New members of the herd

New baby donkey!

She doesn't have a name yet, but she is incredibly adorable.

Also, we have a sixth feline now.

He followed us home so we took him in and made up flyers to try and find some lost peoples for him, but nobody called. So we took him and had him checked out at the vet and had him nuetered. His name is now Tycho, he's about one year old and the only white one him is that one whisker.

Now if only the newest addition to the bicycle herd would get here!

Face Warmer

With all of this Winter Wonderland and arctic temperatures we've all been having, I needed to find a way to keep my face (mostly my nose) warm.

So I came up with this:

It's a variation on Calorimetry, with some more drastic short row shaping to make it fit over a face more so than on a head. I used a rather sproingy superwash merino wool of indeterminate origin. It also keeps my ears warm! I really only wear it at night, if it's in the low 20's (F) or below, since it does kind of make me look like a bank robber or a bike ninja. But hey, it does the job!

I think I'm on to something...

I think that I've found a perfect hook for guards with drilled fenders.

Even if they don't start out as hooks.

But look at how nice that comes together!
