I fully expected to finish this sweater. Well, maybe not finish but at least dazzle myself with how far I got.
This is it.
I am almost finished the back. I knit about fifty rows.
I couldn’t understand this. Why so few? It felt like I was knitting a lot. Except for the interruptions or the times when my fingers were too cold …..
I timed myself on a row. I thought it was taking me about 5 minutes per row. Man, oh man —- it took me 18 minutes!!
So those 50 rows represent 15 hours worth of work. Not to mention the tinking back I had to do and the fact that I didn’t knit at all on the last two days there.
Why didn’t I knit at all on the last two days?
mostly that and because I was stressing over this (click on right hand picture).
what does he have on? you ask
that’s a face mask – we put it on him to protect his stitches.
yes — the horse ripped open his face right below his eye and required stitches. Mr. Spencer is not the friendliest of neighbors and got into some kind of altercation with the horse in the next stall.
I am happy to tell you that it is healing beautifully.
I am also happy to tell you that emergency vets at fancy horse shows aren’t nearly as expensive as you might think.
***added later: as Kathleen has noticed, lots of my animals seem to have eye issues. I must be some kind of Medusa that they all seem to want to pluck their eyes out.
