Randomness - Again

Last Friday, my Interweave FINALLY showed up. This made me a rather happy bunny. I would have liked to have read it over lunch, but it poured down with rain all day, so I took the dogs for a walk instead of just out to the field. This edition is fabulous. There are several things I would like to do, but know I won’t have time for. I will put it aside for future reference though. I might get to them some day.

I finally finished my ankle socks, which I’m really pleased with. They are terribly comfortable as well as gorgeous and I can’t wait until it gets cold enough to wear them.

I also finished another of the Falling Water scarves only in light blue this time. It’s going to be a raffle prize for one of my Internet communities.

Finally, I started a drop stitch scarf for a special project, which has yet to be announced. It’s not the most pleasant thing to knit and I’m a little worried that it will still look wonky after blocking and that it won’t be long enough, by my friend Inkysticks assures me it will all turn out alright in the end, so I’m putting my faith in her superior knowledge.

After that, I have 27 different things to cast on. Fortunately I’m working against a deadline right now, so I can resist the temptation to start too many things at once.

Just because, I’m going to throw in a picture of the old man of the house. He really is getting rather grey in the nose. He’s also started on the senile “I want to spend 5 hours sniffing this one flower thankyouverymuch” thing, which is annoying when I have to get to work on time in the mornings. I wonder what I’m going to do with him when he gets really old. I might have to get 2 sets of roller skates, put his leash on, and pull him along while Biscuit and I walk. What a sight that will be.


  1. The real sight will be him trying to do his business while trying to balance on roller skates ! ;)

    Poor fella...you know T has it right, "stop and smell the flowers"

  2. Now I've got the funniest mental image of that old boy on roller skates wobbling down the street!

  3. You'll have to get a baby buggy and push him around like I see the old ladies do around here. One had her cat in it!

  4. The "old man of the house" is darling. Can you call such an enormous dog darling? I agree with you about the later IK. It's great, the perfect mix of articles about knitting-related subjects and patterns.
