I was awoken by a serious crack of thunder that made me think there had been an explosion, until I came to enough to know that it was raining, so it must have been thunder and lightening. It’s good there will be rain, as it’s been VERY dry here. It’s made for a nice spring in the sense that we’ve had days we can go out and do things, which no normal for this time of year in NH. It’s generally what is referred to as the “mud season”.
We (Dad and I) started my chicken coop. The framing is well on it’s way, and I am dead tired. We worked in the garage for much of the day, due to the weather. I’m so glad we have a garage.
I also bought some gorgeous Silky Malabrigo yarn at my LYS today. It’s a multi color and totally gorgeous! Did I say it as a gorgeous yarn? It most definitely is. I’m sad to hear that there has been a fire at the factory/warehouse, in Uruguay, where the yarn is produced. It’s unclear how much yarn has been lost or how long these poor folks will be without their facilities. Very sad.
I also bought the yummiest gray! I have never seen such a pretty gray yarn in my life. It’s not new to the store, either. One of the owners likes to move yarn from time to time, and it totally worked for me! I never saw this yarn where it was in the store, before, but I’m so glad I stumbled across it’s new location. I’m hoping to find a vest/tank to make with it. I’ve been looking on Ravelry for patterns, but nothing has jumped out at me yet.
I’m greatly enjoying my chickens. Tonight Eleanor sat on my hands while I was cruising around the internet. She seemed to enjoy the movement and the sounds of the keys. She sat quite contently for a while.
