That was the weather yesterday. And very poor air quality. Hard to breathe.
Washington was eerily quiet most of yesterday. It was very strange to glance out my office window from time to time and see virtually no traffic. I guess a lot of people took to heart the warnings about not attempting to drive downtown and stayed home. The federal government was on unscheduled leave but, intrepid little civil servant that I am, I soldiered my way into work.
Before they closed the roof of my building for security, I went up and took a photo of the Capitol. Look at that haze!
And here’s another photo with something you rarely see in the foreground: Constitution Avenue at midday with no traffic.
I did work on Ingeborg’s sleeve last night, so she is feeling a bit more loved. Compared to the body pattern, the sleeve pattern is dead simple. And it’s quite a pleasant knit.
My Sweater Designs
I’ve gotten a few questions, in the comments and via email, about when my original patterns will be available for sale. My answer is still: at some point in the future. Lucy and Luanne are being test-knitted and I’m waiting for the comments from all the test-knitters before proceeding any further. Then I’ll need to tweak the patterns as needed. And Lucky is still in pattern development stage.
Life’s too short to be dignified all the time. Play with a bendy straw!
