It's been too long

Wow, I've been a bad blogger!  Can't believe the last entry was March 23rd.  Got some knitting done and have another sock in progress.  This one is the Eyelet and Flame Chevron Socks pattern and it is just a joy to knit.  See.  I am using Misti Alpaca sock yarn that just came in at River Colors Studio and it is so soft I can't wait to wear these socks.  I used the Turkish Cast-on which I am totally in love with right now.

You know, I love Ravelry, but find I am more of a lurker than a participant.  Something about having to have pictures and ball band info makes me tired and lazy.  Probably for the best.  My stash might crash their servers, (ahem).  For the observant among you, yes, I have once again fallen off the yarn diet and dented my credit card.
In addition to the Misti Alpaca, while at River Colors I picked up some Silky Malabrigo in Turquoise and some lace weight Malabrigo.  Some women collect shoes, I collect yarn and pugs, both of which are more comfortable than most shoes and will definitely last a lot longer (I'm really rough on shoes). 

In the pugosphere, I have fallen in love with the artwork and items on Pugnotes.  Melissa and Emmitt not only have beautiful items but also a fun and fabulous blog.  Go check them out and say Hi and add to your dog art collection.  They are the best!

Winter is finally receding and the robins and crocuses are giving me hope that I can wash the salt off my car for the last time this winter.  Just to keep everyone's spirits up, here is a picture of my friend's garden from last summer.  The dahlias just blow me away!

And with that hint of spring, I'll close for now.

  1. Hi K!
    Oh you are so sweet! You absolutely just made my whole week! Thank you so much for the nice words and links. Your socks and yarn are wonderful! Do your puggies sit right on your yarn while you are knitting? My Emmitt, like us, also LOVES yarn! He must sit right on it whenever it is out.
    Funny Puggy!
