Finished Objects 2008

I didn't knit a ton this year but what I did knit I had a lot of fun doing. The wee socks are a hoot, the Soctoberfest Mystery Sock was a blast and Casey's birthday hat is just crazy. And a toy turtle? What is better? Hopefully 2009 will bring even more happiness from my needles.

Happy Holidays! / Puppy Madness!

I've been neglecting my blog lately and for that I apologize. I must have needed a break. This holiday break has been very laid back, I was sick to begin with so now I've just been relaxing, catching up on things and spending time with the puppies. Yes, I said puppies.
Merry Christmas!
Back on December 6th, Kyle rescued a Boxer from a friend of a friend from heading to the dog pound. We had good intentions of being a transition home for her until someone could take her full time. Kyle fell in love with her in .05 seconds, it took me about 3 seconds and Casey warmed up to her in about 10 minutes (give or take a few days). They still aren't cuddle buddies or anything but each day they surprise us.
Her name is Flea (the name is growing on me) and she's somewhere in the 5 year old range. She is very well behaved and loves attention.
We did some dog sitting for our neighbor the week of the 15th. Shadow is a 1 year old Boston Terrier and the sweetest little cuddle bug. He wasn't too fond of the little santa suit I put him in though.
So other than all of this there hasn't been much going on here. Happy Holidays to you!

Six Things

Guinifer tagged me for the six things meme so here it goes ~

These are the rules:

1. Link to the person who tagged you.
2. Post the rules on your blog.
3. Write six random, arbitrary things about yourself.
4. Tag six people at the end of your post and link to them.
5. Let each person know they've been tagged and leave a comment on their blog.
6. Let the tagger know when your entry is up.

1. I drive a pickup and I love it!
2. I hate the smell of smoked oysters
3. I don't like blinking Christmas lights
4. My favorite color changes almost daily
5. I am addicted to Diet Coke
6. I think I may like MN winters better than I like the summers (let's see if this is still true in Feb or March!)

I'm tagging NorCalMrs, Valkryie Knit This, Kym, Deb, pjbknit, and Sandy - she's well on her way to blogging every day this year!
