Finished Object/Half Finished Object/ and Gratuitous Swag Shots

Knit Night at The Sow's Ear on Friday night was a blast. I started another multi directional scarf (pinks and greys) and bought fiber for another (aqua, pink, yellow). I'm not TOOOO addicted...yeah right. I sat at the Troublemaker's Table which may or may not have been called that simply because I sat there-I'm not tellin'. When the conversations turned to nuns underwear, or 'nunderwear' ,I knew I was in the right place. Another tasty tidbit was when Friend-Anne said that she had recently seen a sign in a restaurant that said, "Unattended children will be given espresso and a free puppy" which set us all off. That's the kind of night it was...my favorite kind.

The Ear has been sold to someone else, but looks like things are going to stay much the way they are right now. The new owners were introduced and were really sweet. Don't know what I'd do without my favorite local fix!

Spent all day yesterday sick. It was a glorious day and I spent my day in bed. Did get some reading done though. Pig Island is one creepy book!

Today we are puttering and my boss is bringing his dog by later to meet Bentley. We'll see if they get along before he leaves him here for two weeks while he goes on vacation. I don't imagine there will be a problem. Both dogs are the same size and temperament and I think they'll have a blast. We'll let them have a little doggie rampage in the backyard this afternoon just to make sure. But wanted to get these photos posted before they get here.

I definitely must try a multidirectional scarf in something that is not a solid color. Yours look great! WOW, I didn't know the Sow's Ear had been sold. You didn't buy it, eh?

I love the scarves that you have made! I have always wanted to make one, but it is always put off and then forgotten about until I see someone elses! So now you have got me thinking again!

I had heard the Sow switched hands and I am curious, curious! I am thinking if there is room, I should take that yarn dying class on June 3 - just to make a mess somewhere else:)

So fun to here you might be a troublemaker!:) I am off to look up some nunderwear!

psst - your maple leaf socks will be hot!
