We have had really awful weather the last two weeks. I'm still driving a loaner Impala. I miss my car and I really could have used it this last week. Monday we had about 4 inches of snow. The Impala really doesn't like snow. Tuesday we had ice. The Impala doesn't like ice. Yesterday, we had 5 1/2 more inches of snow. The Impala doesn't like snow any better on Wednesday as it did on Monday. The snow blower broke a belt so we have a pile of snow in the driveway. I seriously doubt the Impala will be able to bust through the bottom of the driveway. Bob says it will. I sure hope he is willing to give up his Jeep and shovel out the Impala and drive that tomorrow. Otherwise, he can take me to and from work.
The back of the sweater looks great. I checked my gauge to make sure it was right. I always check gauge. The width is short 4 inches. I'm sure the directions didn't take that into consideration. I have to rip it all out and go up a few sizes in needles. There really isn't a good way to check the gauge. I will just have to try and once I get the second cable twist, check the size then.
Got my names in the basket for the drawing tomorrow. I won't be sending out the package until Tuesday since I work until 5 pm tomorrow and Monday and the Post Office will be closed.
Since I don't work on Thursdays, and the snow blower was kaput, I had to shovel some paths for Buster, the fourteen pound Shih Tzu. This afternoon I started watching The Men Who Built America on the History Channel. It is about the Tycooms who built America: Vanderbilt, Rockafellar, Carnegie, J.P. Morgan, Edison and Ford. If you get a chance, I highly recommend watching it. It is fascinating. Beats most of the other stuff on TV right now. And there are no aliens in it....LOL
