I visited Lopez Island and all I got was this lousy picture. 

Seriously, Lopez was so frigid and overcast I didn’t get any nice photos.  The clouds were dark and the rain made everything damp.  I just remember trying to stay warm and endlessly drying the camera. 

I’m so tired from shivering today!  Please excuse the rushed blog and the lack of essential details.  If you’re curious you can see a slideshow of the day’s trip over at Photobucket.  (Bonus points if you can spot a glass house hidden in the landscape.)  Otherwise, enjoy the plastic finger puppet picture from my dash.  I swear the blurry greenery is a genuine Lopez Island backdrop!

This short stack of crochet squares will be mailed to various ROAKs and comfortghan requests on Crochetville.  (Click on the picture mosaic in the previous post to see a slide show of them all.)  I had a bunch of random half skeins of worsted acrylic yarn from way back when I first started all this yarn business in high school.  Just sorting though it all was interesting.  There were skeins I had no memory of acquiring and tail ends of yarn from my very first projects.     

So with a dozen or so partial skeins in a big wicker basket I made simple crochet blocks.   It was really relaxing to grab a color and crochet away.  I could fasten off and choose a new color at any moment and the yarn I had selected for demolition disappeared fast.  They’re not exceptionally delicate or precisely planned but I thoroughly enjoyed the process.  Now I’m ready to start the New Year with a slightly leaner stash.  Could a LYS be in my future?

*That’s cool* a random fact

Wood frogs living in the Arctic Circle can live for two weeks completely frozen solid using the glucose in their body as antifreeze.
