Puppy's and Hospital's


We finally got a new puppy. We are calling her Sweety. She weigh's 2 pounds. She was born on January 19th. Such a cutie. She is. Joe my husband is soo happy, he even named her. He played with tiny dog alot . Now he can train and play with Sweety.

Do ya like her bandana???
Remember my mother-in-laws pup? His name is Bo Bo. He came for a visit.
He never met our bird Ozzie yet. He walked in the room and Ozzie had a fit. So BOBO cryed for hours. He was SOOOOO Scared. We all laughed so hard our stomachs hurt.

I have been so busy with my dad. He had to go up to cleveland clinic for heart surgery. So far in 1 month he has had 4 surgery's. Very stressfull. But We ALL survived. I ended up getting a bad cold. Now it's in my chest. Thank God for antibiotics.

I brought my dad home yesterday. FINALLY.

I can't wait until next saturday. The knitter's fantasy is going on . I will be taking 2 crochet classes. I wanted to take a knitting class but they must of been full. I have not been knitting or crocheting much. Way to busy. But I hope to get back to it this week.

I hope everyone is well.

new fancy yarn and fingerless mitts

This is new yarn from last week. Feeling yarn is so fun. The multi color one is silk. I think I will make a shawl with it. The varigated blue one, maybe a horizontal scarf. The green???? Not sure there.My first knitted fingerless gloves. WOW. I was nervous. But it worked. First time to use double pointed needles. I had used alpaca yarn. 1 skein and you see how much is left. I am pretty proud of myself with the thumb.
My external modem fried last week. So I could not check my emails and my favorite blogs for a while. I was surprised how much I missed it.
I went to my local yarn shop and bought more yarn since than. Plus a very cool book ( knitting). All about the knit stitch. Very cool patterns. Just plain knitting NO purling . Sounds interesting.
When you are a crocheter or knitter it seems you have soooo many ideas. Not enough time. Oh I signed up for a local Knitter's Fantasy. All day playing with yarn. I signed up for some crochet and knitting classes. In the fee you also get a really nice lunch too. April 4th. I can't wait. I never did anything like this before.
