Knitting keeps me sane…

And lately I’m going a bit crazy.

To make a very long story short, we adopted a 10 year old beagle mix sight unseen just before he was to be put down at the pound. Turns out he’s a puppy in old man clothing and is requiring a lot of medical attention.

He’s a cutie, but it’s been a lot of work and stress. If you’re feeling extra generous today you can help donate to a portion of his care here.

This has all been extra stressful because I haven’t been able to knit much if at all. Knitting is usually how I diffuse stress in my life, and it’s so frustrating that my wrist hurts to much to do it. I’m in the process of trying a few home remedies for it, and so far so good, but it’s slow going.

I did manage to add the second color to my Summer Scarf though. Since it’s been taking so long I feel like I keep missing opportunities to wear it, but I guess it’s more wearable than some of the woollies I have.

What are you knitting that helps you de stress?

The Blankie is Nearly Complete!

I have finally bound off on the baby blanket!  It’s hanging out in the sink getting a good wash before I lay it out and
(once it’s dry) weave in all the ends.

Other than that it’s been pretty quiet around here lately.  I caught a cold somewhere and decided to bring it home and share it with my lovely husband (oops!).  Now I’m just hoping that we can kick this thing in the butt before I go into labor.  To that effect, we’ve all been getting as much rest as possible the last few days.

Linus swears this is comfy

Ivy thinks the new rocking chair is just for her

Hank has a cushy retirement

Leah was a little miffed that I disturbed her nap

The hubby + beagle combo, always irresistible

Pictures of an actually finished blanket, and hopefully a free pattern for it should be up in the next day or two… you know… if baby doesn’t decided to interrupt things 😉
