Finally, Some Baby Knitting Done

Pattern: Slip On Booties from 50 Baby Booties to Knit
Yarn: Socks that Rock - I forget which colorway (I think pebble beach)
Started: September 26, 2007
Finished: September 27, 2006

I used the left over yarn from
here. It was a pretty easy knit, about an hour a night. I do need some practice with the seaming though. I hope to knit a few more items for the baby, even if they are easy booties/socks, but our next big project right now is painting up the baby's room. We did the first coat this morning, and even it it was only about an hour's work, at 25 weeks, I felt pretty tired after. But it's all good. I just took a nap. =)


The Big 5

Happy 5th Birthday to my boy, Milo.

I had always wanted a pug. It got to the point where I finally convinced the husband (bf at the time) to get one. Milo was supposed to be small, like pugs are. Instead we got this giant of a pug, 40 pounds when he's trim, 50+ when he's not.

At first look, Milo looks so menacing. So many people were afraid of him...until they got to know him. They all concede that he's the most gentle dog anyone has ever met. He doesn't like when people put on masks, he doesn't like Yoda on the TV but he does like rotisserie chicken, roast beef and spam.

He's good with kids, good judge of character, and gentle to those who he knows are good people. After 3 years of living with Daisey, he's finally able to protect himself and hold his own. No more getting pushed around by little Daisey, now he's doing some pushing of his own.

So Happy Birthday to Milo. Sorry there's no cake for him this year, Mom just wasn't able to make it with the heavy belly, but we did get to go for a nice walk in the neighborhood and I'll be sure to give him that extra cookie...
