I’ve been busy taking hundreds dozens of photos with the new D-SLR, messing around and mixing up the settings. It’s been interesting. Some have been complete failures, and others have been pretty cool.
I also have put in some time on the No Purl Monkey socks. I’m past the gusset decreases on both socks and motoring my way down to the toes:
I’ve also been full of inspiration for new sock projects:
I really do need to get that Norwegian Star hat assembled, but I just can’t put down those No Purl socks. This morning before we went out with the dogs, it was -1° but -5°C with the wind chill. Brrrr. I managed to convince the dogs to wait a little while and we went out later than usual, but it had warmed up a bit.
This concludes the knit/sock content. The rest of the entry is going to be greyhounds, pic heavy, so feel free to move on …
You might notice that the manky old wallpaper has been removed from Apollo’s room. I spent a few hours on Thursday doing that. The big fella was away over night Thursday and when he returned on Friday night it took him a long time to figure out what change I had made in the house. Trained observer, indeed.
[and also – depth of field experiment]
I bought a couple of baby/infant winter hats and balaclavas at W@l Mart yesterday, just to see how I could redesign my attempts to make them fit the poopers. This one slays me. It fits pretty good, but I think the balaclavas would be easier to keep on them. But I love how he looks!!
We had to go out late this morning and run errands and get some things at the home centre – and then the big fella insisted we HAD to buy the snowblower today. [sigh] We got a very good deal on it, and now it’s sitting in the garage and he’s happily waiting for a blizzard.
And now it’s pupper supper time …
