Ho Hum

Not a lot going on knitting-wise in my corner of the world. I have been working on the Tivoli t-shirt and have had several debates with myself about what I should be doing with it...what kind of cast-on for the armholes, if I should try long sleeves, whether I should shorten up the torso. In the end I have not made any changes but my mind has certainly attempted different things. I decided not to do long sleeves after I found the Ballet Pullover pattern in the Interweave Knits Summer '04 issue. As far shortening the torso goes...well, this will just be longer t-shirt on me. I didn't think about shortening it until I reached the waist decreases and the thought of frogging doesn't appeal to me right now. We'll see. I'll try it on tonight.

Not sure exactly what's going on with the blogging thing. I think I'm in a funk. I haven't been keeping up to date with everyone's blogs. I want to, but I don't have as much "down time" at work as before. Which is the way it should be, right? Problem is, I don't have that much time after work either. I've been shopping.

Today's picture is a random selection from my album. This is Sally. We adopted her my senior year in college (undergrad) back in 1989. She died in March 2003. Sally was part Lab, part some-kind-of-snow-dog. She was very loyal to us, loved bounding around the backyard after a snowfall, kept my mother company on her walks and defended our house admirably with her intimidating, deep bark. Sally also farted like nobody's business. She would sit in the family room while we were watching TV and let one fly. Then look around to see if anyone noticed.

Until the next day in the life....

Lynette, I know how you feel. I was in a funk this weekend, too. Way too much stress at work, and I miss my dog, Crystal. She was not a farter but she always wanted to put her right foot on you. No matter how much we told her "NO" she did it anyway. Just her way of connecting, I guess.

Love the little info about your dog ... she was beautiful.
We all have ups and downs ... my husband is particularly vulnerable during the dark cold winter months (which are approaching, BTW). Wish you get out of this depressing mood soon. Take care.

You'll get back into the swing of things in the next week or so - it seems like you've been really busy. Your dog was very cute - aren't their personalities so great!
