10-10-10

You're not really surprised now, are you?  Like I would miss posting on such an auspicious date!

I don't have any knitting-related pictures to show you, but can assure you that I am moving right along on a few of my previously mentioned or alluded to projects.  I am also currently thinking that I should try knitting this for myself, as I think it is attractive, and something I would wear pretty regularly.  Having said that, I also think that I need to finish something else before even thinking about what yarn I would/could use.  But I'm enjoying having it in my brain in the meantime.

Three birthdays today!  My niece Lauren, who is getting married next month (family road trip!); Tim's brother Bob, who is LOTS older than both of us (but strangely has no grey hair ... that shows through the hair dye); and, one of my very best friends in the universe, Lisa!  Plus, yesterday, I met a very sweet Pembroke Corgi who was celebrating his 10th birthday today, which I think must make him an extremely special pup!

Even better, I have a day off tomorrow, so this is only the middle day of my weekend. 

At the moment, life is good.  I hope you can say the same.  :-)

"Puh-leeze!  Let's see that "special" Corgi do this!"

Oh, huge slam on Bob!

And, no Jetsam, no Corgi could do that.

I would like to knit that as well! I have even gone so far as to look for yarn substitutes and what I would to do modify it...extra buttons, as buttons only on the top tend to make me look pregnant (which is not a look that I am going for).

Wonderful cat picture! Jetsam looks like he needs a tummy rub.

Don't tell Jetsam, but Sissy can do that... ;)

I knit Amelia and can recommend the pattern. It is well written, not difficult knitting and it's a sweater I wear.

Now Jetsam, I must argue, check out my Pembroke Welsh Corgi at the bottom of this blog post:

Can't resist a Jetsam picture! Give him a belly rub for me.

Please give Jetsam a head rub for me too!

I know what you mean; half the fun of a knitting project is mulling it over in your brain, and doing the planning of yarn, buttons, etc. I hope you get to knit the sweater soon though!

Jetsam- Corgis- pffffft!

Love the Jetsam pose. Romy used to do that and then flip when you tried to give her a belly rub. Now Ms. Tinna will jump in whenever anyone is willing to pet her.

Love the proposed sweater.

Malcolm could not agree more. Corgis! Hphmmm...

(Happy belated birthday Lisa!)

That's cute! The BFF might like it 3/4 sleeve too. If I was knitting Christmas presents.

Jetsam is right. There is no way a corgi could do that so adorably but it *was* his b'day, so shhhh.

The birthdays march on! Happy, happy! Life being good.

P. S. Planning is the best part.
