I'm in shock myself, when dh said he wanted this pup, we saw at the Andersons on Saturday. We lost our Siberian Husky/Great Paranees (sp?) about 2 years ago. But we have filled out papers for this cutie. Roscow is a terrier/New Foundland mix. Isn't he sweet??? Tomorrow we have the home inspection. I'm anxious to see when we find out if we can adopt the pup...

Well I am still here and I was hoping to be a lot farther in the MS3 than I am. I got stalled at row 99 as I knit and tinked on 3 different occasions as I thought I had made a mistake and should have more stitches on the needles. Finally I stepped up to the plate and asked for "HELP". The ladies on the group are so "HELPFUL". I didn't have a mistake after all, so now I feel as though I have run out of steam for the day! Maybe tomorrow I can make some real progress....
I'll bet you are all shocked to see me post again this month, (ROFLOL).. Well I have been in the MS3 KAL. I am "WAY" behind, but that is ok! I'm having fun with it, and I feel if I'm not pressured then maybe I'll make fewer mistakes... So I'm posting a picture. I think I'm on row 88 or 89. It's knit in black yarn I had and I think it will be a gift for my "SWEET" daughter inlaw, maybe for Christmas.
Well I finally got around to posting the toe up sock, I completed this morning... Now to cast on its mate! It is such a fun pattern, and I have to say, I was amazed at how the sock developed... I think I might be hooked on the toe up!
