Preparing!!!!!


Well, if my furry little barometer is any indication, we may be in for some "weath-ah" here in the great state 'o Maine! Persephone has been needy as all get-out today. The crying, howling, and pawing at Mummy until she is picked up has resulted in this being the better part of the day's activities:





And if you put me down, I will make you regret it!!!!!
Despite being Mom-on-call today, I was able to get quite a bit done. The little one did finally go down for her afternoon nap and The Sheep almost finished the Fingerless Gloves and another bobbin of the Lincoln/metallic blend. Hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to finally show some FOs!!! I'll be glad to see the end of the Lincoln! I do enjoy spinning it as it's a long-stapled fiber and, once I accepted that my lack of patience with the carding process resulted in some chunky-monkey batts that were never going to be smooth spinning, I have come up with something I rather like. Still, it's been a long haul and I'm ready to be done with this stuff.
Besides, there's snow coming! Batten the hatches, hunker down, get out your disaster survival kit!!!! Be the hearty New Englander that you know you can be! My supplies are ready:

I'm good to go!

The Sheep is going to apply for a job with FEMA. Disaster prep. is my gift.

Sheepish, I think your true calling would be the development of stress and/or emergency packs. I need to remember the chocolate for the next storm.
