I was looking forward to an evening of Dorian cuddles and knitting......and I FORGOT MY KNITTING AT WORK!!!!! This is the first time I have ever done this. I am so distraught. Hours ahead of me before bed. So, shall I cast on a new project or spin? Or a nice hot soak in the tub? Or painting? Or continue to sit on blogger reading about all the things other people are getting done?
I seem to have this trend of shutting down and doing nothing when Tom goes away. I did do the dishes at least!

I took this picture this morning. His favorite thing is to go up that stairs and then play silly buggers at the top....bark at us to come and get him, and then run away when we do. He still can't get down the stairs and he is getting quite heavy, over 30 pounds now. This game is getting a little tiresome...
Progress on the house has slowed a little, I got one coat done on one wall in the kitchen. For those of you who have seen the "present" on the wall. It has come down and FINALLY been painted over! I'm doing the vanilla icecream on the kitchen walls and not to sure about it. We'll have to see how it looks once we start staining the cupboards.
I started a pair of socks for Tom using leftover yarn, but I think they may just be house socks...the gauge turned out huge!!!
I better sign off and get boiling some liver...class starts in a couple of hours! Yum!

Now, for the first time in my knitting career, I have nothing on any needles. I feel a little lost. I have had an exciting request for a Cowichan sweater, which has come at a great time, because I have been wanted to dive into a bigger project then a hat or socks. Although I do want more socks too. They are so heavenly. So any tips or patterns on cowichan sweaters out there? It seems to be tricky just to find a pattern! Oh well, there's nothing like a good knitting challenge!
