Dexter gave me a rough day yesterday. It's a good thing I've had kids. I remember what it was like with them when they were little and we had a bad day. I know now, that these days pass. That bad days are part of the process.
Dexter is a well behaved dog in the house, with the kids and on the leash. He's just not well behaved around other dogs. And I, in my ignorance, exposed him to other dogs a bit more than he was able to tolerate.
As for knitting, I managed to start my last repeat of frost flowers pattern in my shawl. I've still got a couple more weeks to go on it I estimate. And here's the promised sock picture:
It's so bright, I think I'll call it my sunbeam sock. The yarn is Hill Country Yarns, Sweet Feet that I won in the Bitchin' Mittens contest last year. The pattern is from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks and it uses a variation of shetland lace to make those scallops. It's a funny pattern. You decrease for four rounds, increase a round, then do two rounds in reverse stockinette.
Have I mentioned we're on vacation? We're just staying home, playing with the dog, knitting and reading Harry Potter. I just finished it this morning. I think this book was the best one of all. I yelled out loud, cried and laughed, Now my husband is reading it. I'm looking forward to him finishing it so we can discuss it.
