Hello all. Wow, what a busy time of year for us. The past few weekends have been so busy with visitors, sick dogs, daycare issues.... and they only keep coming. This past weekend was amazing. Suzanne from MS came up to visit. I love Suzanne like a sister! She is just so outgoing, honest, sweet and good hearted. We also go to meet her husband, Braxton! Both of them treated us to a night out at a hockey game. It was so much fun!
I know I should be knitting baby blankets but I took a break and started something new. I promised Suzanne I would make her a pair of socks. The Sexy Knitter, was giving away patterns last week and I was able to get my hands on the pattern called Serleena. So far, I have started the cuff but I love the pattern. I have always had ribbed cuffs for socks and this one has a twist to the ribbing pattern which I adore. The yarn Suzanne picked out is Claudia Hand Painted Yarn in the Ingrids Blues colorway.

I love knitting, even more so now. Sitting in the lobby of the animal hospital, I find myself knitting like crazy waiting for the vet to tell us what is causing our dog to be so sick. Basically, Ballack had a swollen neck mid February. We took him to our vet and they put him on antibiotics because they thought he had an infection somewhere. Within days he seemed better, not 100% but definitely better. After the antibiotics were done, within hours he got worse. We did some tests that still support an infection or a foreign object stuck in his throat. So now we are sitting anxiously waiting to hear the results of a ct scan. I am knitting to pass the time. My husband is watching tv.
