Weekend update

Kim or Matt related , Knitting December 21st, 2008

Saturday: Woke up at 10:30.   Took a nap at 1:30.   Woke up at 3:30.   Took dogs for a walk by the river.   Came home.   Took another nap at 7:00.   Woke up at 7:30.   Knitted until 4:30 am.   (I suppose that makes this Saturday/Sunday, really.   Semantics.)

Knitting until 4:30 allowed me to finally finish the garment Matt and I refer to as the Kim-snood.   Last year, about this time, I knitted Henry a snood.   This year, I knitted myself one.

For those wondering, a snood is basically a circular scarf, and when it’s made for humans, it’s more commonly called a cowl.   I find it amusing to class myself with dogs.

My snood is exceptionally warm (it’s made of cashmere) and soft (it’s made of cashmere), and because it’s so long, I can do this (Kevin will snicker):

snood-as-hood

Although I then feel vaguely like a medieval knight, my ears stay warm on dog walks, and I’ve decided warmth trumps.   Next on the list is gloves; we bought big golf umbrellas to provide coverage for both ourselves and the dogs, and exposed fingers get chilly.   (I bought cashmere for those, too — did I mention I’m on a cashmere kick?   It’s really just as amazing as everyone says.)

Sunday: Woke up at 1:00 (pm).   Sat in bed and watched TV.   No naps today.   Hey, I’m on vacation!
