sensing a theme.

“Boh wants to go shopping.” (Clearly. Because he’s wearing a hat, a scarf, a down vest, and has a canvas tote bag on his arm.) I don’t think Boh would tolerate this from me, but he really likes the boy. And so, as you can see here, yesterday he got ready to go shopping.

It is so hard to be a big dog.

Oh, right. Some knitting! After finishing yesterday’s book, I realized that I really should cast on the pinwheel blanket I am planning to give my cousin on the occasion of her wedding, which is in a few weeks. I’m using Cascade 220 and size 7 needles. (Note to self: dedicate some time to citron, too!) I watched the pilot of Arrested Development (how have I not seen this show?) and listened to a few podcasts, and miraculously the fiddly mess that is this pattern in its earliest stages began to look like a real pinwheel. It took three tries for me to get this started — I’m not sure joining 5 stitches in the round will ever get easier!

Boh and I have plans for a woodsy walk with his best friend (and one of mine) later in the day. Happy Friday!

  1. Boh was clearly wearing a shopping outfit. He must really love the boy to let that happen :)

  2. Ha! Ah, Boh. What a good sport. And the way he is cuddling up is so darn cute.

    Cascade 220 never ceases to amaze me. I think of it as just a default workhorse yarn, but then I see pictures like the one above and am reminded how beautiful and squishy it is. That’s going to be a really nice pinwheel, I can tell.

    Happy Friday to you, too!

  3. Boh is sooo tolerant, it’s obvious how much he loves you :) My brown dog, Jack is the same way. So sweet. Happy Friday to you and always happy knitting! Looking forward to seeing your finished project.

  4. Mr. Boh, methinks you’re a good sport. (With an eye for a bargain!) Why do I think he needs one of those wire carts to wheel along behind him?

    The pinwheel will be awesome! Can’t wait to see more. Those fiddly cast-ons are the worst.

    Also, the buried lead: you’ve not yet watched Arrested Development?! I’m so glad this is being taken care of. Seriously. C’mon!
