"How's That Olympic Knitting Coming Along.......only 7 more days to go?"
DH is very happy that he escaped doggie duty this weekend. However, given that things seem to be staying down in doggie land ;-), he is willing to let me out of my bat cave for a few hours tomorrow so that I can visit with friends at SPA. I am so looking forward to getting out of the house!
Added Sunday: Sorry guys.....I just couldn't get out to the SPA......I tried though, I really did. I hope to see some of you at NH Sheep and Wool and Fiber Frolic ;-))
If you ever get a chance to try Malabrigo yarn.....go for it! It is the softest (non angora) knitting experience I have had yet! Even though I did read that this yarn will pill some, I went ahead anyways with the sweater. I will wear it wisely.
I'm loving the size 9 knitting needles and the mindlessness of stockinette. Quick as a wink (for me that is), the back was finished and I am starting the front tonight. The front has a little pattern work, which will make it a bit more interesting......but then I will have to pay attention too. Sometimes mindless knitting is a good thing.....LOL
When puppies get ready to go to their new homes, they have been bomb-proofed here first. When you have 5 children and 2 grandchildren, puppies get handled a lot......but very carefully and under supervision.. This is the first time that I have let my 2yr old grandson visit with puppies and he was mesmerized by them. He thinks that the tri~color pups are baby cows. Of course he was closely supervised by Grammy and mother Bliss.
McKayla on the other hand is an old hand with babies. I have never seen a child be as gentle and as loving as she has been since she was barely old enough to know what a puppy is. She knows that she must ask first, be sitting down and be very gentle in handling the wee ones.
Being the princess that she is, she opted to climb in with the 3 little maidens. Here she is holding "Boo"
I have to admit that it is hard to get much fibery stuff done when there are puppies in the house. My time with them is always too short and I just love watching them grow. Look how much they have grown already!
