Mom's little helper



Buster loves to help his mom. Here he is "holding down" my pattern so it won't get away. Also notice my needle with the stitches already cast on. He's holding that down too. Little Attention Junky. Notice the little white zipper bag. It has all my knitting goodies in it.



And here is Bunny in her favorite position: Face-in-Feed-Bowl. She is a chow hound. The vet did reduce her medicine again this week. Half a grain in the morning and half a grain in the evening. Maybe that will help reduce her appetite soon. He said if it is looking like thunderstorms, give her a whole tab in the a.m. and a half tab in the evening. And to continue that dosage for a couple of days after the thunderstorms are over. I haven't heard before that thunderstorms might affect seizures, but I'll try anything to help her out.



My third pair of socks for SOS08. The pattern is Diagonal Cross Rib Socks from Favorite Socks. Yarn is "Goody" by Tempted. Started 7/19/08, finished 7/30/08. I like this pattern. I've done it 3 times. It is easy to memorize and quick to knit.

Thanks to my readers who left a comment about the pastel yarn. I've had some good suggestions. Also, have any of you tried Louet Gems yarns? They have some pretty solid colors. I'm wondering if it is a nice fingering weight or is it heavier?

How can you resist a puppy face like that! :)

Also, love your finished socks. I saw them on the finished socks post (I kept waiting to see them). Good job!

And - check out this yarn that Opal is spinning at http://akamaiknitter.com/archives/426 PASTELS!! She has a shop too, maybe she will be selling it?

Cute helper! I hope your Bunny can be managed well and find the right dose of meds. It's hard having a dog with medical issues (mine has Addison's) but once managed, you'd never know there's a problem. Best of luck with that.

My Girly loves your socks.
