An Ending and a New Beginning

Tomorrow is the last day of the American Girl online club. If we had a flag, Kaity would insist it be respectfully lowered to half-mast.

On a happy note, Viki has introduced us to Artist Trading Cards. I hadn't heard of them before. We are planning to incorporate them into our Art classes this year.

It seems like school begins earlier each year. I ease us into it, rather than beginning full force. Kaity is learning about the nutrition of and caring for her puppy as part of science.

So far house training mostly consists of Kaity taking Gabby out, putting her down and then both Kaity and Khi chasing her until until someone finally catches her! The puppy is 8 weeks old. It's like keeping ahead of a toddler. She's having a blast!


In knitting news, I finished the body of Kaity's Caitlin Cardigan this morning. I hope to only be on Sleeve Island for a week or so. I have a new hooded cardigan awaiting a zipper for Khi, and finished sleeves to attach to Benny's new cardigan. I hope to have my Meg Swansen Lupine for fall. I ended up ordering the book and the DVD. If you want to knit this and plan to buy the DVD, don't bother with the book. The pattern is inside the DVD case. The book is nice but I only got it for the Lupine.
