I'm Ready for My Close Up - Not

I was struggling for content this week, things here have been shall we say less than exciting. I did finish a pair of socks. I now have three pair wrapped and ready to ship off to a dear friend and her family. I haven't made any progress, absolutely none on the barn jacket and the guilt is nearly overwhelming. I do have a second pair of socks on the needles for hubby.
We have gone about four days now without rain, so the lake that is my backyard is starting to recede. The number of muddy paw prints in the house is unbelievable. I put throw rugs and runners at the doors, wipe feet and paws and still tracks are all over the house looking like a stampede of wild hounds has barreled through here, actually that isn't too far from the truth.

The sun is shining but it is still chilly a mere 47 degrees. Molly is the only one who is willing to spend any time outside. But, even now she is all tuckered out and ready for a nap.

Lily who has become quite lazy this week, is also ready for a nap, but not because she has been outside patrolling the yard, searching for squirrels with her sister, but because she she is well, lazy.

Rosie is also napping, but that is just what bulldogs do, they eat and they sleep. She is a master of both.

With all of this peace and quiet around the house, I plan to pull out the very neglected and patient barn jacket and finish up the left front panel and one sleeve. Then it will be ready for seaming and then adding the button band and collar.

But then the question is what's next?

A minor symbol of the stash the real thing is tucked away in it's own room. I have a list of items I want to knit for Christmas next year and if this barn jacket is any indication of the time it is going to take, then I'm already behind schedule. So again the question what next. I'll let you know what I decide.

Enjoy the start of spring and the rest of the weekend!
