Knitting and Puppies and Summer

I am officially on summer break!! That's right I took finals yesterday and I think I did ok!!! While being on puppy duty, I have managed to finish and start some knitting. Two bracelet bags, from Crazy Aunt Purl. I think they came out pretty good!!

And now for puppy pictures!! That's Pudge and Daddy!! They have grown so much in 11 days it is amazing. Most are spoken for and will be going to homes of people we know. One puppy is going to get me a security door and new sliding glass back door. Sweet!!!!!!

Mama and her babies. Can you believe how BIG they are? Neither can I.
This cutie is Peanut.

Babies are babies.......

Whether they are human or not, having little beings in the house is exhausting!!!!! But they are the cutest little things. I guess exhaustion is going around. Ms. Baby is a great mom. But she needs to go out every hour or so, cause I guess, she is eating and drinking so much to feed all those mouths. Which means Honey and I are up every hour or so to let her out. Thank goodness my last class was today and my final is next Wednesday. Then summer!!!
I love this picture. The behind you are gazing upon belongs to Peanut, the smallest of the group.
Max is just confused and apparently not allowed near his puppies. Just yet. Another week or so I'm thinking Mom will be happy to let somebody else take over the watching of babies.
This monster is Spot, due to the fact he has a spot of white on his back. He is already spoken for being the only male of the group. And he is the biggest of the group.

Next week eyes and ears should open up. I am knitting right now. Socks for Honey but I am stuck at the gusset and heel. So, until I can get to a meeting, I think I will pick something simple to start. I really want to try Crazy Aunt Purls bracelet purse. I have the bracelets, just need to pick yarn and I think just to mix it up I'm gonna add some beading.
All stars is coming up soon and then blessed relief!!!!! Softball and baseball will be done!!!!!! I am really looking forward to some down time!!!!

Finally!! After 24 hours of labor - during which Honey and I got no sleep!!- 3 girls and 2 boys!! The puupies got here pretty quickly once she got going. One every 15 minutes or so. Well, except for baby girl number 3 - she decided to make her grand entrance an hour and a half after everyone else!! Baby is a good mama, Honey have been picking up babies and cleaning, etc. with not even a sideways glance from the new mom. Well, she did look sideways at kittykitty!!!
Only four puppies here - we thought we were done!!!

But nope - there are five!!!!

She had decided our bed was a great place to give birth!!!! She got moved mere moments before the big event!!!! Notice how I spent the 24 hours of labor - see the KNITS mag behind her?
This is how we got into her whelping box. Honey had to get in with her!!!! Honey stayed there through three births!!!!!
OK off to take a nap!!!!

Pictures, pictures, pictures and a couple of surprises!!!!!!

Look what I got in the mail!!!! And it's signed!!! I bought it at Stitches West this year!!! Love it!!!!! Love it!!!!!! Love it!!!!!!
I made the following two baby jackets for a coworker of Honeys'. The pattern is from Cabin Fever. The pattern is called Homecoming Layette #615.
These patterns are pretty cool 'cause they are knit top down with NO SEAMING!!!!!! I also have a signed copy of the sweater book on the webpage. (Got that at Stitches West also)

Ok some really cute pics of the spoiled ones!!!! Isn't this the cutest picture EVER? Notice any thing about Ms. Baby? Keep looking....
Ignore the mess that is Max's room, please....

Ok really? How freaking cute is this one???? Ms. Baby is 50 pounds for crying out loud!!!!!!
Love her "smile" in this picture.
Notice it now? By the way, I made the quilt for the dogs.
Now I ask you, did my dogs land in niravana or what? That is Max (and he is 70+ pounds!!!) on the back of my couch!!!! He thinks he is the chihuahua!!!!
I KNOW you notice it now... yup, puppies on the way!!! Any day now!!!

See, I come by the knitting thing honestly!!! That's my mom!!

No doubt!!! That's my mama!!!!!And that's my boy!!!
One picture is all I what, but all I get is this........!
you see correctly, if he can get rid of the chihuahua, he can sit on the back of the couch and BE the chihuahua of the house! Just kidding. They were only playing but cute, huh?Max with his toy!!!!Honey at the gym kicking booty!!!!Kitty kitty and Mama - I love my animals!!!!Ms. Baby......and Max (the babydaddy!!)Just a cool shot from the Dodger/Red Soxs game (preseason!!)
