New and creative ways to kill our dog.

Does that not look like the saddest, sickest doggie in the whole world? In our ignorance as dog owners, we are going to accidentally kill our poor, beloved little money pit! We didn't know that you shouldn't give dogs bones of any kind! We thought she was getting a treat!! Now she has a bone shard lodged in her stomach. The vet thinks that it will naturally break down, and we have been, um, bulking up her diet to help it along.... But in the meantime, she doesn't feel good. And can't figure out why we took away the yummy steak bone that got her in trouble in the first place!

Look what I did last night, as promised!It blocked out to 54" wide, which isn't as large as I had envisioned, but quite substantial nonetheless.... I have it unpinned now, and it drapes nicely around the shoulders, and all the way to the tailbone in back, but can't be wrapped back around. Next time, I will add ten repeats!

Note to self, though, use blocking wires for the top edge of lace shawls. It held those points nicely.... which I didn't want it to. I am trying to decide now if I need to reblock the top with wires....

In the meantime, here is a dark, blurry lace detail:

MUST KNIT MORE LACE! The Peasy Sweater, which will no doubt be stunning, is boring the heck out of me!!

The Swallowtail rocks... great work! How did you like the Dream in Color Baby? I just swapped for a hank of it on Ravelry - a different colorway called GoGo Grassy - not sure I'm going to like either the color or the laceweight, but I lost my cool in a fit of mad swapping et - voila! I'm waiting for it to be mailed to me...
