I know this is a little late, but today was Take Your Dog to Work Day – I couldn’t take the dogs on the train, but Maggie joined Larry at work – he works at home, but he took Maggie up to the office and put her to work….
She did a little computer work….
A little filing…
Then Larry had her cover a conference call….
I don’t think she was impressed with the working life. Larry said that after all that work, Maggie ran downstairs and wouldn’t budge from the couch all afternoon. Poor dog!
Thanks for all the nice comments on Icarus. I wore it to work today – and it was really nice – very squishy and soft and warm – I was very happy to wear it as it was a little chilly. I haven’t started the next shawl, but the yarn is wound and the pattern is copied and I’ll probably start it this weekend.
Yarn: Handspun, Crown Mountain Fiber superwash roving, Say a Little Prayer colorway
Weight: no idea – didn’t really do the WPI on this yarn – think it is around a sport weight/DK
Started: May 30, 2008
Finished: June 17, 2008
Pattern: Baby Cable Rib, Sensational Knitted Socks
I actually finished these the same day as Icarus, so I had Cieara model both – her feet are smaller than mine so they are a little baggy, but I love them. Isn’t it funny how different the two colors are? One looks like a washed out version of the other – but I do like them, and I’m so happy I finally made something with my handspun.
It was such a long week – I am really ready for the weekend. Not a lot of plans, but hopefully some down time with Larry. I got a nice package in the mail today, and started another train project…but I’ll show you that next time. Now it is time for my Friday night routine….have a great one!
