Ah, the agony of defeat. The Animator’s Wife did not finish nearly as much as she wanted to for Crochetville’s Crochet Games of Ancient Greece and Ravelry’s Ravelympics. She was so close with the Rugged Vest she had intended for The Animator, but she got overexcited, rushed it, and forgot to check her sizing as she went. The result was a vest that was about four inches too small in the chest.
And speaking of birthdays, my brother Osiris’s birthday was last week, and he got the most awesome present: two gerbils! They are absolutely not for eating, The Animator’s Wife said, but she said we could sit and watch them play to our heart’s content. I’m so excited! We haven’t had rodents in the house since the last pair of gerbils passed away last Christmas.
