We went outdoors one last time tonight before the light failed.  Someone has ants-in-his-pants and just NEEDS to be in the fresh air and emerging grass where he can roll over onto his back and kick and kick.  Of course, by the time I found the camera that hilarity was lost.  
We've got some disciplinary issues that need attention.  He thinks that he's the boss of me.  I'm going to have to tune him up, but that would require my full attention, which has turned to the Hand Maiden Seasilk (thanks, Maria)...
This fiber is seriously addictive.  
Long before bathing and blocking this fiber's character blooms - with a promise of what is to come.  I love knitting lace for that very reason - it almost ALWAYS delivers the goods - morphing from huh?  To aaahhhhh ... 
 We walked around in the fading light and noticed the garlic tips, the emerging alliums, the greening leeks.  It was a tremendously cruel winter and the grapes took a heavy hit.  I'd love to show you these images, but this bloody useless BLOGGER has decided to reject the server and insert some kind of error.  I am so very close to shutting this blog down.  I think that I'll go audition WordPress again.

I hear you about Blogger. It can sure work your last nerve! I need to check out Seasilk--that shawl looks yummy!

My Sophie told me to remind you that dogs ARE the boss of us. Ruff!

Hi there, my name is Delisa and I live in Georgia. I came across your blog over at the Apifera site's comment section. You do beautiful knitting! I love to knit lace too and I'm working on a scarf right now with a "tulip" lace pattern. I have about 10 inches left to go and I'm getting forward to the blocking stage as well. I have a 6 year old golden named Barkley. He is my joy and my dearest animal friend. He is about 95% obedient, but there is that 5% that is just plain mischievious! (He dug a giant hole out in the yard this morning. But like I told my husband: "If I was a dog, and it was spring time and the dirt smelled of herbs and sweet grasses, I would dig a hole too!" :) You have a very nice blog, and I hope you have a lovely day! Delisa

How come all these people find your blog and no one ever finds mine? I feel so rejected. I see I am not on your Blog List. Hmmm

Dogs are our best friend. And they are quick to remind us every moment who is the in control. Thank god they can't actually talk. There would be no shutting them up - eh!

Your shawl should be arriving any moment. Did you get my box?
