I finished my Jaywalkers today! Woot! After 2 years, it is about time! My dad was watching my progress on these. I had been determined to finish them before he came home from Valerie Manor, but he beat me and came home on Tuesday and I didn’t finish my knitting until today.
I can’t believe how helpful this Frog It or Finish It KAL has been. I’m getting so many projects off my plate. It is so cathartic. Next week, I will have to look for a new one.
I wanted to take an “artsy” Jaywalker photo, but I just couldn’t find a really good background so all I have to offer you is this rather silly one. Oh the things we do to display the objects of our obsession.
Happy Spring everyone and have a great weekend! Guess what I saw on my first day of spring? Do you remember Rotund the Woodchuck? Well, now I have 2 woodchucks. I saw them out grazing in my field. I thought that one was possibly a baby though it would be pretty large to be a baby. After reading about woodchucks in Wikipedia, I think they might be a mating pair:
The breeding season extends from early March to mid- or late April, after hibernation. A mated pair remains in the same den throughout the 28-32 day gestation period. As birth of the young approaches in April or May, the male leaves the den. One litter is produced annually, usually containing 2-6 blind, hairless and helpless young. Young groundhogs are weaned and ready to seek their own dens at five to six weeks of age.
What does this mean? That I could possibly have 7 to 8 woodchucks in 6 weeks? I think it may be best to not put too much effort in my garden this year, don’t you?
