I've never been swimming as much, in the past several years, as I did this summer. It was just so warm, that the water in the pool was warmed up nicely. I also discovered, that I can swim after dark as well, if I don't get to swim earlier. I'm a water rat, I love being in water, swimming, diving, or just fooling around. It's a nice feeling.
We've heard about Denny, who's trying to rescue his humans, by pulling on the straps of my swim suit, in my case, but what does he do, when there's somebody in the pool, to be "rescued" with no straps, and short hair?
Denny is smart, he found two ways to solve this problem for him, there's for instance the ear lope to grab, or the nose would do nicely too. A little painful for the one to be rescued for sure. :o)
Denny is really distressed when we are in the pool, the other two are puzzled at best.
Here are all three pulling on the same rubber bone, having their daily watery fun.
I wanted to show you a prize I've won. I've got this braid from Ginny at FatCatKnits. I was on her Tour de Fleece team, and she gave out prizes randomly. My number wasn't a lucky one, but she gave me this prize for endurance, since I'd spun the most during that time. I picked the fiber - BFL - and the color myself. I need a solid color for color work. It's very pretty.
These two photos show the same fiber, imagine the color somewhat in the middle of both.
And I wanted to mention, that Rhonda is having a give away. You only have to leave a comment to get a chance of winning her latest beautiful sock pattern plus yarn to knit it in. I think there's also going to be a pattern by her daughter Valerie, fingerless mittens, she designed for a good cause. You've got until noon Friday, August 12th. Good Luck!
