Things I've been unable to find in the last week:
1. Size 7 knitting needles. I thought I had a 7 Addi and 7 Aero, can't find either.
2. A dvd that I burned episodes of Knitty Gritty on. Thankfully they were still on the dvr and I could burn them again.
3. My magnetic board, which has a graph still on it
4. The Garnstudio pattern that I translated (later found)
Whoever is coming in my house and hiding my things, 'fess up. I won't be mad, just let me know where things are. It couldn't possibly be me being unorganized.
I took a break from knitting yesterday and did some finishing. I did some of the crochet for the Garn cardi. It's going to the frog pile. The crochet part wasn't too bad but I wasn't so happy with it that I want to keep it. And there's something about the way it fits around the armhole that I don't like. It's like there is too much fabric but yet too binding. I don't know how to explain it. I don't think it's my seaming because I was quite proud of how well I'd finished this one. I'm going to blame the yarn I used because blame has to fall somewhere, right? I seamed the shoulders and sleeves of the baby hoodie. The hood looks like it's going to be way too big so I may rip it and just pick up around the neck and knit it up new. Sometimes I feel like I should be knitting washcloths.
Bella starts obedience classes on March 4. When we brought her home, we sort of spoiled her. I tend to think of pets from the humane society as poor abused mistreated non-loved little creatures. I know that's not true, but that was my justification for spoiling this one. She also needs a little socialization. I don't want her to be afraid of other animals or people, but I don't want her attacking any either. She's such a fun dog. She loves to go for r-i-d-e-s which is something that Brandi hated. I love to watch her pounce things that she thinks is hiding under the ivy. She drags sticks (no, tree limbs!) that are 3 times her length across the yard. She actually makes a wood pile with all the sticks she gets. She has her issues too. She tries to get your attention with her mouth, meaning she grabs ahold of you or your clothes. She will still jump on us even though we've tried putting up our knees when we see it coming. I'd really like that habit to stop before the in-laws get here next weekend. At least she stopped drooling so we don't have to worry about anyone sitting in a drool spot on the couch.
Ah yes, the in-laws are coming next weekend. I'll procrastinate the cleaning until the day before they get here, then I'll start with something stupid like going through my socks or organizing crap under the bed. Husband got tickets for the aquarium, but other than that I don't know if we'll be doing anything other than sitting around and going crazy. His parents are sweet people but they'll irritate him and put him in a bad mood. It usually takes longer for them to irritate me, but it will happen nonetheless. I may be doing a lot of knitting next weekend!
