I'm Back...

It's been a while...hate it when life gets in the way of my knitting.

I have been up to my ears in school stuff - teaching and my own work - as well as being *very* sick for a few days. I know I'm *very* sick when it's so bad that I can't knit. Because I can knit through a lot of things.

Anyway, I'm finally feeling better and am taking a little break from work. So here's some stuff that I found on my camera.

Beautiful sky picture taken by Boy #1:

Front and back of the Prudence vest:

You can't see it here, of course, but the back turned out a full 1" shorter than the front. So, R-I-P will be happening sometime soon. Fortunately, it should only involve a few rows. Other than that I think it will be a perfect fit! I'm excited about getting this project wrapped up, though by the time it's done it'll probably be too warm to wear it.

Did a bit on my parents' ripple last night. It's a great mindless thing to work on. I hate working with the Dale though. It's very splitty. My hook goes right through it. My best guess is that this is adding a good 20% onto my crochet time. Oh well, it really is a beautiful yarn, and it is SUPERWASH. Gotta love that in an afghan.

Below is a gratuitous chihuahua shot. The sweatshirt actually has a little pocket underneath, just like a people one.

Frisky actually has an online chihuahua love, and she's just as cute as a button. You know who you are, SofeeSu! Tee hee. So cute.

So, not sure what's next in knitting. I obviously have a few things to finish, but I am in need of a quick fix kind of project - small, colorful, spring-ish, (but not socks as I have too many in the queue already.) Any ideas?

Glad you're feeling better...

The doggie hoodie is a hoot! Glad that you are feeling better too.

I think you need to knit some lace...

Sofee sends kisses!!

Frisky looks very handsome in his hoodie!

Sofee updated her wardrobe at the local Petsmart this weekend. Coats and Sweaters 75% off - couldn't resist!!

Oh, forgot - Have you seen the glove KAL....

That would be a nice new project.... I am trying to decide on the colors I want to use. Not easy, especially for me - I am colorphobic!!
