A little marsh fun…

Since my knitting right now is still all works in progress that seem to have been in progress for…well…lets just round it off to a year haha!  I thought I would start my first post about my life on the west coast with something other than knitting!

With spring in the air and the daylight laster longer it was great to take the girls (my two dogs Parka and Juliet) for a fun evening stroll.  I just had to share these few photos since it seemed to work out perfectly as a little comic strip.  Juliet could clearly hear something in the bushes but wasn’t too sure what to do about it.

It worked out as a little mini episode of “Marsh Dogs”…maybe not as riveting as “Swamp People” but it wouldn’t need subtitle like “Swamp People” does!

Christmas Week Continues!

As I had stated before I think most of us can agree that this is pretty much Christmas week.  Between Christmas and New Years there seems to be ongoing festivities and general good food that continues.  But this is when people also start to wonder what (if any) new years resolutions you will be making.

Generally I don’t make resolutions.  Goals…sure!  But resolution that are made on New Years Eve always end up being let go so much sooner for some reason.  This year I have decided I want to make some knitting goals.  Having organized my stash I have realized there are quite a few projects that need attending to and it would be great to have some of these off the needles.

 

Time to contemplate what I want to finish and what I want to start.  One thing is for sure – I will be knitting the Sivia Harding Jo’s Pride Hooded Shawl for the Sivia Harding Knit Along in January.  Can’t wait!  Hope you can join us for that knit along!  6913518584_712c5bb9b0_z
