Happy Birthday Lady Maggie!


Happy 4th Birthday lovely girl!  Thanks to BREW (as always) for bringing her to me.  Unlike most folks, I know from the lab paperwork that this is Maggie's actual, real birthday!


Cape Cod 2007-2 008

Maggie and Luther have a special bond.  We call them "the old married couple."  Here they are playing tug'o'war.

Maggie is an excellent snuggler.  She will even wrap herself up tight and snuggle herself!!


Maggie also loves her brothers, Finney and Gus (in the back)


Enjoy your special day baby girl!!!

Return of the YARN SLUT

Yes, the yarn slut has reared her "ugly" head.

In an apparent "F-You" to sewing, I've become obsessed with knitting again. The problem continues to be my inability to finish projects and my affinity for starting new ones.

Currently on needles:
"Seraphim" by Miriam Felton in Lorna's Laces Helen's Lace
"Lace Ribbon Scarf" by Koigu Mouri
"February Lady Sweater" in Berroco Ultra Merino
"Lacey Bell Pullover" in some Cherry Tree Hill yarn (I bought this at least 5 years ago)
"Entrelac Extravaganza Stole" in Kureyon
"Kimono Shawl" in Anne...

I need and intervention.

So, just like any other sane knitter, I bought more yarn...
(in my defense I hadn't bought yarn in a long time...)

I bought Berroco Ultra Alpaca for the "Foliage Shawl" also from Miriam Felton.
I bought some Manos silk blend for a scarf I found on ravelry.
I bought some O-Wool for ANOTHER scarf I found on ravelry.

And today, the piece d'resistance...I noticed my friends at Blue Moon are dying Pucks Mischief STR again...I've been following from a distance the Charlotte's Web KAL in STR. Like my friend Wendy, I wanted to make this shawl in one colorway of a varigated yarn. So I bought 3 skeins of STR lightweight in all time fave STR colorway

Now I just have to figure out that pattern.

And stitches is just two months away...
