Well, I've been enjoying the wild thunderstorms this last weekend. The power went out on Saturday and we were left enjoying the light show, with no idea that a tornado set down about 10 miles away. I checked the back yard, and we have a small tree down, but it looks more like beaver damage rather than from the storm. What do you think?
I'm not sure what to do about a backyard beaver. Any ideas?

Been working along on the TDA over the weekend as well. Not too long to go before I start the ribbing for the bottom. Just great, a nice heavy aran in time for the lovely Houston summer. This time last year, my husband was complaining because he was in Peru all the time and it was cold, and he wanted a sweater. Now, he's no longer traveling, and the sweater is done. Talk about lame timing. Maybe we should plan a July ski trip to the Andes.

And more knitting notes, vaguely connected with the curly scarf.

I took daughter to the doctor last week for some post-op care for her sinus. I was working on the ruffle scarf, when the doctor and nurse came into the examining room. Turns out, they BOTH knit, and they have recently BOTH knit scarves for family memembers. The doctor was annoyed because she made a scarf for her mother in law. MIL later complained to her son about "only getting a scarf" for mothers day. That MIL will be getting gift cards in the future, I think. The nurse said that her sister was regularly offered money for her scarf when she wore it to church and always refused because it was hand made by her special sister.

Some people get it, and others don't.
May all your gift recipient's "get it".

Houston?! I am in Houston, I went to the Art Car Parade and enjoyed it immensely. The car cozy was neat, and they handed out patterns afterwards. I live far enough north, though to only have had rain this last weekend.

Oh lordy! I agree. May all our gift recipients "get it". That does look a LOT like beaver damage. Hmmm... send the pup after it...
