No vest photos yet, but I have a few others to share. One of the things I've noticed about Tuck when we're in the car is that he likes to go to sleep sitting up with his head propped on something. This morning, it was the armrest on the door.
But he didn't stay there for very long. After a bit, he turned around and lay his head down on his favorite resting spot.
Much cushier than that armrest. Still, he never manages to stay sitting up the entire time. Eventually, he drifts off to sleep and, well, drifts. Downward.
You would think he would be a bit uncomfortable with his legs turned towards the seat back and his neck craned up, but that's how he likes it and I'm not one to argue the point with him.
A Little Sewing and Hooking
I've had a little side project going the past few days. My friend PJ is living in Brooklyn at the moment and is woefully ill-equipped for the cold. Of course, I've got plenty of really thick wool & alpaca yarns, but PJ's a vegan, which pretty much ruled out all natural fiber options (Yes, plant fibers are vegan, but they are totally inappropriate and inadequate for warm winter clothing). No, the irony of using environmentally-unfriendly petrochemical products to keep someone warm who wants to save the animals is not lost on me. Sometimes, though, you just have to respect one another's decisions and get on with it.
Since he spends a good bit of time outside involved in animal rights protests or doing feral cat trap/neuter/release, I decided that something thick and bulky was in order, and I decided that machine sewing polar fleece would probably get finished faster. I also decided, thanks to John, that I could knock out a bulky crochet scarf fairly quickly with Lion Brand's Jiffy Thick & Quick. The end results aren't particularly pretty (Actually, they look like ass, as far as I'm concerned. Except for the scarf, which looks like clown barf), but they are very warm and functional. The mittens are a bit large, so I may see if I can find a pair of prefab gloves in ack that he can wear inside of them.
And yes, I've already warned him not to get close to any open flames.
And Just Because...
...I don't think we've seen enough of him. Here's a bit more Roy Zimmerman:
And this last one, especially for Franklin:
