It all started innocently enough. Yesterday, I pruned trees, weeded flowerbeds, and installed the ponds' pump. Here, we can see Lucky's doghouse in the far background. He was resting, but not asleep. As you can see, this isn't a good view of the pond system.
So, I slithered down here to take a shot looking up at the falls and streams. It's very nice, but...
Some people saw me. Who could resist a face like that?
But wait! Lucky thinks of something and runs away. Where did he go...?
Fry will notice, I'm still on the outside of the fence. Alas, so is Lucky. He has an escape hatch and goes freely to and fro.
Enjoy the freedom while you can, little man. I have a hammer and nails, and know how to use them. No fretting by Fry allowed. He and I played for 45 minutes, he's napping right now. Little booger doesn't want a toy if I don't want it. If I ignore him while he's running around with his toy, he'll come over and tease me with it. Since today is grocery day, he has a new toy. It squeeks, of course, since squeekies are his favorites.
Meanwhile, in the front yard, a few pictures were taken of things less playful.
Voila'! The quasi-tank made out of Berroco's Love It! Colors. The color is Monday Monday, the pattern is a tangent from the Winter 06/07 Vogue. The circles at the bottom lay flat, thanks to my stomach not being flat itself. Also, I think it makes me look slim, but that may be my own wishful thinking. It was a blast to make, plus, I love knitting up this yarn. Berroco has very few patterns in this yarn, which is a shame. It's lovely to use and wear.
Here's a better representation of the colors the photo above should have shown.
The Flower Basket Shawl in Lorna's Laces Child's Play is slowly growing. I've started a small bolero jacket in Rowan's Summer Tweed, as well. One is a focus project, the other is TV knitting. Even non-knitters can tell which is which.
This one is for Mom. See how small my wild four-o-clocks are? Bummer. Still, they are growing. I've yet to plant the camomile and friends, but that'll have to happen before our next rain. :)
