School's starting LATE....

because we had to take Snips from the hospital to our vet. He's keeping her until 4:30 for observation. She had 1 more seizure last night; they loaded her with phenobarbital and Valium. She'll be on pills the rest of her life (poor thing!)

She's groggy, but alive. Our vet said she should recover most - if not all - of her vision. We have to keep a close eye on her - the other dogs might jump on her, and we don't want that. :Sigh: and :praise:, because she's alive.

Anyway - photos maybe tomorrow.....we'll see.

Pictures!

OK, let's do pictures. I can do pictures.....:lol:

First up, the SpillyJane Owl Mitts:

Owl Mitts finished

Fun, well-written pattern. And Cute!

The Alef-Tav mitts:

LOVE these - so fast to knit! I think there'll be another pair or 2 of these in my future.....:grin:

And....my current project: SpillyJane's "Prickly Thistles" mittens:



I'm making a few changes to these - for one thing, I'm converting them to fingerless mitts. I'm in Texas - we don't NEED mittens, but my wrists do need warmth. I LOVE this pattern - so I figure, I can fiddle with it and make it fingerless. And change the thumb to a gusseted one instead of an afterthought one. :fingers crossed:

Granted, I have a few other projects that I should be working on...but they're mindless. Right now? I need something that requires concentration. This? Isn't *difficult*, but it does require thinking. And I need that right now......

Anyway - this is a few hours worth of knitting; I started them last night and I've been working on them off and on today. No rush - but necessary right now.

So. We go pick up Snips at 4:30 today. She gets to stay locked in the bedroom if we're not here to supervise - but at least she's alive. I can deal with whatever we need to deal with, y'know?

Back to the needles......
