Well, it has been a week since Honeys' surgery. We have been to the doctor and she is doing well. This week has been hard and great at the same time. With so many kids and with all their activities and our activities sometimes, "Our Time" gets lost. This past week everyone has been out of the house so we have had lots of us time. We have watched movies, talked, giggled, planned, napped, and figured out how much we really like being together. My mom once told me, (and she had five kids in eight years) that if a couple can get through the kid years, it is so worth it. I guess every now and then a couple still needs some time away from the kids during the kid years. I know I do. I got one more day and then back to sharing her with everyone. So, tomorrow I am making her favorite biscuits and gravy for breakfast, grilled cheese for lunch and spagetti with meat sauce and garlic bread for dinner. And so now you can see how the picture above ties into my thoughts for today!!!!

This container is seven months worth of fur from Max and Baby. I know it doesn't seem like a lot for huskies and it isn't but we haven't had a "coat blow" yet. I understand that when these dogs blow their coats it gets ugly. Maybe since I have the furmanitor it won't really be bad and ugly. Fingers crossed.It is really compacted and stuffed in there. Hopefully, the spring coat blow will allow me to send this fur out to be spun into yarn. I hope to have four of these filled by the time I send it out. Go here for info on dog hair yarn.

Lots of antibiotics and pain meds later, we are home. The inflammation needs to go away and then surgery.
Well, I am off to put Honey to bed. More tomorrow.

And finally, I made this bit of hotness today!!! One down, six to go!! This year we all get new stockings!!! Pretty good if I do say so myself. I used a pattern, McCalls. Fabric is from WalMart, $2.00 a yard and I can probably get two more stockings out of the yard. But of course, I can't do that because no one can have the same stocking. Mix and match but not exact.

I used Bernat Softee Chunky, I think. I have done cables, but the cabled cast on and thumb part were new. Taking out the waste yarn to add the thumb was very scary, but I did it!!! Maybe now, actual gloves! I am out of practice using dpn's, I prefer two circs. But I don't think gloves can be made (the finger parts) with circs!!! Anyone out there who has done gloves with circs???? Well, off to start the next hand!!!!

It is from the Mason-Dixon Knitting book. The baby kimono pattern. It was easy and fun and I will be making this pattern again. I used peaches and creme in pink. Below is the baby hat I made for Daijah, the baby girl of one players on the Amazons (thank you to Contrary for the linking help!!! As you can see you did help and I am linking like crazy!!!!!). I used an old Red Heart freebie pattern that I have and is totally tatered. Anyway, it is made in the round and the pattern can be adjusted to use about 80 million different yarn weights and 80 million different size heads!! (Ok maybe not 80 million, but you get the idea!!) Daijah is so freakin' cute and I am gonna miss seeing her every week!!!!
