Happy Tuesday! It's a fine spring day here in the south. Over the weekend we had bad thunderstorms. I got a little over 2 inches of rain at my place. Although I had to endure Mr. Lick Lick's violent shaking and scaredness, we needed that rain badly to wash the pollen away. He was worse than I've seen in the past. I managed to give him some calming biscuits that have camomile and something else in them but they did not help at all. I cannot do anything at all while this is going on but sit and hold him as close as I can. The storm that came through on Saturday made him shake so violently I thought he might have a heart attack. It was horrible. I'm glad the storms are gone for now.
I've finished the baby blanky that I showed you a sneak peek of. I was kind of surprised at how it turned out. The stripes are not the same width. But it makes for an interesting blanky. All of the stripes are one skein each. I was going to put a boarder on it but opted not to. After much back and forth on trying to decide this, I like it plain like it is. It's done in diagonal box stitch. I really like this stitch but it sure is a booger when you go to decrease. It's hard to get used to after increasing on each row. I've never finished a blanket with this stitch so I didn't know how it would end and tried to envision it. It seemed like this blanket would never end. I was pretty happy when it did. :o)
In other news, I received my newest issue of Crochet! And guess what? As I'm leafing through it I get to page 42 and discover that I am missing pages 43 to 58!! I was so bummed. So I called them and they are supposed to be sending me another one out but I won't get it for about 2 weeks. :o(
I'm loving this spring we are having. It's an actual spring! Usually we jump from winter right into summer with only about a week of spring. Not this year. It makes me wonder what kind of a summer we are going to have. Probably riddled with hurricanes. The last 2 or three years have been relatively scant with big storms. With the unusual winter the whole country has experienced, it wouldn't surprise me one bit.
I hope your spring has sprung and it's as delightful there as it is here! Cya soon!
