I finished the knit hat.
I could not wait to get this finished and over with.
It's not supposed to be that way, but that's how knitting makes me feel.
I feel like I'm taking an ass-whippin' instead of having fun.
So I made some crochet gloves and had a ball doing it.
That's more like it.
The pattern is Lady Kathryn Fingerless Gloves...

We put the tree up.
As you can see, most of our snow finally melted. The temps have been in the high 30s for several days now and it's been raining. More snow coming later in the week though. Yay.
And finally, two of our babies to make you smile...
Janie (Jane Doe)
If you don't know the story, she is blind. We found on the side of the highway while on vacation three years ago. We spent at least two hours trying to find her owner that day and looked online for months after we brought her home, but we were unsuccessful. At that time she was only blind in one eye, but she has slowly lost the site in her other eye over the last three years. She's quite remarkable in how she lives with her blindness. She's always happy and maneuvers her way around very well. What an angel dog.
Eli (Elijah), the alpha dog in the family.
He keeps himself separated from the rest of the dogs 99% of the time. They all lay around in piles on top of each other, but he will not join them. He definitely thinks he's in charge and routinely keeps the others in line with his growling and snarling and general bitchiness. He rarely will play with any of them either. He's not that way towards us at all though. He's happy and playful and always wants to be where we are. He's especially fond of Ken. He's a daddy's boy for sure.
I'm outta here.
