I'm having to take a little break from the lace to get a Harry Potter scarf knitted up before July 15:
Lots of boring stockinette, eh? I originally started knitting it on 2 straight needles double-knit style, but it wasn't going quickly enough for me. (I hate long stretches of stockinette. I know it's the process as much as the product, but still...) It's going more quickly on a 16" circular. Yes, I hate short circulars. But I want to be THROUGH with this thing as quickly as possible. At least I can read while I knit it. I'm currently working back through Paladin of Souls by Lois McMaster Bujold. This particular ebook is really well formatted, btw. You can touch on underlined links in the text for characters, places, etc. and you'll go to an appendix that tells you a bit about the thing referenced in the link. Very cool.
Dog stuff (no knitting content):
Jasper's gotten a lot of blog time lately, so I figured it was time to mention the other dogs a little. Here's Jasper with his partner in crime, Bouncer:
Bouncer's my buddy. He loves his mama (me.) Even though he's about 8 years old, he's the only one of my dogs that will play with Jasper even a little. As Jasper's gotten older, he's decided that he can boss Bouncer around more. And Bouncer's a soft, sweet dog, and doesn't challenge him.
Here's my old lady, Cammie, aka Cambot, aka Baby Bop, aka the Bot. Cammie's about 14, and feeling her age. But she's a sweet old lady, and we'll keep her and care for her as long as we can. And she's the only other female in the household. Cammie's main job these days is holding down the sofa. She does like to sit by the fence gate sometimes and watch the kids go by.
I love my puppies.
