January 2, 2013

I went back to work today.  The building was freezing.  I wore my gloves and hat all day.  I kept meaning to make myself some hot tea but I was too busy all day.

I'm planning on staying home on Friday and start on my felted wool jacket.  I am using the 4 wool military blankets that I bought at an estate sale.  I washed them in hot water and put them in a hot dryer.  I'm using Vogue 8430, a Marcie Tilton pattern.  It calls specifically for felted wool.  It looks really cute.  Now the weather just needs to stay cold for a while longer so I'll be able to wear it this season.
