Jack's straight jacket

Ok, so the sweater did not turn out well. I put it on him and he couldn't walk in it!! He would try to run around and he would just fall over. I am a mean mommy and I left it on just to laugh at him. I decided that I am going to buy him a sweater instead. Hopefully I will have it perfected before it gets cold here. I do have until January and then it might be cold for like a week!! I am just kidding, but it is practically true. I am making him a little scarf out of the yarn and the sweater I am getting him is a cable knitt in off white, so it will go very well. Ricky said that he is going to look like a preppy college boy. He is even considering buying him a couple of rugby shirts. I know, we are pathetic. I laugh at people who dress up their animals, but here I am doing it myself!!! It started out for a practical reason. Jack gets cold when I walk him in the morning and it is 71 degress outside!!! I can't wait to post the scarf. I will also put a picture of the sweater, but it is going in the frogging pile!!!

I have been shopping for my needle exchange pal. Tee hee!! She is going to be so happy!!!!

Jack's sweater

I have started knitting a sweater for my dog Jack. I am using Lion Brand Wool Ease in Wood 232. Jack is going to look so cute!!! I am about half way finished with it. I might be able to get my parents to take a picture of it so I can post it. We also got Jack a football jersey! It is red, white and black. Those are the colors of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette which is the college in our town. He looks so cute!!!!! Because he is small, he would probably be a kicker!!!

Moving!!!

The reason I have been so busy lately is that I am moving on October 6th. I am excited, but it is a lot of work. The other reason is I had to drop out of school. Yes, I have now dropped out of college twice! This time the government didn't want to give me enough money to go to school b/c I am under 24 and they think my parents should pay. I tried to get private loans, but I couldn't. It doesn't matter anyway b/c the way my school is set up, I will be a dependent next year too. Since I dropped out, I will be enrolling as an independent and everything will work out. I will enroll again next year after I turn 24 and I will be ok. I am just going to be delayed a year, so it isn't a big deal. At least I want to go back!!!!

I haven't had time to knitt or sew b/c of this and b/c of moving. My boyfriend won't let me buy anymore yarn or fabric until after we move, but that is only 3 weeks and I still get to buy stuff for the needle exchange. I still can't find my camera, so I won't have any pictures until I do. I have a feeling that I will find it on the day I move somewhere behind the couch!!!!

Needle Exchange

I am so sorry that I haven't posted my answers to the questionaire yet. I've been a little busy, but that is no excuse. I really want to be surprised. I am so new to knitting that I don't really know what I want yet. I only own 2 sets of needles right now, 10.5 and 13 both bamboo. I am still exploring all of the different types of yarn that is available and I haven't run into any that I don't like. I am very excited about this and I can't wait! I hope my needle pal likes to be spoiled b/c I am known for spoiling people!!!!!!
