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.

Traveling Jaywalkers – Pair Number Two
: Jaywalker by Grumperina
Thoughts: A wonderful pattern – great attention to detail.  I actually just came across my post from my first pair in Sept. of 2006.  What is interesting to note is that some things don’t change as I was looking for more time in my day back then too. Crazy life!

Needle and yarn

US 1 / 2.25 mm

Knit Picks Bare – Superwash Merino/Nylon Fingering Weight
1 skeins = 462.0 yards (422.5m)
hand dyed by me a long time ago (I know I have a blog post that went along with this, but I just can’t find it.)

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?
