OK. So it's a hat. But I think this probably marks only the 2nd finished project for 2010.
But it's a mighty fine hat. (Well, I think so anyway.)
Malcolm graciously agreed to model the finished piece.
So happy! Love love love! The colours are just beautiful, and work so well together. It satisfied my urge to work on a stranded project, and should keep any more stranded urges at bay until the weather cools a bit. Or so I say. I've been itching to start work on "Donegal", and after all, when it comes to casting on something new, I'm not one to deny myself. I've made that quite clear in the past. *sigh*
"Wow Malcolm, that hat really suits you."
"Really? Oh, thanks Gandalf! Do you think Mom will let me wear it? It's so soft."
"I can't see why not."
I really want to thank everyone for their kind words and wishes re. my polycythemia. I appreciate it so much! It's been a confusing and demoralizing time for me, but having so many friends wish me well means a lot. I had some blood work last week, and my blood counts are starting to come down, which is a positive sign! I have to continue going every 2 weeks until he's satisfied I'm on the right dose, and the medication is working. So far, so good...
"Hi Gandalf! Hi Atticus!"
"Do you want to come in and play for a bit? I'll ask my Mom."
"No, I can't, I'm waiting for my Dad. I think we're going for a car ride!"
"The car?!! Oh wow! That's so cool!"
"Sasha, you need to play with your girlfriends, not those dweebs. I'll show you how to groom your paws! It'll be awesome! And we can have a snack too. And then watch Animal Planet, and have a nap! Yay! OK!"
Brian, Sasha's Dad, says that Sasha must have some cat in her, because she's always grooming herself like one. The funniest thing is watching her clean her face - by licking her paw, and rubbing her face with it.
"I'm just a one man wolfpack. Yup. That's me."
(If you haven't seen the movie The Hangover, do yourself a favour, and watch it.)
Have a great week everyone!
"Yeah! Have a great week! I'm just gonna be chillaxing, looking out the window, tryin' to catch bugs and stuff."
