Decisions and Spinning

Like most girls her age, Kaity often says, "When I grow up, I'm going to be a ______". So far we have Veterinarian, Pastry Chef, and the obligatory Rock Star! Sometimes I tease her and ask, "What, not a DOULA?" She rolls her eyes and tells me "That's disgusting Mom!"

This week's profession de jour is Dog Groomer. She has been practicing with the family dogs, no scissors yet, just baths and brushes. Here she is with Sarah's dog Kiwi.

I've been spinning more than knitting lately. This is one of the skeins I sent to my One Skein Secret Pal. It's from Rose's Rainbows in Northwood's Greens colorway. I don't usually choose green colorways, but I like this because of all the range from yellow green to deep forest green.

I think this would make some nice socks.

I cast on with some Wool of the Andes for Elizabeth Zimmermann Moccasin socks. It will keep my hands busy tomorrow in physisican waiting rooms. Benny is seeing a specialist about his hand. His thumb is still paralyzed and he feels like it's going further up his hand.

Angi, I hope yesterday brought you some good news (and answers). I'm keeping you in my thoughts.

Tell Kaity that she can come to my house and groom our dog. It is a goldendoodle and is huge.
Think 70+ pounds with curly hair.

Hope and pray for Benny to be wrong about his hand and that it is repairable.
