The sleeves won't get finished unless I get to working on them, though. Sleeves are stubborn that way.
Construction work is still going on. (Yup, still. But there are rumors of an end looming next week!) On Monday I was surprised to find out that there was going to be some natural gas work in our yard. It was a nice change from the water main/sanitary sewer/storm sewer/street/sidewalk work going on along the south side of our property. This was a one-day project on the west side. I wonder if their diggings will also be reseeded as part of the Grand Project?

While I was picking up sticks under the willow tree this week, I found some very pretty colors. I couldn't resist bringing some inside to photograph.
One of my forthcoming knitting projects is a Jayne Hat for Filius. After much ado, I got the yarn ordered. Due to a glitch, I had to repick the colors from my computer monitor. The yarn came in on Saturday ... and we decided that the colors were Just Too Wrong. Filius found a blog post detailing a rather detailed person's analysis of the hat and appropriate colors, so I ordered those. Once they come in, there will be a 6-7 hour hiatus from the gansey to get the hat done. It'll be cunning.
The garden has been taken in, with the green tomatoes stashed in the basement for nice, slow ripening. I'm still enjoying fresh herbs and lettuce from the garden, as are the bunnies. In a few weeks, the pace of life will slow down even more (pleeeeeease!) as the weather suggests that outdoor activities be curtailed.
I just finished reading Captains Courageous, by Kipling. It was an excellent way to spend 3 sessions on my indoor cycling trainer, and it's a wonder I hadn't read the book before. Next up on the trainer is Ngaio Marsh.
And now ... to knit!
