Camera Mishap

Agh! I can't find my camera. I finished my Olympic vest on Thursday, cast on for Kim's, but there's no way I am going to get it done. I had a store sample to knit with a deadline of this weekend as well, so that got in my way of knitting as well as a puppy that needed me too. :)

I did finish some other things before the Olympics started and got pictures of them last week before losing the camera.

This is the Pfeiffer Falls Hooded Scarf from IK Fall 2008. Yarn is ShibuiKnits in MerinoAlpaca. It is really nice to knit with. The scarf has pockets too. :)

This is the store sample that I knit. Harmonia's Ring Cowl by Sivia Harding. Yarn is Miss Babs Yowza Whatta Skein. It was a fun knit and one I would make again. Of course I had to include some Lily pictures here too. She is such a fun pup. She's been meeting lots of new dogs this weekend, good for her since she has a fear of big dogs.

Knitting Olympics

I have committed myself to the Yarn Harlot's Knitting Olympics this year. I LOVE the Knitty Surprise that came out yesterday. Roobois. I have yarn for one for myself and one for Kim. I need to wind it so I can start tonight or at least do a swatch. I also have a sample knit for Woolgirl that I need to finish by February 28. It's not a hard knit, but the beginning was time consuming. It's a Harmonia's Ring Cowl, and the cast on is a Moebius Cast On. I've never done a Moebius before though I think it is really cool.

I've finished two things. The Central Park Hoody that I finished in September now has buttons and crochet loops! No pictures of it yet. I also finished a Hooded Scarf for Kim. I really need to take a bunch of photos of different projects to update my Ravelry page.

Lily is growing every day. She is now up to 8 pounds. She has had both the Parvo shot and the Distemper shot and her titer came back showing she is now immune. We start puppy school on the 22nd of this month. All four of us will be going so we can all learn the same things.

This was two weeks ago. She loves the PB in the Kong. It's a special treat for once in a while.

I asked my dad if he had any pictures on his computer of our dog Queenie. My dad and brother got her from the pound the Christmas that I was 13. I took a trip with my cousins that Christmas, and Mike got the dog for Christmas. She was the best dog ever. The vet thought she was purebred Australian Shepherd, but there were no papers for her. I took this picture of her on a trip to Yosemite National Park. I think it was the summer after I graduated from high school.
