They are walking! So cute!!

The pups are walking around today and they also opened up their eyes the other day. Boys oh boys, they are cute!!

I have started my scarf for the scarf exchange. The one that I had originally wanted to do didnt' work out. I didnt' like the yarn...to itchy. So then I tried it in another yarn, and I just didn't like it either!! So now i'm trying an all together new pattern with different yarn. It seems to be coming along nicely. I have a hard time knitting for other people. I want the item to be perfect and I am never happy with what I make. Everyone tells me that it is great, nice, beautiful......i'm way to picky about my work! Ah well, i'm iffy about the current scarf...but I think it'll be ok. I hope. Cause i'm running out of options!! :)

Merry Christmas!



Just a quick post to wish everybody a happy Christmas!! My house is all ready for Santa to come. Cassidy is so into "HOHO" this year and I dont know how! I havent really told her about Santa very much..just that he brings special gifts to everybody on Christmas eve, we're going to leave him some cookies.....the usual. And she loves him. If she see's him on tv she goes all crazy. I love it though. It's so cute and innocent.....brings back the magic of it all. It's great. And this year we have 10 puppies to share it with too!! How great is that???

On the knitting front. Ok.......I started making a new pair of mitts for my sil. She was so upset about having her other ones taken that I couldnt' resist. And I received my yarn for the scarf exchange. I now need to know what pattern i'm going to use and which yarn i'm going to use. Decisions decisions!!! AAGG! I cant say to much about it here because I have no idea if the person I am making for reads my blog or not. If she does "HI!!!" heheee.
Ok, I hope you all have a happy and safe holidays and we will see you after Christmas!
Toodles!!

Puppies



Here they are. There's only 10 now. We had a little guy die last night. The rest seem to be doing great though. Doubled their size already. If you can make them out in the big clump you'll see how CUTE they are!!! I love it when they get their little tails wagging. It's the best!!! If anybody around my area is interested in them, send me an email and i'll give you the details. I cant tell how many choc's there are yet. They are all still so dark. And there are 6 girls and 4 boys.

I'm a grammy! (kinda)

My dog Jessie had her puppies last night! She has 11!!! HOLY MOMMA!!! She went into labour early early morning on Thursday (prob just after midnight) and she never had her first pup until 9pm last night. That's a long haul. Her last pup was born at 4:30am this morning. They seem to all be doing good. There was 1 stillborn, and it was so sad. We tried so hard to get it to come around. I was hoping that they would all be healthy too. But Jessie is taking good care of the one's she has. They are sooooooooooooo cute!! I'll post pics later!!

Something looks different....

Hey! Like the new blog?? I was soooo scared switching it over cause I was afraid of loosing everything in the side bar. I wish there were more pages to choose from too! Anyways, a new look for the upcoming new year.
So, I finished the second mitt to match the "my so called scarf" set. I should be finished the MIL's slippers tonight and started another pair tomorrow.
My bf's sister called me in tears the other night. She was at the Regent Mall having a coffee and got up to leave. Made it to the doors and realized that she left her mittens on the table. She ran back to the table and the mitts were gone. Now the reason why she was so upset was because these were the felted mittens I made her for Christmas last year. She wasnt' even away from the table for 2 minutes. I hope that the person who took them REALLY needed them. She stood there looking and trying to see if anybody around her table had them...but nobody handed them over. So, I told her that I would make her another pair after Christmas...NO PROB!! Except these one's will have a dummy string lol!
OH GUESS WHAT!!! I joined a scarf exchange! I'm so excited because it's my first exchange. My scarf is coming from Erin (HI Erin!) in Taiwan!!! How cool is that? I think I may join other exchanges down the road. Its a fun way to meet people and it's always funner making something for somebody else. I know this because I still haven't knit myself anything! HOLY! But....after Christmas I think I'm going to tackle the Klaralund. It's soooo pretty. I'll save up my pennies for the yarn. Anybody know where I can get that stuff from?
Ok, I'm off to knit. of course. hehee.

Just keep knitting, knitting, knitting!

Rememer "Finding Nemo" when Dory sang "just keep swimming, swimming, swimming"? Well I sing my own version of that song when I'm in hign knit mode. Hehee.
Well I just wanted to show a couple of FO. First is a hat and scarf set I did for a silent auction at the hospital where my sister works. They are trying to raise some money to help a co-worker of hers that is quiet sick with some sort of cancer. I hope it will make some little girl happy!


And next is a gift for one of my sisters. It's the "my so called scarf" and a pair of mitts to match. I like the look of the scarf, but man....make a mistake while your knitting it and your screwed!!!
This is my list to do before christmas:
- Slippers for MIL
- Slippers for step dad
- Cabled Scarf for SIL
- Washcloths (weekend knitting) x3
I know that there's other things, but they are out of my mind right now. Jessie is getting sooooo big and uncomfortable. She's only got 2 1/2 weeks left till the pups are due. I wonder if dogs can go early? hmmm...something to look into.
Bye for now!
