Cute Pet PicturesOk - mini-rant here - some time ago, Blogger "invited" (a.k.a. "forced") me to "upgrade" to Blogger Beta. No big deal - everything seemed to work just fine, and life went on. Until this weekend, when I finally got around to attempting to post via my normal photo-uploading. And discovered that my old method no longer works with Blogger Beta. And that I can upload photos through picassa, but only in batches of 4. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I just really hate it when something that works just fine is "improved" and no longer works properly. Rant Over.
I should have taken pictures of Gathering Intentions, which is a few seams away from a collar and a good blocking, but I didn't. So to distract, here are some moderately-yarn-related cute animal pictures...
Ok, this picture is actually knitting-related. I started a scarf for S out of the "Ireland Souvenir Yarn" he bought in Dingle... this scarf is a huge pain. I'm doing colorwork with 3 colors, and have to avoid floats so that the wrong side of the scarf won't look like ass. Oh, and I'm doing it horizontally across 240-something stitches. So each row takes 6.5 billion years, and I've given up on purling back across, and instead just cut the yarn at the end of each row and start back at the beginning. I'll worry about the ends later - luckily, there are only 13 rows of colorwork, so hopefully it won't be too big of a mess.
Anyway, I cast on at the Happy Place on Thursday (I took a 'mental health day') -
And later in the afternoon, Cricket decided to "help."
Apparently, a giant cake of yarn is REALLY comfy. She slept on it for hours.
And on Friday, after a really fun trip to the dentist where I once again realized that it's a bad idea to forget to schedule my 6-month appt. for, ummmm, almost 2 years... I came home to find that the animals had been busy in my absence.
I don't know anything about the yarn trail. I'm just sitting innocently in my sunny spot. It was the dog.
Actually, both Cricket and Abby have been playing with "their" yarn ball - Abby likes to cover it with slobber, bring it back to you, and wait for you to throw it. It was pretty funny when they would race each other to grab the yarn, and when Abby would win, Cricket would attack her tail as she ran back.
And speaking of Abby, this is the cutest picture ever - a few weeks ago, I was filling in at Knit Happens on a Friday. After work (when the store closed), we all went to dinner at Pat Troy's, but I left my bike locked in front of Knit Happens. So when we went to grab my bike after dinner? Abby would run straight to the door and wonder why we weren't opening it for her.
And for more Abby cuteness -
