So what the hell happened between the end of 2013 and now? Well, I finished my thesis, graduated, got a job, got another job, and finally brought my beloved pony up to Canada. She has adapted quite well to the cold by growing a shaggy yak-like coat; I, however, must resort to other options to keep from freezing when it dips to -20 C (which, to be honest, it hasn’t much, since… global warming?).
Anyway, my biggest project and proudest stash-busting event of 2015 was the knitting of this gorgeous sweater to ride in on cooler (not cold…) days. I used up about six skeins of Philosophers Wool that had been sitting in my stash for 10 years or so, and ended up with a warm, slightly itchy (that’s what turtlenecks are for), and cute sweater for riding. It’s perfect, except of course my partner wears it better. But here it is with me, and the pony:
I would have done close-ups, but I prefer the pony pics. Feels good to blog again!
