I love falling back!

This weekend is my favorite weekend of the year. I love that extra hour of time. I love staying up kinda late last night (well, for us) and then waking up this morning with an entire day ahead of us (because honestly, if we sleep in past 8am it seems that the whole day is just off). And it is a beautiful, sunny day so we're going to take the beasts for a long walk and then take a last ride in the Miata (we think we're going to sell it, as it makes no sense for the 20 year old car to be the only garaged car in our family).

The wrap is about a third done. Zippiknits asked earlier how it was done--well, it is just two colors of and grey. You can see the grey stripes, and the thin blue stripes, and then alternative sections are knit holding both yarns together. The secret is on the blue stripes that for some of the sttiches, the yarn is wrapped multiple times around the needles going one way and then dropped on the next row. Those multi wrapped stitches are then slipped through the combined and the grey rows, resulting in the vertical blue stripes. Pretty nifty!

Not a fast knit, obviously, but I think it is very cool.

It is very cool.

And I'm with you on the time change day. It's right up there with Christmas Eve.
