And here is the promised picture of the pups..
We have a Blenheim male, a Ruby male and 2 Ruby females.. They’re gorgeous and cuddly and still have their eyes closed. Hopefully in the next couple of days they’ll open and we’ll be able to take some more piccies and have them playing in the yard etc..
On a knitting note, I finally finished the Socktopus Mystery Shawl KAL and it’s stunning. I love the way the pattern worked up and I’ll make another soon I think. 🙂
Yarn: The Plucky Knitter Silk/Merino in Container Gardening
Pattern: SMSKAL via Twitter
Needles: 4mm Knit Picks Harmony Circulars
Modifications/Notes: I didn’t change anything. But I did miss out part of the second clue by accident! It didn’t really make that much difference, I just rejigged the figures. Also, I ran out of yarn and had to miss out the middle part of Clue 3 and then had to miss out the last two rows so I had enough yarn to cast-off. You definitely need over 400yds for the whole shawl.
I started my language course this week and it’s going pretty well. We had an excursion yesterday to a town nearby, Muenster, and here are a few random shots:
At this point my camera battery ran out and I had to switch to my mobile phone camera, so I’ll put those up some other time.
Anyway, the weekend is nearly over and I have another wash load to put on… apologies in advance for the lack of blogging in the coming month, but I’ll try and put something up whenever I can.
