A Sleeve!

I've finished the first sleeve of my White Tea cardi! I'm now working on the second one, but the second one always seems to go faster (at least to me) because I know how many rounds I'll be working. I know what rounds get decreases, I know when to start the decreases and I know when to start the sleeve edging. On the first sleeve I'm constantly stopping and measuring to figure out where all this happens. Of course first, I have to find the tape measure, which I have to carefully hide after each use so it doesn't get swiped by certain people with soft, silky ears. The second sleeve is smooth sailing.

Speaking of smooth sailing, when I saw the sky this morning, I was glad I wasn't a sailor - it was really RED! We all woke up last night and went outside to see the Lunar Eclipse. There were a few clouds over the moon when we first got outside, but they blew out of the way and we got to see it. I don't remember if I've ever seen a Lunar Eclipse before but it was pretty interesting. This morning when Logan and I went outside first thing, the moon was hanging full and bright in the sky as if to say, "I'm back!" Then we turned towards the sunrise and saw all the red in the sky. It was a beautiful sunrise, but I always think of the old seafaring saying* when I see a red sunrise.

*Red sky at night, sailors delight. Red sky at morning, sailors take warning. Here's an article from the Library of Congress about the relationship between the color of the sky and the weather

The lunar eclipse last night was a bit of a special one since it occurred on the Winter Solstice. The last time we had an lunar eclipse on the Winter Solstice was 372 years ago! So it will probably be a very long time before it happens again, lol! It was gorgeous though, wasn't it? I let the kids stay up late to see it.
