As such, I'm *still* puttering along on Narragansett. I realized, when I started sleeve 2, that I had done some seriously wonky decreases on sleeve 1 (See distraction and stress, above). Now I'm having to work hard to match the wonkiness on sleeve 2.
No small feat, but it's coming along. At this rate, I'll be finished just in time to wear it for the Fall.
Since I have nothing of interest to share knittingwise, I'll attempt to distract you with pretty pictures. It turns out that there's a place in northeastern Colorado called the Wild Animal Sanctuary. They take in and care for loads of exotic animals who've been abused and mistreated in some way or another, fix them up and give them cushy lives. It is, all in all, a totally awesome place.
And they let you come in and wander around on walkways that wind over the animal enclosures. How cool is that?
So on Saturday, we took our stress-addled selves out to the boonies for an afternoon of predators on parade.
They have loads of lions (who do lots of yawning on Saturday afternoons)...
And bears. Oh my! (Sorry, couldn't resist)
There's even a camel who hangs out with a couple of horses in a pasture.
And several packs of wolves...
But seriously, the grizzly bears had the most personality. It was so much fun to watch them play and tussle and blow bubbles in their pool...
... without a care in the world. There's a lesson for me in there somewhere.
Meanwhile, I'm sure some actual knitting has taken place this week over at WIPW. Go see for yourselves. For my part, I'll try hard to have something more interesting to show you all next week.
