My Day in Pictures.

The view of Tussy Mountain. What mountain you ask? Good question.

The view out my windshield. Rain turning to snow.

The view of my dashboard. Take a gander at the temperature....on April 23rd!

Campus obscured by a passing whiteout. 

Yes, it's the end of April and I had to pull out my parka once again.

Wind beneath my wings.....

Wingspan completed. And because I was prescient, or maybe anxious, enough to purchase an extra skein, I had enough to finish completely, and do a two stitch i-cord bind off. I should be able to make another, maybe one repeat shorter, probably for one of the mothers.

I've often read that i-cord bind offs cause puckering in the fabric, however, I use a needle two sizes larger, and I've never had that happen. It takes longer, and of course, more yarn, but I still think it is worth it.

Raveled here.

On another topic....remember my discussion of the Liesel Scarf. Said I was knitting for a relative who is ummmm.....not consistent with responses. Well, I stand corrected. I received a lovely thank you note for the scarf. She was most complementary and told me how sad she was when she lost the other.

I am absolutely delighted to be wrong this time.

Warning Will Robinson....

From arguably the WORST constitutional law professor evah.


Apparently, he was absent on the day the constitutional separation of powers was discussed in his high school civics class.....duh.

Last president to question the separation of powers was Andrew Johnson... and you remember what happened to him. If you don't there's Google!
