You may be saying to yourself - Hey, I thought this was a knitting blog what up with this gigantic fish? Andy and I went fishing yesterday morning and he caught this 8lb large mouth bass and two others that were around 3 lbs. It's the largest bass Ive seen in person and it was quite exciting to see Andy bring him in the boat!
You may remember back in July that my in-laws had adopted two boxer cross puppies. We stopped by to visit on the way home from fishing. I thought you might enjoy seeing how much Bo had grown since July. He's now 6 months old, almost as tall as me (Im 5' 8"), and we think around 70 lbs. He's just the sweetest guy and loves to give kisses.
Last Friday I arranged for our knit group to take a field trip to Wyrd Sisters in Roanoke. Cate, the owner, is so much fun and truly a wonderful person. Her shop has some great yarns and fibers including Unplanned Peacock which is a local company. I came home with a skein of Diva Sock which is a merino/cashmere/nylon blend and a braid of merino roving - yum!
This is Cate in a stunning vest that she knitted:
