This morning when I went out to feed Bandit, I discovered he had a new neighbor.  There is a new spinner in the neighborhood!


This work of lace is stretched between the house and one of the tomato plant stakes. ¬†Beautiful work that this lace knitter appreciates. ¬†Talk about cobweb 😉 ¬†Without having searched the ‘net, I’m pretty sure this is one of the billionty types of orb spiders. ¬†Pretty huh?

Further playing with the new lens, I spotted these two cuddled up on the bed when I came back in..


Duchess has stopped losing weight and has even gained back the weight she lost. ¬†The thyroid medication has been working nicely for her. ¬†We reduced her initial dosage and she’s stabilized. ¬†She gets half a pill, twice a day. ¬†We initially ground it up and mixed it with sour cream, but I guess she got bored of that and stopped eating it. ¬†Now we mix with baby food meats, either turkey or chicken. ¬†Totally scarfs it down. ¬†The others get a dab of it in the morning as well. ¬†Speaking of the other…


Yup, no lion cut for her this year! ¬†Yay. ¬†Trying to go for a second year now 😉 ¬†I have to get her over to the groomer for a much needed bath though. ¬†Don’t you just love that underbite?

The folks took the twins to the boat today for the last visit of the year. ¬†I opted to stay home. ¬†There’s a bit of a tummy bug traveling through the house. ¬†My turn came up last night. ¬†Yay 😉 ¬†So I’m spending the day with the last regular game of the season and Rhinebeck. ¬†Here’s how the sweater stands now:


and a loving close up:


Yup. ¬†Love this sweater. ¬†As you can see, I’m finished with the textured bottom of the sweater. ¬†I’m halfway through the plain knitting of the back. ¬†I should be able to finish that up while watching the Sox.

Well, I’m going to do a few things before the 1:35 game so that I can knit and watch guilt free.

Craft on!
