Yeehaa - it's a Friday round-up!

Mmmmmm Lorna's Laces Shepherd and Sock in Vera and Lakeview. I adore this sock yarn above and beyond any other I've tried. Sadly GetKnitted only have very limited colours available at the moment - I do hope they are still going to keep on stocking it. I have a small LL stash which I would like to add to.
Lottie got a parcel in the post from Auntie T (other SIL) and inside was a pink rope/tugger mouse type thing. Lottie was happy - because the toy like this that we bought her (2 weeks ago) is now just a disembodied head.
I think the mouse type thing may be winning here.
Oh no it's the Border Terrier death grip of doom......bye-bye pink mouse type thingy! Seriously, though she loves this toy, she played with it all evening. She is thriving - driving me bald. She is a Jekyll and Hyde at the moment, one minute so sweet and friendly the next fly-by terrier nipping all over the shop.

I tidied my WIP pile yesterday, a few things got frogged, you know, those good idea at the time projects that get 50 rows done and the abandoned. I am trying to keep some semblance of order to what I have on the needles this year and feel happier now with what I have left to work on. Some sock progress - still no spinning - terrier puppy has put spinning on hiatus until she learns not to bite my feet as I treadle.

Went out to dinner the other night - J loves walking through Brighton in the dark and seeing the pier and Pavilion all lit up. Lots of music this week - he is doing really well and I am loving being able to play again. I read loads of Neil Gaiman's 'Neverwhere' - oooooo do I love that book? It's brilliant.

M has had a cold which he has kindly passed on to me *pooey* so apart from a dog walk this arvo I'm in for a quiet day.

Quiet days are the most relaxing. And watching Lottie play just brings joy to the heart, she looks like such a happy dog.
