So I'm working my way through the pattern which is fun but the yarn is absolutely annoying me. It is rough and dusty and full of knots and is interfering with my knitting bliss. But I have finished the back and half of the front and am too close to the finish line to give up so I keep going. I've learned not to knit it while wearing any dark clothing because it leaves a dusting of fiber bits in its wake -- you should see my laptop keyboard -- grrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
All I'm saying at this point is better soften up with blocking or I am going to be one pissed off knitter.
The worst part of this tale -- I have tons -- metric butt load tons of fabulous fiber I could have used for this project and yet, I did not. So there you have it. I have only myself to blame and I'm not even sure why I made this decision. Oh well. . . .
On the pug front -- the weather has been hot and sunny. Bodhi loves it, Myoki and Ho-Tei not so much and my beloved Poppy is not much of an outside girl. It is the Maltese in her -- she prefers pillows and air conditioning and tasty treats served on a beautiful platter. Total princess.
Well, off to work so I can afford those pillows and platters. Have a great Wednesday all!
