Running Late

I should have finished this little blanket on Saturday, but my injured finger slowed me down. The main problem was the yarn kept getting caught on the velcro fasteners of the splint. I'd have to put everything down and unsnag it, then start again. But it's done.

I'm going to make four more, then deliver them to C.A.R.E. It's a good way to use up little bits of yarn left over from other projects. I can never just throw them out, so there are all these tiny little balls of yarn waiting for the right use to come along.

We visited with some friends who used to live across the street from us. Morgan went along, as usual, and enjoyed visiting with their dog, Callie. The girls are both shy and at first just sat and watched each other, but then they shared some chew toys and seemed to hit it off.

I have received this award from Soulbrush. It says my blog is fun and refreshing, like a cool glass of lemonade. Thank you, Joss.

I'm looking into making a blog book. Have any of you done this? I thought it would be fun to have the books made up at the end of each year. Then it really would be like a journal. If anyone has done it and has suggestions, please e-mail me.

This is my 100th posting. When Nicki suggested I start blogging I resisted for a long time. I couldn't imagine that anyone would be interested in what I had to say. Actually, I still can't, but I am enjoying my blogging activity. I've met some amazingly talented and generous women and feel much less lonely. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read my silly posts and a special thanks to those who have left comments. You've been very supportive and I appreciate it greatly.

Blurb is a popular website that prints blogs to books but when I went to use it it was no longer supporting blogger-but you can check. I had to use Blog2Print which from what I gather is not as great a program but it got the job done. I can show you mine if you want-before I give them as gifts in a few weeks!

A blog book? Hmmm... That sounds interesting, especially since I don't journal anymore, and haven't done much with scrapbooking in the past year either.

The blanket is lovely. I still say you're a very fast knitter.

I love to watch dogs play together. My two are very wild and physical, so even once Gretchen has her 3rd round of puppy shots (today!), we'll still have to pick select audiences that can appreciate their vigor.

Yea to you on getting the blanket done. I picked up some old Caron hanging around and whipped out a small blanket for the doggies too. Thanks for the idea. g
