From the record temperatures of the month or so ago, to tornado strength wind and flood warnings: never a dull weather moment here. I'm hoping that the wind doesn't do any damage. It's expected to pass through soon. This morning it was barely drizzling at our house, but at the dam it was dark and the rain was teeming down. The puddles were huge. Gilly thought they were fabulous.
I didn't take my raincoat and so after a few minutes I was soaked and then there was no point in worrying. Peri and Gilly has the best walk for ages and even met Rafa, whose Dad is as mad as we are and walked in the rain too.
I was rather pleased I washed all Peri's rugs and blankets earlier this week. Now she can be ensconced in sweet smelling glory outside the back door. She actually likes one blanket to protrude out, so she can survey her domain and part of the next door neighbours' domains as well. Peri is very loyal and tonight when I came home she had been waiting in the rain and the wind for me at the gate. Miss Lorelai Gilmore was inside all snuggly warm and asleep. She's still a baby.
And now, when you least expect it, actual knitting content. Marvellous green multi Waikiwi wool and bits and bobs from the Little Purls of Wisdom Knitty pattern. I call them Purls Before Swine socks. Ann inspired me to finally buy some of the lovely Waikiwi wool. I'm glad I did, it is lovely and soft and beautiful to knit with. I only started yesterday afternoon and knitted all the way to the heel turn. I'm half way through the gusset decreases because I had less knitting time today.
