Back at it

Phew, I was wiped out with some kind of crud last week. Spent the better part of 5 days in bed trying to fight it off. Thankfully the Doc fixed me up and by Friday I was able to go back to work. Glad that's over.

After you check out the doggy pics at the bottom be sure to hop over to Wisdom Begins in Wonder to see all the creative peeps that gather there every Friday.  Thanks for stopping in. LittleDog loves comments about how awesome he is.

I did manage to finish a pair of socks the week before...
Opal sock yarn in Rain Forest.

I've made some significant progress on my Mara shawl...
also started a new sock and a Scrunchie Hat for my favorite restaurant owner.

We've done some puppy sitting lately and he gets cuter every time he comes here. Sam and LittleDog don't think so but what do they know anyway?
When Bear comes to visit LittleDog spends his time like this...
on the arm of my chair where the puppy can't reach him...counting the minutes til Bear's Momma comes to get him.

Another Snowy Day

Well, we waited forever for the snow to come and now it just keeps falling. Makes me ever so glad that I only live 3 miles from work and none of that 3 miles is on a highway. I can poke along at 25 mph and get to work in 10 minutes...no scary stuff.

The dogs have been plowing through the snow in the backyard with no problems. LittleDog seems to like the snow more than Sam does. I shovel a path around the yard for them but they always forge their own paths anyway.

Last weekend brought us a beautiful light, fluffy 12" of snow.


Let me in!
I suffered a sock tragedy a week ago...
wah, wah! First pair ever to wear through...have you ever darned a handknit sock? I'm going to have to do some research on this. I certainly won't be throwing them away.

I'm ready to pick up the thumb stitches on the mitt I've been working on. I really like how these look and they are not difficult.
Thanks for visiting. Be sure to check out the other fibery peeps at Wisdom Begins In Wonder. Have a Happy Fiber Arts Friday!

Happy Friday!

Greetings! Thank you for stopping here.  I don't have any fiber pics to share this week but I do have some doggie photos. Enjoy

Just about every night LittleDog back up to The Saint's chair and asks for some rubs.

Here's how it goes...

belly rubs
more belly rubs
then flip over and let's do the back for a bit
Then we had an adventure on Sunday...Bear (our new grand-dog) came for a visit for about an hour. Both Sam and LittleDog were scared of him! He chased Sam around the entire time and LittleDog hid in my chair. It was hilarious.  How could they be afraid of something so cute?
He only weighs 3.8 lbs, geesh.

Have a great weekend. Hopefully next Friday I'll find time to take some fiber pics. I have been knitting quite a bit but the weather has been so dreary that I haven't found a good time to get some photos.  Be sure to hop over to Wisdom Begins In Wonder. I know you'll find some fibery goodness over there.
