Saturday Sky at Three Degrees Fahrenheit.
Somehow, Madeleine talked me into going out to grab breakfast this morning and we saw bald eagles flying in this cold, partly cloudy sky. There is a carefully watched and very successful eagle's nest not far from our house. I've actually seen an eagle perched on a branch in those trees, right in my own back yard.
I'll be going out at least one more time -- to the grocery store to set in provisions for IPD and to buy the ingredients for the still undecided, but definitely slow-cooking, kitchen-warming meals I'm going to make this weekend.
There is a new Calorimetry in the finished pile. This one was knit using a few fewer stitches on 7US needles, Filatura de Crosa 127, Color 6. If I'd signed up for Project Spectrum, I'd be right on track! The button couldn't be better. I don't think it's ever been used before because it still had the rusty metal loopy thing through the holes that originally held it to the card -- I don't know when they started using metal instead of thread. I have one more ball of 127 for another of these, similar to this color but with the addition of brown, and then I think I'll be finished with them.
I was pretty freakin' timely with the Bookish Baby announcement idea for Wendy, huh? S.C. Bookish was born late yesterday and I just couldn't be happier for the whole Bookish Family. Congratulations!!
