Knit the Dog

[...because if I ever run out of yarn--- I can just knit the dogs.]

Bless me, Father, it has been...ummm.....more than a year since my last confession.

We have another granddaughter, who is now walking and talking and being very busy. GD1 is in Montessori school and really wants to be a princess most of the time except when she is a very motherly Mama Chicken, or a puppy. My hubby is less than a year away from retirement, which will be an adjustment for both of us. I'm much the same. The dogs are another year grayer and stiffer but still very much themselves. (It's all about the treats.)

I've lost some weight, roughly 40 pounds, over the last two years but have been stuck for the past nine months at one spot. I have around another 30 or 40 pounds to go depending on which diet authority one consults. My daughter has been having good success with Dukan so I am trying it too. The all protein days are tough, since we have a veggie garden this year and it is churning out tomatoes, cukes, squash, beets, and beans. The veg/protein days are easy! So far I have not had a craving I can't knit past. But I'm only four days in. Still, for me, that's a record.

Went to Sock Summit II the end of July, loads of fun, report next time.
