a tornado watch
We spent last night in amazement at the thunder and lightning from a massive storm. A tornado watch was issued by Environment Canada for our area - that's very unusual for us, our weather is generally pretty moderate. The wild weather gave us some insight into what it must be like to live in Tornado Alley. No thanks!
Power flicked on and off several times, but the constant lightning kept the living room well lit. Enough light to knit by! As it turns out one ball of yarn is sufficient for one sleeve, in fact, there's enough left from that one ball to lengthen them if I want. After the sleeves are done I'll have more than three balls left for the yoke of the cardigan - again, enough to lengthen if I wish. So that's the plan.
All of a sudden this cardigan is flying off the needles, so I'm going with that momentum. Looks like this is one WIP that I can finish up in the next few days.
