Snips and butterflies and puppy dog tales......
Thursday again....let's start with puppy dog tales......Oliver has been his usual scampy self. He keeps coming into my craft room and stealing yarn. He has very discerning taste and goes right for the merinos and the mohair. I don't understand the attraction. He takes it and rolls on his back and holding it in his mouth he throws it up and down from his mouth to his paws. The result is a big tangled mess. I am going to leave the camera out so I can catch him in all his glory. This weekend I am going straight to the dollar store and buy more storage containers to put the yarn in. It looks good in baskets but it is too tempting for the poor pup. So for now I have a picture of the evil doer looking very innocent and longingly over the fence to freedom.
While I was in the yard I saw a beautiful Monarch butterfly having lunch in my garden. We see so few of the beauties here in my part of New Jersey that I couldn't resist. I just couldn't get him to open his wings no matter how much I coaxed him! Still a beauty though. That is the last of my Black Eyed Susan's and the still lovely Lantanias.
I Am afraid I have not been taking pictures of my knitting because I am in a knitting pickle. I have started too many projects and I don't know which one to work on. I keep starting things I want to make and not finishing them. I guess it is time to get tough with myself and put away all the projects but one and finish that one. Then move onto the next. I am also doing socks for a KAL and I have only done one sock and not even started the other! I must get back on track. Also a funny little problem keeps me from knitting more....WORK! I work and then think about knitting....I work some more and wish I were knitting...I bring my knitting but it is so busy all I am doing is carrying it back and forth.....I work with the public so I feel they would think it strange if I helped them and were knitting at the same time....sigh....:0( When I retire I think I'll try and get a job in a yarn shop. I love my job ( librarian) but knitting really has it's hooks (needles!) in me. Have a great weekend and I will be posting wonderful pictures of completed projects!
