That's what Sam's doing these days. He started out like above and ended up like in the next picture. He's being a very good dog. His recovery is still very slow. The first excitement of the last visit to the vet was dampened, as we discovered first, that he still needs both pain medications, and second he's got a broken tooth, which needs to be monitored. Otherwise he's quite happy.
Now for the knitting content: This is my beloved Noro blanket. I haven't knit on it for days, because I've been knitting exclusively on the slip stitch scarf, which is turning the corner for the final sprint. Thank god, is all I can say to that!
I've only done four and a half rows so far. I'm using two different colorways for it. Noro Kureyon is 100% wool, but it still is very soft, ideal for a blanket, this is going to be all mine, mine, mine! ;o) I made the center decrease to form a little ridge. I like the extra texture it forms. Even though I've got many more rows to go, in the back of my head I'm already thinking of the border. Which one will it be? I'm sure I'm not going to have enough yarn for the border, will have to buy more Kureyon, oh well. This is such a fun project. I've learned the method to add the squares so you don't have to sew them later from Vivian Hoxbro and her book "Domino Knitting", a fine little book! And there are only 4 ends to weave in for each row! So, that's it for now. I'll be back after the holidays. Wish you peaceful and stress free days ahead!
