Although I haven’t been knitting as much as I would like to be (I’m lucky if I get 15 minutes to knit a day), I am picking up the needles more often than not and am slowly (and I do mean SLOWLY) but surely making my way through a Color Affection shawl.

Color Affection - WIP

So many people have already knit this shawl that I don’t feel like I need to comment on how easy it is, how lovely it is and what a great knit it is. I’ll just say that I love the colors I chose (I’m envisioning wearing this on a crisp Fall day) and knitting with Fiberphile is, as usual, just dreamy. I’m hoping that I can finish this one sooner rather than later, but I won’t hold my breath on that one!

It’s difficult to find the time to knit when a certain baby in the house decides that taking naps longer than 30 minutes is just not her style and that taking just three 30 minute naps ALL DAY is enough for her, thank you very much. Amazingly enough she wasn’t in a horrible mood either, so we had fun sitting on the couch talking, eating our hands (ok, ok, I didn’t eat my hands) and hanging out with the puppies.

The poor girl is teething, so I think she’s enjoying seeing how much of her hand she can shove in her mouth at once – thankfully the answer is not that much!

Hitchcock wasn’t too interested in taking pictures today (and who can blame him when his face is such a mess and I really need to take a comb to him… the poor dog was embarrassed! Please don’t judge me for not grooming my dogs as often as I should!), but Kubrick was more than happy to hang out next to his little sister and look at the camera for a second or two… that dog really has no shame! πŸ˜‰

  1. She is such a cutie and smiles even tho teething. Try freezing a big carrot for her to ‘chew’ on. Frozen things really help the gums feel better.

  2. She is such a cutie pie! Love those pictures. Your Color Affection is looking gorgeous. Such beautiful colors! It is a great project for when you only have a few minutes here and there to knit. My son was a sporadic napper, too.

  3. Your shawl is so pretty :-) I can totally relate because I am not getting much knitting done either with my son. He is drooling everywhere so we think he is teething too. We will be knitting again soon enough πŸ˜‰
