So much for time off...

So........where have I been and what have I been up to, you ask? Well, this week I'm on holidays, if you can call them that. Mr. D has gone to the Great White North, (man trip) and I'm home doing whatever a girl wants to. The only thing is I'm stuck with this.........my shadow.
Mr. Tibbs...who loves Lorna's Laces, and the camera.
And Duece couldn't let Mr. Tibbs have all the shots! Miss "P" came to keep Gramma company Saturday night, and we went to see Nanny and Papa and visit with the chickens, sheep and Elvis. This turned out to be a great way to wear out the dogs. I got this in the mail last week, Fleece Artist Nova sock yarn, perfect timing, with a whole week off work! You would think I could get something new going, but there are just too many other projects to finish first.
And in honor of Socktoberfest....I give you Monkey Socks, knit with Lorna's Laces. Lovely pattern, easy to remember.
And last but not least....
I fell into that old trap. You know the one, everyone at work knows you knit because that's all you talk about, right! They think you have extra knitted stuff just lying around the house, and ask if you could donate to the raffle for charity. Yeah, like I have extra stuff just lying around the house waiting for someone to give it to. So I started this lovely lacy scarf, with Kid Silkhaze, one ball.
I should have it blocking tonight, that's if the dog lets me knit!!!!!

So, I'm off to do some laundry, run some errands, grab a large Timmy, and sit on my "@$$" the rest of the afternoon and knit. And I might just order in for dinner.
Lady says " I like it when Daddy goes away, I have Mommy all to myself!"

"All I got to do is bark, and bark, and bark, and she'll get up and throw the ball for me."

Great knitting. I love the lace scarf. See, it's nice when you get a little bit of freedom every once in a while and when the man comes home you appriciate him again. But I tell you 15 months is a loooong time for me.

What a gorgeous scarf! It sounds like you had a good time with P and Nanny and Papa. I can't believe how tall P is getting. She sprouted!

Don't you have one more cat? Russel or Chuck or whatever his name is? LOL

Lady's soccer ball looks like Cybil's soccer ball only in July Cybil and Bessie (Mom's dog) popped it, so its flat now. Stupid dogs. ;)

Oh I hear you about that silliness around "if you are a knitter, you must have tons of stuff lying around that is made of really expensive stuff that you want to give away". That one is right up there with"you knit all the time-I know you want to knit something for me and not charge me very much"
However, the scarf is lovely!!!!!!!!!!!
