A bit of knitting

Even though I haven't been posting a lot lately I have been keeping busy. Of course knitting with an 18 pound dog napping on your lap can add an extra challenge to the process. Have to hold my hands up high than usual to avoid poking said dog with the needles. A pair of socks for me . . . .

Cute pictue of your dog sitting on your lap while you are knitting. That is something that my dog would do...I have a dachshund who is around 18 pounds. Her idea of helping me while I'm knitting would be sitting on my lap snoring.

Hey Dawn! You would be right at home --spinning with a rabbit on your lap!

Hi Kari & Cyndy -

Dream snores while on my lap. Do the rabbits snore? {g} The yarn for my socks is Patons Decor 75% Acrylic 25% Wool in First Spring Ombre.

Hi Cathy - No, you're not the only one who does handwork with a dog on your lap. The photo was taken by Heather with my little Kodak digital and I 'doctored' it up by 'cartooning' the photo with my Kodak EasyShare program.

Lily sometimes sits beside me on the couch and gets her front end in my lap. That's all that will fit. I do the same thing, with holding my work way up to keep from disturbing her! Love the socks!

Rabbits grunt sometimes, but I never caught one snoring. Lily snores a lot!

Ah hah - now I know what you look like...lol. It's nice to know it isn't only me who contends with an animal on my lap while crafting.

I do love the look of your socks. I'm still tempted (the first disaster hasn't quite put me off) but might wait until the knitting guru (mum) comes home before attempting more. Can you recommend a good basic pattern.
