A Picture of actual KNITTING!

Woo Hoo finally it's picture worthy. I have to admit I was a little worried that things could go really bad if I had made a mistake somewhere in the knitting and not noticed 'til the end. I really couldn't see how it was going to look until it was completely off the needles. I think I used to be able to figure things like that out. Now my brain is just lazy or tired, (both?). Anyway, I'm boing to put white I cord border around all of it. Hoping I can get it complete and send it this weekend. Spring Forward Cardigan Here I come!

I also need to finish Sparky's hair this weekend. He looks like he has a strange case of mange or that he was attacked by a flowbee. Actually..... if he weren't deathly afraid of the vacuum that might work! But I'd be scared to get ears and tails caught up in it.

I got some wonderful links and advice about how to make the cute beaded stitch markers from the ROAK group. Once I get Jump rings I'll make some and share photos and actual stitch markers.

Ka-Ching, Money saved?

Here is a reminder of what Sparky looks like with long hair. It was actually even longer.....Well, to get him clipped for the summer the going rate around here is $100 or more. Since good clippers cost about that much we bought some and I started to clip him. It takes a bit of time so I didn't finish yet. My poor beautiful doggy! I'm glad he doesn't know the hideous job I'm doing and he is already cooler. He'd started sleeping on the tile in the house and concrete outside exclusively. He's too old of a guy to not have his cushion. The last few days he's been back in comfort and not panting so much. The instructions for the clippers state with practice you get better. I sure hope so.

We also cleaned out our air conditioning unit ourselves saving another $100. I hope whoever put the unit right in the path of the dryer vent at least had second thoughts about the placement of one or the other! We cleaned a bunch of lint and Sparky hair off of the cols. My hubby built a screen box to give it a little more protection.

I only have about 10 more rows on the BSJ! Oh, I can't WAIT to start my Plum Spring Forward Cardigan!!!!!

Today was the last class of the semester for our Music Together Center. I got to lead the whole class. It is a lot of fun and I feel like I'm being challenged quite a bit. Last week Rowena (my director) told me I had to accompany at least one song with an instrument. To say I totally freaked out with stress is an understatement, but I did it and I'm still here. The Summer Songs Semester sarts in 2 weeks. It will be a lot of fun and I'm officially a teacher now.  Posted by Hello
