My New "Dog"

Hello Knitting People.

I just had to laugh at the comment that stringplay left on my blog last time. She said "Boy, your dog looks different. Just kidding" and it took me the longest time to figure out what she meant. Well, all great things come to me at 3 o'clock in the morning and I actually woke up giggling at 3 o'clock one morning realizing she didn't mean the pug;
She meant the ram from Corinth;
I also received some beautiful yarn from Corinth and my Baby Girl actually watched it being carded and spun. Guess she was so interested, and commenting on her mother being addicted to knitting, they gave her some pieces. They're short pieces but all the same colors, so I might try making something with them, but right now I'm enjoying just looking.

She also brought me this black Angora which is super soft. The label is written in ?Hebrew? but it does say 602 yards in English. Enough to make a nice little shawlette or a scarf. She was in Europe for 3 months and also got to go to Paris for a weekend. I told her if she brought me a skein of yarn from each country she visits, I'd let her go. So far she's done very well. :o)

This is my first project for 2010 and my first finished project for 2010. I LOVE IT!

It's the 3 Way Wrap from Ingrid Nicholas on Ravelry. I used Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Chunky, size 10 1/2 needles and made it in about 2 weeks while on vacation. Great "talk while you knit" knitting.

You all know that I'm fighting the battle of the 30 pound bulge. Well, I read in a magazine that knitters use 100 calories an hour and a 5 hour knitting session is very good for you, so, to all you knitters out there that need to lose some weight - KNIT!

Happy Knitting!

It really cracks me up when pugs roll on their backs like that! I can never quite tell if Trump wants to play or if he's freaked out. :)

Sorry to disturb your slumbers. I didn't mean to be so vague. Maybe puzzling burns calories, too. Hope so for my sake because I sure do a lot of puzzling. I LOVE the 3 Way Wrap. I hadn't seen that one before and I know it must feel scrumptious in DB Cashmerino Chunky. And in your pink, too.
