How weird is this? The hurricane passed us by and I have to admit, I am a little disappointed. It was on my mind all week. We don’t have television but we checked every updated weather report to follow it’s projected path. I read about cones of probablity and the 100-200-300 Mariner’s rule, which visually display the probability of a storm’s path. First it was predicted to be offshore, then about 35 miles away and in the end…I slept through it. I stayed awake until midnight but all the action took place while I was sleeping. Hurricanes are much more dramatic when they happen during daylight hours.
The day began with an amazing sunrise sky. In the afternoon, it got dark when the fog rolled in. Other than the red sky in the morning, I couldn’t see any signs that would have warned me that a storm was brewing and headed this way.
I finished up the three sweaters I have been working on for my friend’s daughters. Today is sunny and the winds are gusty so it is a perfect laundry day. I will wash and block them. I designed all three sweaters and at least I had fun working on them. The castle picture is from Barbara Walker and I used Ann Budd’s set in sleeve sweater. The aran sweater is a raglan cardigan knit in pieces with 3 stitch patterns. The last is a top down raglan with a slip stitch pattern from Barbara Walker. Now I am knitting a hat to keep me warm when we head to Seguin Island in Maine, next week for the month.
