strange weather (and a moose)
We have been having the strangest weather this week. Saturday and Sunday we had a huge snowstorm, which dumped well over a foot of snow on the whole of southern Michigan and followed that up with high winds and significantly sub-zero temperatures - part of that "polar vortex" thing that's been going around. Schools were out for two or three days because it was so cold. Then yesterday it got really warm - for January in the north, anyway - with above-freezing temperatures. And now I look outside and it's snowing again. (Was that a polar vortex or a bi-polar one, guys?)
When I haven't been shovelling I've been mostly inside, catching up on my tv shows and knitting madly at the incredible number of custom orders I've got on my list. But I realised I'm a bit behind at showing you some of the things I've finished recently that weren't Christmas gifts! This one was knit for the new nephew of my college roommate. He was a fun project and I think he turned out pretty cute. Hopefully his new human will love him too :)
Unfortunately my schedule and the weather never cooperated, so I don't have any nice crisp natural-light photos of Mr. Moose. But I can assure you he is cuddly!
