I could have skipped yesterday. It promised to be a humdinger before I even got out of bed.

Yarn Rascal, bless his little soul, is nocturnal. So he’s a busy little guy during most of the night. Yesterday morning the first thing I saw when I woke was what looked like a giant hole gnawed in the bed sheet. On closer inspection I realized it was as it looked: a large, gnawed, hole. Yarn Rascal was in his usual daylight position, sound asleep under the covers near the bottom edge of the bed. The little sheet eater was exhausted.

Since Yarn Rascal hasn’t eaten a sheet in awhile, The Skipper and I think what happened was one of his bones got caught up in the sheet and he was gnawing the bone with the sheet in the way. A scenario in which he really isn’t to blame. To him he’s chewing on his bone as we’ve taught him to. The hole is about the size of Montana, and I am in search of some nice fabric to mend it.

With trepidation, I put my feet on the floor and started my day. Things continued to go down hill. Most of them little, but it ended up with me putting my sweater on backwards and walking around all day wondering why it was so tight around my neck.

In the meanwhile, I’ve been scouting some of the male knitwear fashions shown for 2015. I think the watch word is texture, texture, texture. Here is some of what I’ve seen that’s inspiring me.
