In the immortal words of Yogi Berra, “It’s deja vu all over again.” Once again I find myself working an endless border around a shawl. This time it’s the Pacific Northwest Shawl. Of course, it hasn’t taken me nearly as long as the last one. I think I started this one only about a month or two ago – it’s really knit up fast. But I am really tired of the border and so have put it away for awhile. But I did finish another Baby Surprise sweater. The fun part of this design is that when you finish knitting you have this:
And then you do a little folding and you have this:
What a surprise! Hester, however, was thoroughly bored with the whole thing:
After all, no doggie treats were involved. She and Kirby are getting along much better. He seems to have accepted the fact that she is not going away and is practicing tolerance (most of the time). Several times he has completely forgotten himself and started to play with her, but he quickly comes to his senses and begins to ignore her again. Hester has become so comfortable with her new home that she has even started to get into a little trouble. Although well behaved the first week or so, she has proceeded to completely demolish the wicker basket she was sleeping in and started chewing on anything else she can find at night. Today we bought her a crate and she is quite happy with it. She hopped right in and went right to sleep. So no chewing for her tonight.
A Happy Easter to everyone – we’re having a family get together with younger son and my sister. Wish you were here Ben and Abby! Less than a month to go before the baby – we are all getting very excitied!!
