bootie, originally uploaded by a-chan.

Well, there's really 3 of them. This first one didn't turn out like I wanted it to. There's nothing really wrong with it, except for the fact that I pulled the buttons off one of Richard's old hawaiian print shirts he threw in my sewing rag pile and I went back to get more buttons off of it for the second one and there were no other buttons! It was crazy. So, I knit two other ones and used buttons off another rag shirt and they're cute. This is a camera phone picture, so it's a little fuzzy (tried to make it look better with picnic, it might have helped).

I forgot my knitting again today so the bus ride home is going to be looonnngg! If I had more money left after the mortgage and other bills, I'd walk down to Knit/Purl and get some yarn and needles and that would be remedied.... However, since I spent a good couple of months yarn money in one shot at the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival, I have enough yarn for awhile and can't afford any more.

This weekend, I built a Tinker-Toy swift from directions I found somewhere (link to come once I go look for it). It's cool! I have a picture of that I should post when I get home. Richard was really impressed with it, partly because it can be taken apart and put away when not using it. He's really a good sport with the yarn all over the house, but the tinkertoy swift was a bit much for him. (He did say it was really cool) The dog really likes it to, especially when I drop pieces of it and he grabs them and goes and hides. So far there hasn't been any casualties, but he's such a quick little bugger that it's only a matter of time.

It's been awhile since I posted a new Chibi picture, so here's one that's from Labor Day:


To me, he looks so skinny and skeletal in this pictures. He's definitely gained a few more 10ths of a pound since then. I keep thinking he's too skinny, but the vet says he's fine. He's going to stay a little dog. At his last visit, he had almost reached 4 pounds. I really thought that he'd be a bit bigger because of the jack russell in him.

He's going in to be snipped this Friday. I'm really excited, but I'm sure he won't like it (at least at first).

I'm having another ultrasound (the "official" one this time) sometime this week. I have to wait for them to call and then I'm suppose to just drop everything and go. Work is okay with this, so I guess I am too.
