Sleepy Winter Days And Some Knitting Experiments

I cannot believe it has been two weeks since my last post...I guess these winter days have everyone in my house, including me, in a funk. You might notice a theme as you look through these photos......are we lazy?? The answer I think, must be no, I guess everyone in my house just knows the value of a good nap now and then. I can never put the sheets on the floor on laundry day before bringing them down to the basement or little Dudley will set himself up for a long nap in them.

A typical lazy scene in the living room.

Simiilar scene except for the fact that everyone has migrated to the dining room, not by choice either, this photo means that I'm currently busy vacuuming the living room carpet and needed to move the dog beg (dogs and all) so I could clean around the spot this bed usually occupies.

While I have felt the urge to curl up on the dog bed and sleep away the rest of winter, I have resisted the desire and instead have been having a lot of fun getting started in knitting. My first two projects were a baby blue scarf and matching fingerless gloves. I've got more to come and I'll keep you posted. Knitting, as I'm finding out, is quite an addictive hobby.

Oh, I love the blue you chose for you scarf and gloves. I have never knitted. Wish I knew how... I once could crochet a string, but that's about it. Lovely.

Hi Ruth, So great to see you and thank you for stopping by and your kind comment.

What wonderful pics of the sweeties. They look so comfy curled up on their beds. Miss Beazy has been doing the same this winter as or weather has been very cold for us. We are even due for more cold days next week. Looking forward to Spring.

Love your knitting project too. I know it is very addictive and lots of fun as the design comes together. The blue yarn you are using is very pretty. I am working on a crochet throw in the broomstick lace pattern. It is nice to pick up in my down time and relax with.
Enjoyed catching up on your posts. Your puzzle pendants are beautiful.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Ruth your little helpers look VERY productive. ; ) They follow you from room to room and supervise, right? Love our knit creations, I am imagining you staying warm and indoors with the critters on a cold winter day. xoxox

It always brings a smile to my face when I think of Dudley laying on his sheets.:)

Nice to see you enjoying knitting. Looks like you're doing a beautiful job already!

Hi Ruth

Goodness what would we do without our fury friends? Yours are the cutest

Well done with the knitting, I used to love knitting, not sure when and why I stopped, maybe next winter I might take it up again.

take care ~ Gail
