Baby opossums are tooooooo cute!
Yep... we have baby opossums. At least 2 of them.
I suspect there may be more.
We've seen opossums in the yard before. Last week, S noticed that an opossum had gone into our garage. He tried to block the entrance hole into the garage but we realized that we had just trapped the animal inside the garage and opened the hole back up.
Well now we know, she was a mama opossum and must have a nest in the garage somewhere. I've been reading a bit this morning and my guess is that these guys are actually a number of months old now since they aren't riding on mom's back anymore.
While I think they are just too cute for words, I don't think we want them to live in the garage. In the yard, yes; in the garage, not so much. I think we'll have to wait for them to leave at night and see if we can get them to move to another location.
I just wonder how many we actually have?!
On the knitting front, I finished up a repeat of the forest canopy shawl last night. Love the pattern. Don't think the worsted weight is going to work though... I can't say I'm suprised.
You can definitely see the shapes within the knitting (they look like leaves to me) but with this gauge I just can't get any separation (no holes). I've tried stretching quite a bit to no avail. I suppose I could try going up a few needle sizes. Alternatively I think I should just look for a DK weight yarn, as called for by the pattern. So for now, frogged. I'll have to think more about a pattern for this yarn.
I am looking forward to knitting up this shawl now... it's going to be a keeper.
