Wow, I dont really know where to begin! Its been nearly 5 months since updating here last. Theres so much that has happened and at the same time so little has happened!
I finished the scarfs and the pair of socks (that I forgot to photograph!) for christmas. Everyone loved their gifts. Always makes me happy when they do! Ive finished the body of the cardi and then Ive started to sleeves I just havent finished. I am nearly finished crocheting a baby blanket for OH sister who is due shortly. So really I need to get a movin and finish that!! Heres a photo of the baby blanket:
Its much bigger now and Im nearly done but trying to decided if I should go buy one more ball of cotton yarn so I can make it a bit longer. When I work on it it goes rather quickly but I dont always keep it at hand.
At the end of October (which this is the main reason Ive been so quiet!) we picked up a puppy:
Hes kept us VERY busy! And hes the main reason my knitting has suffered and Ive been so quiet on here. NO I AM NOT COMPLAINING!!! I love our little boy very much!
Come on, who couldnt resist and love a face like that? :) We are very lucky becuases he is a VERY good puppy! Doesnt chew the house up, he is house trained, can walk nicely on a lead, sits, stays, lays down, gives you his paw, high five, speaks, and can be trusted off lead as long as other dogs arent around. Hes really good and just wants to play with other dogs but he forgets hes a puppy and not all dogs want to play with him, not to mention he forgets his manners and completely ignores us calling him back! I know he just wants to play! Hes nice to the mail man in fact when we see him walking he wants to always go over and say hello! He understands Daddys home and gets VERY excited to go greet him at the door. Hes a good puppy and normally is a pretty quiet dog. Still remember the first time he barked, he scared us! Thought something was wrong! Since its been warming up Ive been going out running and he comes along with me. Then we get these nice peaceful times where hes not trying to constantly get us to play, and even that we dont mind.
Thats his favorite toy. Hes had it since we first got him. When you think hes forgotten about it he pulls it out and wont leave it alone for days.
So thats what Ive been doing lately. I will try to update more often but sometimes its finding the time to sit down and update. Will take proper photos of the baby blanket before I send it to the Mum as well. And will TRY to finish my cardi even if its coming up to summer and I wont be able to wear it I want it sorted for next winter! Thinking ahead since I planed to have it for this winter but failed miserably! Ive not given up on knitting its just taken a back seat. Same as Ive not given up on running!
Right need to go feed our little monster! Hope to see you all back soon with another update!
