That Didn't Last Long

Sometime soon I will take a break, really, but I can't resist the opportunity to do a post with actual knitting content. Before I get to that, however, in the life's-little-ironies department: I decided a couple of weeks ago what my Z would be and that I would post it on the last day of the year. Ever since we arrived at Ellen's I've been trying to get a picture of a sleeping dog to go with all the sleeping-cat pix I already had. I didn't think it would be hard, since there are three dogs and all of them like to curl up and snuggle, but every time I got the camera near them they would perk up and look at me alertly.

This was the scene that greeted me this morning. Apparently the dogs held New Year's Eve revels of their own while no humans were looking.

I finally finished Miro and gave it to my niece G, who seems quite taken with it, judging from the fact that she hasn't taken it off since I gave it to her six hours ago. (Technically G is Grant's niece, but I'm happy to claim as a relative anyone who accepts knitted gifts so graciously.)

And I've started a new scarf for Miss B. The pattern is my best approximation of one we saw in the LYS; it's not exactly right, but it's close.


  • I love the comatose canines. You shoot such wonderful photos!
    And yes, your husband's niece is your niece, too, just like your uncle's wife is your aunt.

    My verisfication word is crowsts. Is that what's left of the toast after the crows have eaten the middles?

  • My dogs do that, too, even though the camera is very quiet.

    My verification word is coienu, a new French knock-off of Koigu!

  • You have been busy! I know now it's been at least 12 days since I read any blogs! Happy New Year!! (like all the !'s??). Glad things are going (went?) well in Ohio. Have you tried a free virus thing called Malware Bytes? The IT guys at work put it on my machine to try to solve some problem (google toolbar uninstalled itself, after aabout 2.5 hours of hands-on help, we discovered that McAfee kept preventing me from re-installing). Malware bytes found a trojan that adaware missed. Catching up on this blog reading is exhausting me... so maybe I'll actually post later (I've been sick!).

  • Happy New Year, Lucia!

    A happy niece is a good niece (and yes, she IS your niece, or so I say)
