Rain, Knitting & Deer Sightings...

Happy hump Knitting Wednesday! Yes, knitting guild night is finally here. I missed it last week due to being sick, so I'm extra itchy to get there. Matt's band is back to practicing on Wednesday nights too, which makes going straight from work to AKG even easier... life is good! Well, except that its been raining since yesterday afternoon. This is what it looked like outside before I left for work this morning...

At least its not snow, right?!?! Teutul insisted on going outside for the uptenth time in the rain, then looked all pathetic waiting for Mommy to let him back in...

Lola is our fishy dog... I swear that on most rainy days, she'd just sit outside if we let her. Instead of just doing her business and coming right back in this morning, she had to go investigate the side of the house...

I think she's on a constant hunt for deer after she spotted 2 in the backyard on Saturday. We were wondering why she was all still and gawking towards the back... then realized these guys were visiting and happily munching away on tree limbs (excuse the not-so-great photos taken with the super zoom as to try not to disturb them)...

So, after feeling like a mac truck smashed in to the side of my head being sick, I finally got some knitting done over the weekend. I worked another 12 round increase repeat on my
Clapotis. I've still yet to drop a stitch, but have it with me as my project to work on tonight....

Cast on another pair of socks using the basic Peace Fleece sock pattern from Knitting For Peace and super soft Jaeger Roma...

Finished a coffee cup cozy to match my Fetching mitts...

I also finished knitting a secret test knit item, which I will finally be able to show you after the new Knitty comes out! A dear friend will have her pattern published in the Spring issue and I am having a conniption fit a bit of difficulty restraining myself from showing you the pictures... but I digress and tap my fingers on my desk wait for Knitty to get the damn Spring issue up!

Another secret to share... don't tell Zeus, but I'm planning to stop at Woof it Down tonight to pick up his birthday cake for Friday. He was too busy munching on a bone last night to pay attention when I said the C-A-K-E word...

He didn't even notice that Princess Sophie got all snuggled up in his blankie either...

I am wearing the lovely wrap Chan made for me today (Joanne made me promise to bring it tonight), but due to the rain, I still have no photos to show... sorry! I'm also wearing the awesome dog shawl pin that Jeanne sent me in my Knit 1, Tea 2 swap package. So with that, please paint a picture in your mind and enjoy the rest of your hump day!

Your dogs never fail to make me smile. Sissy has decided she doesn't like the rain after all.

When *DO* we get to drop stitches?!
