Well, took a few days off work and am babysitting Berkeley. How cute is he? Bodhi and Berkeley are having so much fun being youngsters together. The rest of the posse is napping -- exhausted from witnessing the puppy antics.
Knitting-wise I've been working on a couple of basic shawls and 2 pair of toe-up socks. So far I have been able to resist the urge to cast on a sweater, but honestly, I'm not sure how much longer I can resist. A warm, comfy cardigan to get me through the winter/spring transition -- yum!
Tomorrow is my last day at the yarn shop. I am sad and excited -- I'll miss the folks and being surrounded by all that yarny goodness, but I am thrilled that I can have lazy weekends, gardening, hanging with the dogs, knitting, visiting the farmers' markets this year. So many things I missed since I was working so much. Yes, I did learn that time to relax is very, very important. To make up for the lost cash flow, I have cancelled my Netflix account and am making myself knit from my stash. No new yarn acquisitions until the Great Lakes Fiber Festival this Spring. I should be able to do it if I am very stern with myself.
Well, the pups need a romp outside and I need to go see Mom for a visit. Happy Friday all.
