Sunday Slog

Ye gads, it's like knitting through molasses! I've got six more rounds to go on my Frost Flowers and Leaves Shawl. I wanted to get it done before the end of vacation, but I don't know if I can make it. We have to clean the house tomorrow, because we sure as heck didn't during our vacation! Cross your fingers for me people, and pray for my sanity. These last rounds are the most boring in the entire thing, and it doesn't help much to know that my reward for slogging through them is endless rows of edging.

You know what else? The Regia sock is too small. I should have known better and I can only assume that the pressure of a family road trip got to me. They don't even fit my skinny boy. But I haven't taken the time to rip it because I'm dedicated to that darned shawl.

I had to put Dexter's ball in time out, because he wants to play constantly. Only now he's another kind of distraction.


Can't you just see the gears turning? I swear, that dog thinks that he can move that ball with the force of his mind.

  2. Too bad about the sock, especially since you took so much care in fitting the colors on the heel. Well, there is always another ball of yarn, if you don't want to rip this one right away. And think about your shawl being blocked. That should give you a lift, I hope.

  3. I had to de-lurk to let you know that I've been enjoying the posts about Dexter. He has such a fabulous expressive face. Steel your resolve and finish that shawl. I can't wait to see it.

  6. That photo is hilarious! It's like he wishes he had one of those lizard tongues that dart out and grab their prey - LOL!

    Sorry about the sock. I've had to rip one or two recently as well. It's like I forgot how to count or something. ;-)

  8. Dexter has sooooo much personality. I love that picture! It reminds me of my brother when he was young. His tongue was always stuck out the side of his mouth when he was concentrating hard lol.

  11. That picture of Dexter is AWESOME! I had to show the husband. I'm thinking of putting it as my backdrop on my desktop, but he isn't really my dog.... hehe.
