It's been a while since posting, but we've been in the middle of puppy-dom and furworld. Working on house-breaking and getting Jackson to self-soothe... It's a slow process. My finished Clapotis is headed out to Nana today - I gave her a heads up to expect a package, but didn't tell her there was a handmade gift inside :) I've cast on for Sitcom Chic in Blueberry Cotton Ease. So it's good, really. And the shoreline stitch-and-bitch has been meeting occasionally again! Fun times.

On to the subject of the post -
Caitlyn kindly sent me Weekend Knitting - it's awesome!!! These are just the sort of projects that I need!
Lisa and I swapped, the Loop-d-Loop book for some Lambs Pride yarn - such a delicious color!
Deb sent a new chew toy to Jackson! Thank you so much! Impressive, that he was here less than a week and already getting mail :)

And since we can, here's the little weiner:

Glad to hear that you're doing well! I'm sure that your Nana will love the Clapotis -- it's beautiful. And you're very welcome for the book. Have a great week!

Cute puppy! House breaking can be frustrating, but it really is amazing how quickly they get the idea. Hope Jackson is doing great.

Awww! Jackson is just too cute and your Clapotis is just lovely. I'm now convinced I just have to make one (Clapotis, not puppy)! (-;

Lisa said...

It was fun meeting you last night! I thought I would check out your blog and glad I did. Jackson is adorable! You definitely need to make him something! Hope we can get together again soon.


PS I did not know how to leave comment . . . anonymous was the only way to go.

Really, the toy was from Chappy, but since he has trouble writing out mailing labels, I did it for him. (He offered to TEST the toy first, to make sure it was okay, but I told him that sending used gifts wasn't polite. He grumbled a bit, but agreed.) Have you tried clicker training for the house-training? I absolutely adore clickers for teaching dogs just about anything! I had Katy sitting on cue within three days of her arrival, which just about blew my mind. (Chappy took a little longer, but I'm told that boys sometimes do.) (grin) Hope Jackson is enjoying his toy!
