Maggie May

Maggie2283


We have a new addition to the family. Her name is Maggie and she is a handful! I like calling her Maggie May. She is a very loving puppy and loves to be held, but she is a puppy and has lots of energy. We have her about a week now and she keeps me hopping. She's a cutie though. I usually like a black dog only, but I love the white that she has on her. I'm just hoping she remains a healthy pet for a long time.

I haven't had much time for knitting since we got her, but I did finally finish some projects:

There are the fetching gloves:

Fetching Gloves


I also completed a dishcloth from the Monthly dishcloth group. It was the pattern from the beginning of February.

And I finished off the snuggly baby blanket I was making:

I have a few things on the needles, but I am waiting for some yarn I ordered from Blue Mountain Fibers (Socks that Rock). I plan on knitting the Chevron scarf that is making it's way around the blogging world from the book Last Minute Knitted Gifts.

I also joined a bookmark knit-a-long group that is on yahoo. Since I love to read and knit, I thought it was a perfect fit. I recently finished the new Barbara Delinsky book, Family Tree. I really enjoyed the book, but then again, I love all of Barbara's books.

Speaking of books, there are a lot of new knitting books coming out. I am anxiously awaiting their arrival as I am sure I won't resist the urge to get them.

Well, I'm back to blogging. Now I just have to get back to knitting.

We should start a group for dogs named Maggie May. Our labrador is called Maggie May or Margaret May when she has done something naughty. Her photo album is over at: http://flickr.com/photos/ari_elle/sets/19956/, she's a bit spoiled. Your Maggie May is too adorable, such a face.

I love your work. I think the fetching gloves are really great. It's a good idea for a present. Actually, I'm just getting into knitting but I'm becoming an addict. I found an interesting web-site www.kokobino.com where I've there are really nice knitting kits with original patterns. Sometimes they have discounts on the web-site.
