Smoke and Tigers

It is SO smokey here. Every morning we wake up to the smell of a campfire. I don’t know where the fire is, but it isn’t nearby. I can’t remember a year when it was like this every single day. And usually at this time of year, there are very few fires. Most days the smoke goes away by noon, but today it is sticking around.

On Friday, we did something fun. We went to the zoo. It was cool, but I did feel kind of bad for some of the animals. Some of them seemed rather unhappy. This was our favorite exhibit:

They are Siberian tigers (the biggest kind). When this big boy walked up and laid down, all the little kids backed away from the window. My daughter said he was scary.

I have been knitting away on my sleeves. I am done with the body of my Tour de France sweater for now. Heck, I even checked my gauge since I am using the dpns that didn’t get me the same gauge as the bamboo circs gave me. I want to thank everyone for their nice comments about having to rip my sweater. It can be so off putting to have to do that. At least if I have to rip the sleeve back, it won’t be ripping the entire sweater back. I am almost done with the first sleeve of the BSU Sweater. I had my husband try it on to make sure it was going to be long enough. He seemed pretty happy that he was going to be able to wear it for football season. I told him he might even get a hat to go with it if there was plenty of yarn left.

Siberian Tigers are beautiful aren't they. Good luck with the knitting.
