A dog's life.

Sadie has it made. There are people who probably don't believe us when we talk about her having her own bed. Well, she does. Don't tell my mom that she puts her dog hiney on the quilt she made for me.

One sock down!

Yep.. I finished my first sock Monday evening. I rocked it completely. Now I just need to finish the other one. I've cast on for it, but knitting time has been scarce this week. We've got vacation coming up and I think I'll definately have time for some quality knitting.

My weekend

My weekend consisted of helping Jennifer pack up a U-Haul Saturday morning, then spending the rest of the weekend avoiding the oppressive heat. Avoiding the heat meant plenty of time to work on my first sock. I'm pretty impressed with my progress to date. And by to date, I mean 3 minutes ago. I have found that if you turn off the flash on a digital camera, you can snap just about anything in your cubicle. I also found that the tweedy fabric my cubicle walls are made out of are like a giant pin cushion.

So long, #9

I'll miss you, Steve.

Sock it to me

The sock knitting has begun! I've been working on ways to keep the bunnies out of my vegetable garden and this has eaten into my knitting time lately. Well, gardening in general. Its the time of year here in Middle TN where the weeds are trying to grow to beat the real plants. I've got Zinnias, Rudbekia, Southern Charm and Prunella in bloom. Not to mention 3 inch baby squash and itty-bitty green beans. Spring has sprung. Now I just need a rainy day so I can do those socks justice!
