October is the birthday month of my sister. Her name is Andrea (even though we call her Susi). I thought those mitts would be perfect for her.
pattern: Andrea's mitts by Kirsten Kapur
yarn: KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, colors Coal & Fog, one skein each
They've arrived, and have been well received.
Then there are some bed socks I've knit in between all of what I've been doing. Knit with 3.75mm for extra loose fit. Request for another pair has been made. :o)
The last three days we've been worried about Maggie. She's been limping. One of her rear leg seems to bother her. From the time we've notices something wrong, and a day of rest, and easy, which did not bring improvement, we went to the Vet yesterday.
Maggie tensed up like a fruitcake. All muscles, all tense, so it was hard for the Vet to feel her leg, and find out anything. Maggie walked around like nothing was wrong there in the office, when at home she was hoping around on three legs.
For now, we are supposed to give her pain killers, and watch her for the next five days. If there's no improvement we'll have to do x-rays. It's hard to keep her quiet though, and away from the boys too. It's better if she only gets to see them one on one, less horse-playing around.
Oh, yeah, that's Maggie in front, Denny, and Happy in the Dining room. When I'm preparing dinner, they hang around, changing places all around, but basically just waiting for something to fall off the counter, or something to lick like a bowl, or anything else for that matter.
