What a week this has been! Busy, busy and then a little bit more busy. I kept taking pictures over the week to post about, but then life got a firm hold on me and alas no posting and sadly not enough comment responses either.......please know that each comment means so much to me, but sometimes life gets too blessed busy. Even now as I am trying to post, Maggie is outside barking at the ghosts, begging me to get up from my chair and let her in.....LOL
I finished my shetland shawl..........I am very happy with the end result. I used my merino/tencel sock yarn and was pleased with the weight on this shawl. I think if I were to do another one, I would add a few more pattern repeats to make the shawl bigger as the weight of the yarn is a bit more substantial than fingering weight yarn, but all in all, I was very happy with it.
(Doesn't the shawl look like a stingray on that shrub?.....heehee)
Thank you for all of your puppy name suggestions. Let me introduce you to Skyy. Given that she is a Cosmopolitan girl, I could not go with names such as Ritzy, Sassy or Tipsy as my daughter Ashley informed me that she was NOT a bar hag, but rather a soft and refined girl.......upscale as they would say.
I resorted to looking at the thesaurus and still nothing other than maybe Posh.......but still, that did not suit her........so a trip to the liquor store to look at Vodka names again and there it was starring me right in the face........Skyy. It suits her.
Other than the shawl, there has not been much knitting going on. I finished the book, The Lovely Bones. Many of you asked what I thought about the book and I will say that I was glad that I read it, but disappointed in the ending.
The beginning was a bit hard to read, but I could tell the author at that time was going somewhere with the difficult event, so I stuck with it. The middle of the book was fabulous, but towards the end, the author seemed to loose where she wanted to go with the book and the ending did not complete the middle. All in all a well written and thought provoking book, I just wish the end had not gone off on such a wild tangent.
Our babies are growing......
Their eyes are open and they are feathered......I hope I get the chance to witness their flight from the coop!
