Yeah. There's A Problem.
I seem to have a new addiction.
It wouldn't be quite so bad if I was using yarn strictly from my stash. But ... I went out and bought this Malabrigo on Friday specifically to knit a square with. Indeed. I bought 210 yards of yarn to make an 8" by 8" square. But look at the color, how sunny and happy it is! Doesn't it scream, "Make me into a charity square" to you? Yes! My thoughts exactly.
And when you've got odd balls of Koigu fingering weight what better use for them than a square? Two strands of sock yarn = worsted weight, how great is that? Because you know, I might have some sock yarn lying around. And this Koigu square is unbelievably squishy. In fact, while I was knitting this square I was having the most disturbing thoughts about knitting myself a coverlet for my bed. All in Koigu. Good thing I only have a twin bed.

Justin (left), Victor (right)
On the equine front, Victor has a new friend. His name is Justin and he's a 10 year old quarterhorse. A rather expensive quarterhorse. Justin can pretty much do it all when it comes to the rodeo / cowboy stuff. But he's not at all arrogant about it. In fact, he's an even sweeter horse than Victor. He also likes to give kisses, lots of them.
Justin has always been a pasture horse so he likes hangin' with his buddy Vic. And Victor likes other horses as much as he likes people so it's a good match. They literally follow each other around the pen and when one looks one way, the other looks that way. I'm really happy that Victor has such a good pal.
And finally we have Victor doing his "Nicole Ritchie" pose. This picture is a pretty good example of how far we still have to go on the weight gain. We've tweaked his diet yet again and I wormed him last week. His coat is getting some of it's shine back and I can see a tiny bit of hoof growth. It's just one day at a time.
