Shoot Me, Please

Wow, dog sitting is really kicking my ass. I was up from 3am to 5am last night while the older dog Bailey (she is at least 13yrs old…) panted, licked herself, and walked around with her nails on the wood floors. I can usually sleep through that stuff but I bugged me last night. So at about 6:30 I gave up and got my day started. Not bad though because I am usually up at about 7am. I let them out and saw how pretty the sunrise looked on the canal. I don’t ever get to see this because the sun is already up by 7am and my house doesn’t have a great view of it like this house does. Pretty huh?


I wanted this post to go up two days ago but my camera was completely dead and I had no idea where the charger was. Now that I found it I could get some pictures of my first FO of 2008. I *finally* finished the Sweet Baby Hat for my cousin. I finished in on Sunday afternoon but I will wait to send it off until I get a couple other things for her. I just love the cute little ties! I tied it on my cat’s head when I finished but she really didn’t like that.

So now I’m off to fine some fabric to make a baby blanket to go with the hat. I may even stop by the knit night at All Stung Out in Cocoa Beach. I am all alone tonight so why not?

Sorry the dog sitting isn't all it's cracked up to be. It's never easy to be comfortable in someone else's house, and then to have to adapt to someone else's pet's routines, too. That's almost torture.

The hat is adorable! You did a great job. Sorry it tweaked kitty out, though. That would have made a great picture.

And hey, now that the holiday craziness is over, maybe we can get together soon for some knitting time. I actually put the yarn and needles in my bag to cast on for my cami a few days ago. It's still just a thought, but soon it'll be a reality. :)

Love the baby hat! I've been meaning to make that one... I love the shaping in that pattern!

Did you go to knit night. I almost did. Gail makes it sound so tempting.
