No, I didn’t see that guy again yesterday. Thankfully.
One of my coworkers cheerfully told me (after I regaled him with my rat tail — er — tale) that another agency in our building is having serious rat problems in their offices. Eeeeeeewww!
I am sometimes the first person in the office in the morning, which means also I’m turning on the lights. If I ever see — or even hear, for that matter — scurrying when the lights go on, I’m history. Outta there.
Q & A
Is there any particular reason why you don’t knit both sleeves at the same time? Especially since they are knit flat…
I don’t knit both sleeves at the same time because I don’t see any advantage to it. I can knit them faster one at a time — that way I don’t have to keep track of two balls of yarn. I always keep track of how many rows or pattern repeats I knit, so there’s no problem with making the sleeves identical.
I am trying to use your method for 2 color knitting–i.e., one strand over the left middle finger and one strand over the left index finger. While it feels clumsy yet, I like the results. How do you thread your yarn on the rest of your hand? Do you thread both strands together or thread them separately? Do you bring the yarn up between the baby and ring fingers and wrap it around the baby finger or do you lace it over the ring finger?
The answer is that I don’t thread my yarn on the rest of my hand. I just have one color over the index finger, one over the middle finger. It works for me. Your mileage may vary.

I gotta whole lotta mousies going on!
Received many mice in the mail yesterday — from Beth L., Susan D., Leslie F., Margaret C., and Bonnie T. Look at the total mousies received in the sidebar. Wow! Thank you, all!
And Lucy says thank you for all the catnip scented tissue paper!
I’ll close today with a dark blurry photo of Max’s second sleeve. Have a great weekend, everyone!
