A new member to our family

We have added a new member to our family. He is a little Shih-Poo who is black with white on his tummy, tip of his toe and chin and white on the bottom of his paws. We thought of 4 different names: Quincy, Quinn, Lucks, and Harley (we had a Harleigh with are lapapoo). Quincy won out and he's seems to like it. He's only been home for 2 hrs and I can here him crying in the basement. Quincy was born on August 31st, 2006 and is one of seven puppies. If he gets lonely one of the girls at work has his sister. That's how I found out about him was from her! Thank you Linda!

We took some photos at the pet store and at home. He is very photogenic. Well off to down load the photos and then post them.

What I am currently working on

I haven't done a whole heck of alot of knitting this week. My left arm and elbow have been hurting me. I feel 3 years ago at work and hit my elbow on the ground - so a piece of bone is floating around. Every now and then it acts up and it has chosen the last few weeks to do so. I had my tension brace on today and it is helping.

I am still working on the dishcloths and sad to say I haven't gotten any more done. Still working on Number 16. I have however started another scarf, this one is made by Belle and is a lovely shade of black with silver flecks. Very pretty! And very pricey!!! Its $17.95 a ball but I got it for 30% off - still pricey but lovely to work with.

Last week I did a lovely scarve in Patons Carme in white with flecks of brown and black. Feels like a bunny and I love it. Too bad its going to be a price for our social committee at work.

Our brownie enrollment was awesome! We had alot of parents there (I'd say MOST parents came) and we had 17 girls enrolled. Had a lovely cake and McCain's fruit punch. Lots of fun was held by all. This week we are having our Halloween Party. Can't wait! But what will I be?

Signed up for the Fall Cable KAL 2006

I just signed up for the Fall Cable KAL 2006. ( I am looking forward to this. I am working on the Irish Hiking Scarf, another KAL and I have that cable sweater to finish. Maybe this will give me incentive to finish it.

Snow days

Snow days! Snow days! Good ol' fashion cold days. hehe We had snow on Wednesday, Octobre 12, 2006. This is the first time we have had snow this early in along time! I can't recall snow this early but my mil does. Here is the Sarnia area we had blizzard like conditions and white outs but not alot of snow stayed on the ground. It got cold and the snow was blowing but nothing like Fort Erie, ON or New York or Buffalo.

Haven't done alot of knitting this week but I did make a scarf for a raffle at work. I must say I love it! Its made form Patons Carmen in a white colour with brown and black flecks. It is so soft and feels like a bunny! Everyone at works likes it - so I kept mentioning it was for the Social Committee raffle next month.

Still working on the dish cloths and my daughter's sweater. One of these days it will get done.

Matt and Miki's Sweaters

Well I told the kids that I would work on their sweaters this weekend. Its a long weekend due to our Thaksgiving. Yeah turkey!

So...... I spent tonight and finished off Matthew's sleeve. Pitiful that I only had 30 rows to go. The knitting is done and all I have left for his is to sew the sleeve on and tuck in all the ends. And there is alot!

Now with Miki's I had two sleeves and to finish the front, neck and sew and tuck ends in. Well I completed one sleeve tonight. I would of casted on another one at 12:30am but I want to make sure the length is right (so I don't have to rip it, rip it).

Also, I saw in the Owen Sound Suntimes that Riverside Yarns is finally open. Will have to go and check it out tomorrow. Can't buy any yarn as I have way too much as it is. But if I am good maybe in the spring.

Will post pictures of the sweaters when I am done. My camera is at home and still has to be down loaded from last time.
