Projects and Pooches

TGIF!  I'm happy to report that the heat and humidity has taken pity on us a break for today.  It's a beautiful 70-ish day out today, which means I plan to get in some good knitting time - after all, it is Fiber Arts Friday!  I even have some knitting content for you today...

While I certainly don't need to start any new projects (sure, my WIP bags just might be taking over the world at the moment), I cast on the Knit It Tonight Cowl earlier this week as part of my Cast On, Bind Off review (if you haven't read my review yet, click over - Storey is allowing me to give away a copy of this awesome book to one of you)!  It's a super simple, mindless, quick knit and if I like the results, I just might make a few of these for Christmas gifts this year.

Speaking of racing... the sunset over the track last night was absolutely stunning!

The Lapdogs are all waiting to enjoy some of today's pleasant weather, so it's time to get off the computer and outside!  Before that, they did want me to point out their delicious new finds in case you missed them: Lickety Stik and Greenies JointCare.  Sophie had to go visit the v-e-t again this week for an ear check up and was not at all happy... her reward was lots of Lickety licks!  (I just love her "are you kidding me?" look on the left below)

For those wondering, Baby Booth is still crashing at our house... and fitting in almost too well!

We have a break in the heat today too! I am going to take the boys for a nice car ride with the windows open! They have been dying to go for a ride!

What a wonderful post. HH loves that green yarn. It's sorta shiny.

Have a great weekend....

Hugs, Max, Bugsy, and Knuckles

Very cute baby hats! Don't you just love the little things you can crank out while on the go? (I don't need the book, so I'll save the chance for another knitter to win :-))

Good luck placing Booth. He's such a sweet little guy.

The purple/pink item on your round needles is the same color as our sunsets often are here! Very cool!

Have a great weekend.

The puppydog pictures overwhelmed me ... I can't remember if there was knitting or not!

I love the yarn you picked for the cowl. I hope that it is an easy fun knit for you.

Love those little hats you made too.

That's my favorite hat pattern! I love using up remainders of sock yarn to make them. It's always fun to see all your dogs. That little foster pup is super cute! Give them some hugs and sniffs from us here at Chez B.
