nutter in the snow

Not much knitting going on… working on the sleeve to DH’s sweater, which I ripped out once. So, it’s a week’s worth of 365 photos…

The days are getting longer, but the sun is still pretty low in the sky at noon,

Frozen pond at the arboretum, 1/7. The deer are brave enough to walk over it, but not me.

Had lunch in Waterville on Saturday (1/8) and this painting was hanging on the wall at the lunch spot. I think it’s some mill bridge.

I had to go to Yard Goods for some yarn (they’re having their 20% off everything in the store sale). Really, I needed yarn. Mostly insurance in case I run out for this sweater. Just 3 skeins of lopi, 2 for insurance and 1 because I brought the old label, but not the yarn, and the color didn’t look right. And plain red Cascade sock yarn for knee socks.

The sweater:

I ripped this 1/9, and re-did, not picking up extra stitches at the armpit, and decreasing MUCH more rapidly than the pattern says. It’s better, but I’m not sure I’m 100% pleased. We’ll see…

DH is on a mission to finish some small bits of the floor job (you know, the one from a couple years back?). This is a good thing, because previously lots of people tripped over this 2 inch rise.

Which brings us to today, and all this snow!
1_12_k9print
K-9 print outside the empty Stone Building at work. There were 2 K-9 units parked outside the Stone Building, and a big SUV. We wondered if they really had dogs, and were they inside… so I did some sleuthing and found this evidence!

About this point a Lewiston K-9 unit pulled up, and I was nosy. He told me they were doing training exercises. And no, he wouldn’t like to bring his dog out to meet us, since he wasn’t especially friendly. Which I would say applied to the handler probably more than his dog. Some people just have no sense of humor. But maybe it was because he was so young. And I seem like a nutter…

And then the Auburn K-9 unit pulled up…

    Actually, looking at the painting, I fairly certain it’s a view from Ft. Halifax across the river in Winslow. There’s a train trestle and bridge over the Sebasticook where it dumps into the Kennebec and a Cumby’s at the corner of 201 & 137. In fact, looking at the larger image, I’m sure of it, because the Golden Arches are there just past the Cumby’s. How’s that for local knowledge?
