Something to think about

No knitting pictures today because although I have been knitting they are all the same things and look about the same point in taking pictures.

But I have been thinking while I have been knitting. I have been thinking about my Christmas knitting and how I like to make people socks for Christmas. Then I thought about how much I like to wear handmade socks. I thought ... boy I knit a lot of socks. Then I looked in my drawer for a pair of handmade socks and.....hey...there are only a few pairs in here. I have knit a lot of socks but not a lot of PAIRS of socks.

This week is a very busy week. Something to do every evening after work this week and then I am going to focus my attention on my Christmas knitting. I'm still not sure how I am going to have time for any presents but...somehow I will figure something out.

Oscar on the other hand has one of his Christmas presents early. It is a reindeer with long legs and arms. He carries it around and shakes it like crazy. Then rests to watch the world go by.

Christmas WHAT?

I am back I hope. I'm still busy as can be but last night was the first night in a while that I have felt motivated to knit. Actually all I want to do right now is knit which is good because I still have samples to knit for Pick up Sticks and I haven't even started knitting for Christmas, and a still growing list of unfinished projects. That could be a problem! I think my knit for list will be greatly reduced this year.

Min and Pam of course (I just might not up it to sweaters this year)
Mom would love a pair of socks
Kathryn and Laura (scarves this year?)

I need to finish my report cards, go for the bridesmaid's first fitting Saturday, leave right from the fitting to dog training in Oakville (so Oscar gets to go to the fitting-lucky boy-and wait in the car).

Oh and my dress came in this week.Yippee!!

Anyway back to knitting, I'm still working on Heath, I stopped hating it again once I got past where I had to rip back. I'm also working on my Clapotis, I love dream in colour and I love this colour (Gothic Rose)

And Oscar wanted to help me take the pictures.

To leave you on a cute note. Here is my Oscar baby and my "tough-guy-he's-just-a-dog"fiance getting a "hug" (he calls it that not me)

My life revolves around my dog!

It seems like my puppy has taken over my life (I'm not to upset about that). I love to shop for him and buy him toys. I think he has more toys than some small children. I spend every Saturday with him. Going to Oakville and back for training. It is a long day and a lot of work but it is becoming a lot of fun.

I'm still knitting but it is little bits at a time so there isn't much progress to show.

If you are a dog lover you might want to check out this site for some fun.

Dogs with Blogs

I gave in thinking I could join but now apparently you need an invitation. But if you want to see more pics of my baby Oscar you can look here. You have to be a dog person I think to and even then you may think I'm a bit nutter.
