Gotta Love the Mailman!!
I got two packages in the mail Monday. The really, really good one was this one here. My order from Webs arrived! Three skeins of Cascade 220 Quatro destined to become warm winter socks. I decided last week that I would learn how to knit socks. Took a trip to Barnes & Nobles and got the book 'Knit Socks!' Ordered the yarn on Friday and I've got socks in progress. Sorry, but I don't have a photo of the WIP because I'm working on them in my office before my work day actually starts. But I'll be sure to post the finished product!
I'm almost finished with my doily for the Crochetville doily swap. I believe Julie said we could make two if we wanted, and I may just do that.
It's Hot in Mississippi and we need rain. (And that five-minute shower we got this afternoon just doesn't count!) How's your weather?

"Help Me! Someone please help me! Just because I may have put on a few extra pounds over the winter, the woman thinks I'm fat. It was bad enough that she brought home that food for 'overweight dogs' . It got worse when the man stopped feeding me lots of treats during the day. Now, she is making me wear this harness and leash and is taking me OUTSIDE for L-O-N-G walks through the neighborhood where everyone sees me. Oh, the shame of it all. I would much rather stay laid up in the house under the air-conditioner. Someone have pity on me, please!"
Poor, poor Lady dog. We got her a couple of years ago at PetSmart. She's a lab mix, and is a bit timid. She's unsure about people on bikes, she's unsure about people on roller-blades, she's unsure about children playing scoccer in yards. Walking this dog is an experience, because she is just so unsure about so many things. She's also not big on having her picture taken which is why I have this other photo. Yes, that is a roll of fat on the dog's backside. And is the reason we go walking twice a week.
So, How Has Your Day Been?

Let's post a picture!!
Yeah me!! I managed to get pictures posted! I'm so excited!
Poncho above is a stash-buster project and I love it. I came across a cone of Lily's white cotton, that I had probably picked up to make potholders with, and thought Poncho!! The pattern is an adaption of one in the Annie's Attic booklet Poncho panache! It's perfect for a Mississippi summer.
