And A Little Of That
Let's start off with the latest completed hat.
I knit this one at a slightly looser gauge, doing the ribbing on size 7 needles and the body on size 8. I figured somebody over there might have a big head, and will need a big hat. And yes, the next hat is already cast on...
I got a nice little note from my Blue Star Moms contact this morning. She said that the stuff I'd sent last time had been received by those in the sandbox, and was appreciated. I'm glad to know they got it. I'm hoping to get a bunch more stuff out soon. Oh, and I found my Print Shop program, so I can make little tags to go on the hats.
Well, I got home from work this evening and Rylea had had another accident in the living room. I can't really blame her. It's been too hot to walk her, and her circadian rhythms have been thrown off. Usually she's pretty good about holding it, but sometimes it just catches up with her, and she can't help it. But it provided the impetus I needed.
I'd been wanting to buy my own shampooer. I'd even picked out the model I wanted, but Wal-mart didn't have any in stock. I waited and waited, and they never got any in. So, in light of today's doggie doo doo, I went and got the next best thing. I got the Bissell Pro Heat Pet shampooer. It may not have been my first choice, but it sure did a number on my carpet.
I got the hall, the cat's room, and about half the living room done. As you can see, it made an obvious difference. Yeah, you can tell where I stopped.
I was shocked, SHOCKED I tell you, at how much dog hair I got out of my supposedly clean carpet. I mean, I'd just vacuumed --twice in the same week, even-- and still got an almost frightening amount of dog hair out. I figure I'll finish this weekend. It'll give me something to do.
My friend Jan always posts what she is blogging to, be it music, an audiobook, or a quiet house. Well, tonight you get the pleasure of sharing what I am blogging to, and it is this:
And finally, this is my beloved son, in whom I am well pleased --or a little frightened by...
I jus' don' know 'bout that boy...
