Trying to Move On

Today is one week since Theo passed on...I have been slogging my way through life this past week trying to get on with it...I still can't bring myself to pick up the cookie crumbs he left behind on the floor or vacuum the carpet because the little paw print indents will be gone forever.
He was sent down to Monterey to be cremated and I guess he will be back sometime this week in a little urn. It will be hard to go into the vets to pick him up when he arrives.

A big Thank You to all of you for your warm thoughts. It is so hard to lose your best friend. Knitting helps a lot. Seems that is all I can productively do these days.

I am still working on the Flutter Sleeve Cardi, actually almost finished with it. I have the last sleeve cuff and sewing the side seam up and attaching the buttons left to do. I got a little side tracked on Sunday when I went to Marin Fiber Arts grand reopening...I looked at all the lovely new yarns and played on the spinning wheel (they were having spinning demos) I know how to spin, not particularly my most favorite fibery aspect of all things fiber - hurts my back too much, anyway it was fun to spin on a different wheel than mine. I got into a little trouble, I purchased 4 skeins of this lovely 3 ply merino - (actually sock) yarn but I am making shawls with it.
I started Amy R. Singer's Tuscany shawl from No Sheep for You...what a fun, and fast pattern. I started this yesterday and I can't seem to put it down.

Posted by PicasaI have my own little Tuscany right here on my porch!!! Really no replacement for Italy but a close second!

We cremated our German Shephard and it brings comfort to know he's not in some cold dark place but at home with his family. The Marin Fair sounds like a fun place to visit. Your patio looks very inviting - perfect for a glass of wine and knitting!
