still plugging away...

Well, not a lot to report, even though there is a lot going on. Life keeps getting in the way of my finishing my dyeing and the website, but I HAVE GOT TO GET IT DONE SOON. ARG! No chances of that this weekend tho. Here is a rundown on what "needs" to be done first...
1) Finish the Big Ball Sweater -- I am sooooo close! I had to rip back the neck decreases, tho, as I mis-interpretted the directions and wasn't decreasing fast enough. It is coming out pretty snug, but i am hoping Blocking will remedy that. My intent is to finish knitting tonight, block and sew the zipper tomorrow, so I can debut it on Easter. CROSS YOU FINGERS!
2) a new project, out of necessity. Now I am not one for sweaters on dogs -- not into the fru-fru thing, BUT my poor muppet is getting matted and picking up burrs like crazy, so she is going to get shaved down on Sunday am, and since it is still pretty cold in these parts I am going to knit her this...

Is it not the coolest??? It is going to be black w/ a fushia skull. MUST. KNIT. FOR. SUNDAY. So the needles are flying for that.
3) We might be fostering one or two dogs (omg -- I am crazy, aren't I???) who were scheduled to be put down on Monday (Nichole, you suck...lmao), which means I Have to clean and organize this house!!!! AHHHHHH. This desperately needs to be done anyway, but with the possible addition of two more animals, well, omg...the mind boggles.
So that's all! A few more things on the needles, but no urgency, and I hope to be back to regularly scheduled work next week.

OMG - love the cute sweater! Are you using the Bernat Satin yarn?
Btw, when you link to me you have to include the www or else it doesn't seem to work... :/ Something with the forwarding from blogger I think??

I thought my sweater was going to be snug too, but after blocking, it was perfect. I'm sure your's will be too.

I love the doggie sweater; can't wait to see it.

You are NOT crazy to foster a couple dogs who would otherwise be put down; you are WONDERFUL!
