Sometimes a Monday feels like such a letdown.
Especially if you've had a good weekend with your college freshman home, and you had a couple of nice homemade dinners and went to see a movie and worked in the yard in the bright sunshine, and then on Monday you had to put him on the train after he walks his sister to school, and it's raining and you have a cold and your gut is all wrenched up because of some food you ate that does not agree with you. (Stupid gluten.)
But. Then there are people who are MUCH MUCH WORSE off than you and you consider them and you sit down and make a really warm sweater:
And even that cat gets in on it.
Project for the latest a4A campaign. A thick sweater for a child. I need to have it done in three days. I even got the yarn for free, if you are on the mailing list they told you in August that they have some yarn from a generous donor (not saying who at the time), all I needed to do is send them a check for 1st class postage.
It ended up being this gorgeous handdyed yarn from Blue Sky Alpacas, a 50/50 blend of wool and alpaca. Enough for a whole sweater.
I am sure I can fit this in between naps and rice crackers.
