find a larger one, but no, that was the only one. I succumbed; into the shopping cart it went. I figured I could return it if it didn't fit (I had just worked with horses and was too dirty to try it on then.) But to my delight, it fits perfectly!
That's it for now at . . .
