Life's Not Fair

 I'm a cross between a Golden Retriever and Standard Poodle.

 I'm supposed to chase things,

 like that rabbit in the garden on Thursday.

It's not fair that I pull a muscle doing what comes naturally. 

 So, I go from my blankey downstairs 
to my blankey upstairs

 waiting to feel better.

 It's not happening.

Sigh . . . may as well sleep.

Nothin' Like Noro

Two knitterly things to share.
1.)  The Rowan Felted Tweed arm warmers

 are finished.

2.) A bag full of Noro Silk Garden found its way 
to my home from Main Street Yarn in Milton.
 Two colour ways were hunted down, #377 and #275.

 Noro is interesting. These skeins are all #275. . . 

 and these are #377. 
Makes for addictive knitting because the combinations are endless.

 Knit two rows with one colour then, two rows with the other.
A few months ago I made a scarf and arm warmers like this.

 A simple straightforward design transforms into something spectacular.
Noro Silk Garden is a bit 'rustic', but it does soften with wear.

Well . . . back to work.
