We woke up to 4″ of snow on our railing this morning. Considering how much the snow melted and compacted, we really got quite a bit more. Fortunately, it’s just melted on the roads. That’s one nice thing about spring snowstorms.
We bought a big bag of Ocean Spray grapefruit at Costco a few days ago. Just look at these guys! Each one weighs about 1.75 pounds, and is a full 5″ across when cut.
They’re also some of the juciest, sweetest grapefruits I’ve ever had. Maybe not quite as good as the ones I had freshly picked off the tree in Belize, but pretty darn close.
It makes for a great breakfast with the Grapefruit Green tea Margene gave me a sample of. I may have to go buy some – I think I’ve steeped the leaves to death over the last two days.
As for my Baby Cables sweater, the moral of the story is RTFP. Read The F’ing Pattern.
I finished the cable on one sleeve, and thought I just had to do a few rows of garter stitch. That’s when I looked at the pattern and realized I needed to change to garter stitch one cable twist before the end of the sleeve cable. That was 3″ back. Crappers! It took me 2 hours to rip and redo that part of it, but at least one sleeve is done.
That was the third time I had to rip a big chunk of the sleeve out. Between that and the 6″ of body I frogged, I’d be wearing the sweater today if I hadn’t been so stupid.
Oh well, my goal is to try to have it finished by the end of the month (tomorrow).
