Coding with attitude
My dye project is drying, but I can't tell yet whether it came out alright or not. I haven't tried more than one color very often yet, and this was my first time using my shiny new Jacquard dyes. So, this skein was quite experimental. I didn't try any crazy patterns on the yarn, just big blocks of color. As of right now, I can see there must have been air bubbles somewhere (arrrg, I tried so hard to get them out!!!) because the colors didn't bleed into some white spaces. I'll know how it came out when I wind it into a ball, and I'll post pictures!

I also finished 3 of the things I'm putting in the kit for Olive! I plan to make my way to Diagon Alley today to shop for supplies to make a DIY yarn swift, and I found a ball winder on sale today from a shop nearby.

Lavender asked if I would show some pictures of my dog that ate the chocolate, so I figured - hey, might as well show the whole zoo, yeah? Click on the pictures for a bigger image.

Suzie aka Suzapalooza, is our newest addition. I work for a local animal rescue group, and she was one of our cats at the shelter that didn't really have a chance at being adopted since she's nearly 14. Then there's Maggie (my sheltie-shepherd pup) and Jada (my sister's morkie). Both are 10 months old, soon to be 11 months. And then, of course, there is my 9 year old Spice aka GirlyGirl. I rescued her from a farm when I was in fifth grade.

Jada actually doesn't look much like that anymore, but I don't have very many pictures of her on this computer. And that's a picture of Maggie when she was five months old, but I love it so much! She's a good model.

I went through all of the trouble to find this kick ass layout, and now it seems I'll have to make my own or spend hours finding the next perfect layout. :( All because this template doesn't have the code for previous entries, and I can't find the proper code to make that link happen. Hah, take that blogger! I changed the post settings so now I don't even need a previous entries link.
