I don’t have a photograph, but you can have my footprints. They’re upstairs in my socks. ~ Groucho Marx

It’s nearly May and I finally have my first FO of the year:

Cloth #1

What: Dish/washcloth for Warm The World

Yarn: Bernat Cottontots in Strawberry and Blue Berry (well less than 1/2 skein of each)
Needles: size 7, Knit Picks Options
Pattern: Ballband

Date started: 4/12/08

Date finished: 4/19/08
Lesson Learned: I don’t hate this pattern as much as I used to

Destination: Warm The World

I have a second cloth on the needles, but haven’t photographed it. I’m also narrowing down a pattern for a new blanket and will hopefully cast that on in the next couple of days.

Yesterday was the monthly meeting of Warm The World and my drive took me right by the location of the Ft. Carson fire (for non local readers: the fire burned nearly 10,000 acres last week and took the life of a pilot who was helping to fight the fire).

I’ve only had Sadie for three weeks, but it feels like she’s been here forever. Her continued obsession with food (both mine and hers) has caused some changes in my kitchen.

The dog bones are now secured with a bungee cord (note the teeth marks on the container):

And, the dog food is locked:

Sadie has developed a sweet affection for Kishka:
