Don't you love it...

...when this:

becomes this:

The yarn is Malabrigo Rios and I love the Glazed Carrot color so much that I am thinking of knitting a vest for myself in it.  I've wanted an orange vest for some time now, and this might just do the trick.  What I've been wanting is an orange puffer vest, but I think a lovely v-neck in this would actually be better than that.  However, my yarn budget has been blown for this month, so I must wait until next month and hope that my yarn store still has about five skeins of this amazing color left for me.

Trying this again

Goal: going forward, to update blog with some any frequency.  So, to start, I finish with a gratuitous cute picture of a little fluffy dog.
This is Fred, sitting on a table.  I'm not sure when this became acceptable behavior in the house, but this isn't the first time he's done it.  It isn't even the first picture I have of it.  And Fred isn't even the only dog who does it (although he is the only dog who does it on this particular table--right next to the yarn.  After his Peep's heart, I tell you.)  But here it is, Fred on a table.
