Happy National Pet Day!

Hi Everyone, did you know that today was National Pet Day?  I missed that yesterday was National Sibling Day....and I am sure my sister will forgive me...but my dogs might not forgive me if I forget National Pet Day....LOL!

Here are two of my pets :)



Now, a friend also reminded me last Thursday that it was National No Housework Day...so I hope you did not do any cleaning!  :)



I hope everyone had a great week...Mine was pretty good.  I wish the weather would decide what it wants to do because it is messing with my allergies and not any fun.

Jaime and I went for a nice motorcycle ride this past Saturday and I only took some pictures where the bat caves are.....I really should have taken more pictures:




We went to Luckenback and it was super nice....now, I did also get to stop in Comfort and a quick run into Tinsmith's Wife was necessary to get my friend some of the Wrapture for her to block items....I did manage to get a picture of that to send her....LOL!


As for stash enhancements for me.....I got some yarn that was another winning item from the Down Cellar Studios Podcast...it is a skein of yarn from Sunsoaked Yarns in the Arizona Cardinals colorway.  Jodi of Sunsoaked yarns even included some of the cutest straws with gold hearts on them.  Thank you Jodi!



I also ordered yarn......YIKES!  Paige came over and wanted to show me some pillows that her friend sewed for her.  There is a black one, tan one, and one with red and floral print.  They are very cute!


 So, she has informed me that I need to make her a blanket to match.  She wants small stripes and something like a ribbing look.....so I ordered some Knit Picks Swish Worsted in these colors:


I will probably hold 4 together at once to make a super bulky weight on some size 35's.  I'll see how that looks.

That is it for any stash enhancements....so onto the knitting.

Well, remember I said that Paige came over....well, she tried on my Citadel....and while it is too big for her (I did make the XL size for me), she loves it and her smile was all it took for me to cave....so she took it home.


I picked a grey tonal as my yarn winnings so I can make myself a sweater.  I showed you guys 3 sweaters and I am going to go with Portage.  I think it will be gorgeous with the cables on the back.



I worked on my 3 Color Cashmere Shawl....I am to my last white section, then one black section and I will be done...Yeah!



I worked on my Hypercrazy, but I am not sure how often I am going to post pictures of this project.  I am only working on it for my hour at lunch breaks......so it will be slow going.  At some point, it will take one hour just for one row!


I worked on my April Socks


The last thing I worked on this week is a test knit for a friend.  Her pattern is already done and out...but sometimes she asks me to test knit the written portion since I prefer to read the written portion over the chart....so here it is:





That is all I have as far as knitting this week!  The only other thing I wanted to share with you is some new tea I tried....it is TAZO earl grey, but it has some lavender essence in it...it was yummy!


Here is a cute video of Antonio hitting some golf balls....look at that form...watch out Jordan Spieth!



I hope you all have a fantastic week!



Happy Happy Happy Knitting!
