April Showers

We had a doozy of a thunderstorm this morning. I slept in a bit, and was trying to convince myself to get up and get moving. I thought I'd just finish the current chapter of my book first. I barely got through a paragraph, when it got too dark to see the words on the page! Lots of close thunder and lightning. Poor kitties. I was feeding them their morning canned food, and Rollie, who is afraid of storms, had to wolf his down and then quick go hide under the blankets! We had a brief power zap, and quite a bit of pea-sized hail. Hello spring!

Which brings me to a recent finished project - the April Showers cowl. I named it that because the colors of this Malabrigo yarn remind me of the puddles you see after an April shower - all the blues and grays, and light and shadows. 
The pattern can be found here, and I used up the whole skein of yarn, coming up just a bit short in the top shaping. The fit on me is more snug than loose, but I prefer that. It makes for a nice, soft neckwarmer.
The storms are over for now, but the forecast says they might return this afternoon. I suppose I should get outside while I can, and then get busy on the endless list of indoor projects. The sooner I finish, the sooner I can get back to my knitting!
