Dogs on Thursday, Knitting and Brrrr!

We have had an interesting week. We had some warm humid days, so Rosie’s skin is breaking out. It is a battle to keep it under control, keep her from being miserable. Lily and Molly don’t mind the weather changes and Molly prefers the cold.
It has been a pretty low key week for them. Not much going on in dogland.

Rosie says it is too cold out there, I'll be here when you get back.

Lily says this patio is a little chilly.

But, please send healing drool for Abby, my co-workers lab. Who had to have a mammary gland removed soon. It isn’t cancerous but they are abnormal cells so they want to prevent it from becoming worse, because she has a history of mass cells.

In knitting news, I frogged the second sock in my Noro socks, those are my January Sock-a-Long project, by the way. As previously mentioned despite my efforts to rewind the yarn to keep the stripes the same, the yarn was plotting against me. So when I started knitting from the top down the colors were reversed. So my options were to (1), try to rewind the yarn in such a way that it would make but that might involve having to cut the yarn and I didn’t want to do that. Option (2) was to frog it and do a toe up start, so that hopefully match to the best of my ability. I haven’t ever done a provisional cast one before and so this has been a learning experience for me. I am enjoying it though.

I haven’t worked on the shawl for a couple of days nor my February Jaywalkers. Is it possible to be this far behind so early in the year. But there is good news. LOST comes on tonight and that will give me a good hour of knitting pleasure. I might just have to put down the Noro sock for a minute and work on the Jaywalker.

It has been a busy week, despite having had a three day weekend. And now begins the dry spell of no more holidays until May. Ug. Having just started this job in December I do not have any leave time so I don’t be taking any days off either. So sad.

Well I mentioned our unusually warm weather which is taking a day off the high so far today at 11:30am is 29 F. Parts of the area just north of me only by a few miles had sleet and snow last night. We only got a little drizzle and that only lasted a few minutes.

Well I’m sorry the content is light today. It has been an uneventful week for better or for worse.

My Abby and Gus are sending well wishes Abby's way. We are also sending some drool for Rosie so that her skin clears up!
