Back to the grind...

I was quite busy as soon as I returned from Indiana. I cut and constructed two dresses for a production of "Present Laughter" at the Zach Scott Theatre here in Austin. Remus and Abe both like to lay behind the sewing machine when I work at home. Here is Remus looking rather content to rest his head in the opening of my dutiful Kenmore. I have an Elnita, a higher quality machine, but it is having some tension issues and needs a servicing. The Kenmore is always happy to get out and handles well. I'm lucky to have an extra to fall back on.

As for knitting content, this is a closeup shot of the poncho/capelet that my mom requested for Christmas. She intuitively wore a dark shirt underneath to show off the pattern. This is the third of these that I have made and I think it is the best of them. I used Jaegger DK Extrafine Merino that That Guy brought back from Ireland. It has much better stitch definition than what I used previously.

Today was my first day of classes - delayed by two and a half days due to a spectacular ice storm in central Texas. Normal fare for a midwestern girl but not for southerners. They simply don't have the equipment to deal with the ensuing road conditions. It made for two lovely days of being a bit of a shut in. Now it is back to the grind! I'll have some icy photos for you tomorrow.

You know, some of my co-workers talked about how bored they were, shut up for 3 days, but I had no problem keeping myself entertained!

Remus is so cute -- the little white chin is exactly like my poor late Charlotte's!
