Green Cherry Fizz? Yum!

I have been making progress on all my current WIPs and finally have a picture to share of my Green Cherry Fizz. It’s turning out quite lovely, though I’m sure a good blocking will make it even more so. It’s a quick knit as far as time goes, but it’s very complicated with lots of different stitches (I learned a new one too!) and really requires all your concentration – much like Twisted Flower. I’m currently going back and forth between the two with the Monkeys to give me a break from all the concentrating!

Green Cherry Fizz - WIP

Green Cherry Fizz - WIP

I’m going on a trip to California on Thursday for a bachelorette party (I’m the maid – matron? – of honor so I get to throw it) and will have lots of plane time to knit. Maybe I’ll get a big chunk of these done! Here’s to hoping. 🙂

I’ve also been busy the last couple of days dogsitting! I do believe that Guapo made an appearance on this blog once before as he is here once a week (on Mondays) for some doggy company while we humans work. His owners have decided to take their first solo trip (sans Guapo) since they got him a year ago and they have left him with us. So, I’ve been seeing the joys (and the horrors) of having three dogs. I can safely say that there’s no way we’ll ever go there… two seems to be just right for us! But the pups have been loving having a third dog around. I’ve noticed that when one wants to play and the other doesn’t, there’s always a third one around to pick on, which seems to work for them! The three really are having a grand ole time together, and I’m sure they will miss Guapo when he’s back to coming over only once a week. Here are some of my favorite pictures of these three maniacs together:

Bitey Face - F is for Fierce

Wild Hair

You Can't Get Me!

Yes, you saw that right – Hitchcock is under the table playing with the two, LOL.

If I've Told You Once...

Flash of Teeth

I swear it’s not all just teeth, though… they can look sweet too!

So Cute

Tired Out

Crazy Hair

Kubrick’s hair in that last one cracks me up! He needs a bang trim and so he looks even more nuts after a good play session.

Also, thanks to Kathy for the blog award! I’ve gotten this one already but have yet to actually write it out… I’ll probably do it later this week. 🙂

    Green cherries! Looks fabulous, and the dogs, as always, are adorable. Enjoy your plane knitting.

    I love the juxtapose between “toothy smiles, flying fur” and the “perfectly proper.”
    Kubrick, the slightly disheveled look suits you, too 😉
    Gorgeous yarn and gorgeous project— here’s to uninterrupted knitting time. Have a great time in Cali!
