You wouldn’t think you would need it from how it looks in my garden. Green and growing.

things are growing green

Not true. It has been chilly. The boiler actually worked this evening. I had not bothered since arriving home, figuring it should warm up any time now. A couple of evenings with an outside temp of 3-5 degrees wasn’t anything to worry about when I was asleep, but tonight I felt like I actually might be awake for a couple of hours.

Cold in the bedroom? Hello, Minnesota origin here. Put on another comforter and an extra layer of clothing. It is cold only if you get out of bed….

But I tried it, turned the thing on, and it worked. I had heat for three hours before it knocked off. Now, I happened to have it set to shut down after a while, so I lost only about an hour of warmth. Warm register, hot diggity! Leaning against it with my jar of peanut butter. Since I had lunch at the mess, evening became snack time.


I managed a couple of inches on the Hodge Podge Tubey

basically ripping from the old sweater and knitting on to the new
taking it apart

I also made progress on the Mole’s Vest. One armhole ribbing is complete plus three rows on the neck. I will have to see if blocking will smooth out the arm, or if the pattern called for insufficient numbers of stitches (I just love frogging). I will add more on the second armhole then see. No sense in having to do both over.

And finally, the first batch of Kippot are blocking. From “Additional uses for Soup Bowls….”

    Wait until you see the beanie book from Alice Springs – not that you want your Kippot to look like them but….it might inspire the Mole!

    Haha, I love the use of soup bowls here! Great idea, really… 😀
    I keep wondering if the vest is part of a school uniform? It reminds me a bit of what a nearby school in Wales used to have!
