It has been a while…

Like a lot of people, I had a doozy  of a head cold for three weeks of the last several weeks.  I was curled up, medicated and knitting.  Of course, due to said medication, the knitting was slow and error ridden.  A lot of it ended up in the frog pond.

I did complete a new pair of socks for ME!  They are in a lovely merino/bamboo blend from KSD.  They feel wonderful on my feet!

I’m also working on a new project for Tesla in Celeste hand dyed by SpaceCadet.  The colorway is Iris with the purples, greens and that pop of yellow of traditional ‘flags’.

My photography does not do justice to the wonderful colors in this yarn.

Ike and Tina have been getting Lucy more active.  She must be feeling better because she is much more interested in them.  She even wags her tail when they lick her snout.

The pups are also showing some signs of maturing.  They have grown a lot, with Ike weighing in at over 22 lbs, and Tina at 17 lbs.  They are not so frantic about everything.

Tina is supposed to start ‘school’ next week and they will both learn some manners.  They won’t get to interact with Tesla until they can follow a few more simple commands.

Ike gets so worn out with his day of play that this is how he has been spending his evenings.
