We got a harness for Lady so she could go outside without DP holding her.  It took me a while to figure out how to get it on (we put it on a teddy bear first) but once we put it on her, she was fine with it.  Crazy!  DP clipped the leash on, and they took a walk in the backyard.  She was jumping really high and almost pulling him along!

I'm so happy we have her.  She's just the sweetest, even when she's being bad ;)

I'm still working on the socks I started in January.  For some reason, I just haven't been able to concentrate on knitting.  They're the double heelix socks from Knitty, so after the heel it's just boring stockinette for size 10s...that might explain it.

I really want to finish the cardigan I started two years ago...I just have the halves of the sleeves to go and the sewing up to do.  Again, I just can't seem to concentrate on it.  I want to start another cardigan (or two!) but I will not until I get this thing finished.  Ack!

The snow is so beautiful

I wish today was Friday night so I could stay up all night watching the snow.  It's falling in huge flakes and everything is covered up.  DP took Lady out for her nightly walk, and she was just bouncing through the snow.  She was so sad to come in that DP had to take her back out!

I've said it before, but the snow is so peaceful.  You just feel quiet, watching it.  And DP in the snow with snowflakes on his black hair is lovely.
