One Sock, Waiting

Finished one quill lace sock, for me this time. On Your Toes Bamboo Sock Yarn , basically done the same way as the other ones. (They were won by a little girl in the Oldest One's class.)

Trying to get a closer look at the colors in the yarn. It's 4-ply, one is pale blue, one pale yellow, one pinkish, and one grey.

Pumba sitting in Jewel's kennel. One of these days she's going to come barrelling in behind him, and he'll wish he wasn't in there! Although out of the three cats, he's the one that is kinda socializing with her the best. He was laying on my lap last night and actually let her sniff around a little. (Though he could have been frozen with fear.) She licked one of his ears a bit, but then the teeth had to nibble a bit.

Jewel's microchip. That's one of the things she had done this morning. I'm waiting for a call from the vet saying how she's doing and what time I can bring her home tomorrow. She went in to be microchipped, spayed, and boostered this morning. (There was another dog there and a cat, both being neutered, I think. The dog looked like he was a whippet, and the cat was a sphinx! I got to pet him, poor thing was quite scared, so was the dog. The sphinx was so soft and wrinkly, he was totally adorable.) So the cats have a peaceful evening, and I should have some uninterrupted knitting time. Edit: I called to see how she is. They said she's awake, and they've been playing with her some. I can pick her up tomorrow any time after 8:30am.
Look how fat that needle is! No wonder they have to be asleep when the microchip is inserted.

Mental note for anyone out there with a five-year-old boy. Don't let his Dad let him watch The Waterboy unless you want to hear, "I'm Bobby Boucher!" Then he continues to run around headbutting and tackling everyone and everything in sight. (And he declares it's his favorite movie, and he needs it for Christmas. Yes, it's true.)

Soon off to take the Oldest One curling. There are tournaments every Saturday for five weeks in a row, so they are going to try to fit them in once in awhile after school. I'll be taking the sock with me.

Happy knitting!

The sock is pretty. I am making one for grandson Dave in blues and greys.
I will probably bring it to KN. I didn't realize the strands were all different colours. Duh.

Do they use little rocks or the "normal" rocks when they curl?
I like the socks.

They look like the normal rocks to me, but I could be wrong.

Glad to hear that your puppy is doing well. Will she be able to make it to puppy school on Thurs? Speaking of which, we should chat about carpooling. Will you be at KN?

Pretty socks ... I love the quill lace pattern. You will have to show me what I am doing wrong with it! LOL!

Are you coming to Knit Nite tomorrow nite? I hope everyone is ok with this -- but I made arrangements for us to be in the meeting room at Lanes from now on, whenever possible -- I don't think the book room will work out (no arms on the chairs, not able to get close to each other - and other people wander in and out (a bit annoying/distracting!!)

The owner said it was fine to do it, as long as noone else needs it that night for a meeting - if they do, we will get bumped to the book room.
We can discuss at the KN if people want
