The Mouse-a-thon, that is.
We’re still bagging mice and hauling them over for Capital Animal Care, though. Which brings me to a question in yesterday’s comments — if you have mice to send and still want to donate them, please feel free to send them along. All mousie contributions will be gratefully received.
Not a whole heckuva lot yesterday. An 11+ hour day at work followed by an after-work cocktail party meant I got home about an hour before my weekday bedtime. I did tell Lucy that Mommy would be late coming home, but she of course forgot that, and demanded an explanation when I finally showed up.
She was appeased by the appearance of her Fancy Feast.
I left my Booga Bag in progress at the office, so I wouldn’t have to schlep it over to the cocktail party, which was held at a hotel a few blocks from the office. So no commuter knitting this morning.
But yesterday was a good day — the first of two days of training for our field offices on revisions we have made to the law we enforce. The training presentations I’ve been madly writing for the past two weeks were very well-received and will require only minor revisions. And the Secretary of Labor herself stopped by in the afternoon to speak to us and stayed for the break and chatted with everyone there.
I’ll be doing a presentation this morning and I’m more or less prepared. I think.
So . . .
In lieu of actual knitting content today, here’s a photo of my latest addition to my stash:
This is Araucania Nature Wool, purchased from Elann, purchased at their low low price. It’s 100% wool worsted weight and each 100 gram skein has 242 yards. I bought ten of them, in color “Allspice.” There are subtle variations in the color and it’s just gorgeous.
It even got the Lucy seal of approval!
Now . . . what to use it for? It might felt nicely . . .
