Rainbows and Dead Squirrels

So I found the sleeve...well I didn't really find it, I went to the pub for Karaoke and the waitress gave it to me, I guess it had fallen out of my bag-it's a good thing they know me as "the lady that knits" or it could have been lost forever! I haven't returned to knitting the sweater yet because I am just finishing up my replacement-for-lost-sleeve knitting, a rainbow shawl that I will never wear. I don't wear rainbows. But I thought the pattern was cool and I thought it would look cool with the yarn! I'll knit it another time with a blood red Starry and then there might be a possibility that I would wear it.

It looks nifty, no?

The other day Patrick and I went for a walk and had a fabulous find.
A dead squirrel!! Unfortunately I did not have a plastic bag so I couldn't tak it home with me. I was very dissapointed. I was telling this to a couple people I know and they looked at me like I was crazy. Apparently "normal" people don't take dead things home with them. I have a fantastic animal bone collection that includes whale, seal, racoon, deer, coyote and other interesting animals- I really would have love to include a squirrel to my collection-just pop him in the back yard to be exposed to the elements for half a year or so and voila! Squirrel skeleton!

Patrick is growing at a frightening rate and is stretching his 0-3 months clothes to their limits. Since he is only 7 weeks old and was only 6 pounds 3 oz when he was born, this is rather alarming. I keep expecting to find him in the morning grown out of his skin like a snake or something.

My Aunt knit him a fantastic little snow suit and he look adorable in it! He gets lots of compliments when he wears it. It's very soft and as yet it's the only clothing he's actually professed an interest in, he likes the soft fuzzy wool against his skin!

Thanks for the great shot of sweet boy in bunting. If he's that big, he must be one of the family.
