Now, even though Sandy is still supposed to be hundreds of miles off the coast of my little island, you can still feel the effects here. The wind is INSANE and if I’m to get to the big island today to get the groceries I wasn’t able to get yesterday, then its going to be on foot, for there will be no possible way to bike in this. The surf is insanely rich and rough. The birds just float in the air without flapping their wings, just hovering over the splashing white caps. The masts on the sails buoy back and forth like the reeds in the marsh bending and swaying. I can walk the distance, no big deal, takes about 2 hours, but its possible!
So, that’s my plan, sell my bear and walk over to the big island over, finally get my split pea soup ingredients, then come back here, let the storm skirt us by, and spend the night doing some more knitting. Thanks to some great feeds on facebook last night, my friends have me craving a good dose of “Young Frankenstein.”
So, today’s bear is made of a forest green cashmere, wool, and silk blend from Jo Sharp. Measures about 10 inches tall and has a face that I thought at first looked a little too serious…..then I thought, no…..he looks determined. If you’d like to adopt him, click here.
I’m looking forward to being cuddled up with some soup and Mario when the storm hits later…..something about days like that are made for knitting. 🙂
