Took the dogs up to one of the ball fields across from Ma's the other day and today. It's totally enclosed, so they can't run away. They have a blast wearing themselves out. Jewel is still flaked out sleeping, and she's been home for two hours.

Pumba says, "At least when they're tired they leave me alone."

Got my winning yarn from Heddy. Wanna make these with it. Hop on over to Marti's, too. She's got a contest going on of guessing when her baby will be born and how much she'll weigh.
And it's about that time. It's nearly two months, and my slippers have war wounds. Think I'll make a trip to the local second hand store and see if I can pick up an old suede skirt or something to make some soles. This is crazy. Any made from Classic Wool last me two months. The longest I got was a pair made from Briggs & Little that took forever to felt, and they lasted four months. Found a hole in the left one just now in the back, and I'm sure that was made from Maggie May. She has a thing for these cuz of the Fizzy trim. (Ignore the dog hair, please.)

And I'd just LOVE to know what goes on in the house when I'm not around. Went to work on some afghan squares last night and found my needle looking like this. It was set aside in a bag by the fireplace hearth, nowhere near anyone's feet or where it could be sat on. It's a mystery to me. I bent it back into shape as close as I could get it.

So that's about it. I keep working on Hubs's socks off and on. They are my on-the-go project to take to work and curling and such. I've also started working on Ma's afghan again. Got five more squares done. I also started one of my baby sets.
Happy knitting!
PS I should say Happy Anniversary to Hubs. Nine years today. :)

Oh love the Gordon Lightfoot song...makes me think of growing mom loved him. This song gives me chills...he is so talented.

Happy Anniversary!

You could try needle felting the hole in your slipper. I read that on another blog I visit, which is Chicken Betty in my blogroll (I find that links never work in the comments). Might do for a temporary fix.
