A new baby!!!

I got my Christmas present early! His name is Toby. The vet says that he is a Doxie and Corgi mix. The pound said Doxie and Beagal mix. I believe the vet, as I have a Beagal mix and they don't look anything alike! Ditto (Blue collar) is being the "mom" with him also. Katie (black coat with green collar) is so big now. She is 40-45lbs now! So, much for my lapdog. Well, Toby is only 10lbs now and he is 6months already, so hopefully he will only get to maybe 20lbs. Still lap size then.

Here is just a cute pic of all the girls trying to sleep on the same cushion that I put on the floor for them to use as a bed.

Still knitting. And crocheting. R's Christmas present is almost done. Uncle C's isn't started yet, but I am thinking a beanine hat. Easy but warm! Started crocheting Toby a coat to wear. Will post pics of everything after Christmas with who got what.

Happy Knitting and Merry Christmas!

p.s. Have a safe and happy trip Anne!

Well, I have most of my Christmas knitting done, just R's left to do. I know, the man that I love and adore is left to last. But really it is because I can't decide what to make him. I decided to make a scarf and he picked out the yarn. I think that I have started that project so many time that I will have to cut off the first few yards because it is unraveling. I still have to think of something for one of my uncles as he lives in the desert like me and really doesn't need any handknits but it supposed to be low 50's to high 40's tonight. I know, I know, it is snowing in other parts of the country right now, but when the rest of the year is 90 - 120 degrees here, 50 is cold!

Final is tomorrow so I am supposedly studying! I feel confident in myself though.

A lady that I met on Ravelry and I met for our first knitting group. It was so cool! Apparently, there is another lady in town that would like to knit with us. This is way cool! I haven't ever gone to a knit group before.

Oh! I may have an interview for a job that I really, really want!!!! Please keep your fingers crossed for me. Thank you, but I don't want to say anything more until after the interview!

Have a Question for you

Good Morning!

I have a question for you that read this. I have been haunting Etsy lately and have seen some wonderful things! I started thinking, I am crafty and such, so why not start an Etsy store? Ok, this is where I would like your input, what are you looking for when you go to Etsy? Now, I am talking knitting and spinnning things. Here are some of the things that I know how to do:

Dying fiber
Beading (Jewelry)
Wire wrapping

So, what do you think? I would really appricate any comments.

Happy Knitting!
