Spring Forward

For this two-week period in SOS08 I'm knitting Spring Forward. Many of the knitters are using this pattern and I know why. It is a speedy knit. There are no purls, only knits, ssk's, k2tog, and yo's. I'm using a ball of Trekking XXL, I think the number is 100. It doesn't look springy, but I like brights. The picture washed out some of the brightness, but I took the photo after dark. When I get them finished I will take one outside in natural light.

Buster took a trip to the vet's office today for a manicure. His nails were so long he looked miserable. He fights me when I try to trim them, so I pass him off to the techs at the vet's office. He doesn't mind going there at all. In fact, all my dogs have loved going there. Bunny rode along but stayed outside with the big guy.

The vet decided to reduce Bunny's meds again, not as low as before, and to continue there until he gets back from vacation on the 23rd.

The pictures were taken with my new camera. I'll eventually learn how to operate it, I hope.

I had a nice day off today. It rained and rained. That means we stayed mostly inside and read and knitted. I enjoy that occasionally on my day off. I only hope that by Friday it will be dry enough to get on the golf course.

The colors are perfect for your sock! The trekking colors always throw me off - I would have walked right past it! Thanks for opening my eyes up to something new!
