KNITTING GAL

April 08, 2008

Back to blogging basics....plus Dogs on Thursday

I have been absent lately due to some health issues. I had a CT scan last week and am happy to say all is well. I just have not felt like writing but I have been knitting with a vengeance. I have finished two baby sweaters for a set of twins and a pair of socks for my daughter, plus I am 3/4 of the way through a second pair of socks for my husband!


Other exciting news is that I have won a contest! I won Cat Bordhi's new book and some lovely yarn from knitpicks. I am so excited to win a contest and really enjoy the blog. Give a look at catgirlknits to check it out and a big thank you to catgirl!


Plus my Dogs on Thursday swap box came! The theme was the mud season and boy did I get some great goodies. Oliver was so happy with his new friend and hubby loves the micro fiber towel. I love the teas and chocolate cookies. What a great swap partner. A big shout out thank you to soxnitter.blogspot.comf or all the goodies. Oliver hangs out with hubby at his office and always has a good time there. I brought his basket to him and he really was excited. Of course the frog looks nothing like this picture anymore. I will take an after picture to show you. Hoping everyone is well and I will post some knitting pics for next time.

Thanks Donna! We appreciate all the hugs from everyone!
Glad the scan went well for you!
Oliver sure looks like he's having a ball with his new buddy. Maybe thats what Lady needs ;)
Happy DoT to you all! Give Oliver a big hug from Lady & I.

Hi Donna,

Actually, the box was from me, Leslie, Soxnitter, but that's okay. Glad you got it and are enjoying the stuff.

Hi Donna,
I'm glad your CT turned out well. Oliver is a cutie. I just love that name.

Hi Donna--I'm so glad you happy with the win!! Mama's fall has really kept me running to the nursing home, it seems, all the time. If there's not an advocate there, well, I just think a person needs one, plus I love Mama so I want to see her and she wants to see me. If I don't get your box out tomorrow...I will try very hard to get it out the beginning of next week. I apologize for this being later than I meant!!

Very glad your CT was okay! Oliver and Gracie now both have froggy toys. Gracie's makes a ribbit sound which cracks me up to no end. We got it from the Princess in the DOT holiday ornament swap.

My swap box is going to be late. I hate it, but such is life. I revealed myself to my friend and downstream pal right off the bat anyway, so this has been a swap for the records...

Glad your CT was ok. Health issues are a royal pain in the rump! I thought about stopping in the FH lib. when we were back in NJ. But we were too busy doing maintance on the house, which is now a rental for 2 year while the tenent's kids go to RFH. Rats! Talking in person would have been fun!

Hi Donna, I haven't checked in for a while. So glad you're well and Oliver is adorable as usual. You're a winner even without a contest. Stay well.
