I’ve spent the last few days wondering how many woolies are too many woolies. It finally turned cold (by NC standards, anyway, still no frost) and I am trying to make the most of all my knitted items…without looking like a ragamuffin. Fingerless mitts, scarf, hat, socks. Sometimes I look like a ragamuffin and just don’t mind.
But my Maggie, she’s no ragamuffin.
She looked perfectly coordinated yesterday when we went on a “bear hunt” for the cat, who lives outdoors.
We never did find Cat Minnie but we had a good, warm adventure. Fortunately, you won’t be subjected to pictures of what I was wearing. It really has me thinking that perhaps I should plan to knit a coordinating hat/mitten combo. I could at least try to be coordinated.
Then, as usual, we ended our adventure on the tire swing.
