It Is Finished!

No, not my sweater.... but tax season! (Well, technically it is over the 15th, but I don't have to go to work Monday or Tuesday so I am done for this year!) It was an intense season and nice to have wrapped up.

Now back to my knitting..... I have made some more progress on the front of my sweater. I think you can start to see the cabling up the center. I am really liking it! And with the snow we got yet again today, I may still very well be able to wear it next month!














Yesterday was R's birthday. We waited until today to celebrate and headed down to Cedar Rapids for an afternoon of bowling and an early supper. A & K drove in from college and joined us. (M's parents drove in as well and joined us for dinner). It was a fun time. We are extremely blessed parents is all I can say!!!





Bowling was a big part of R's birthday gift as well as he received a certificate for a new bowling ball as well as a retro bowling ball bag. He also got a Vikings hooded sweatshirt and T-shirt from M's parents. This is quite the gift considering how big a Bears fan as her dad is!!







Sumo spent the day in the dog house in more ways than one. Yes, here is my not-so-sweet smelling dog after deciding to roll in something very disgusting! It is times like this when he becomes Steve's dog! What is it that is so appealing to dogs about rolling in such things? I don't get it. Nothing a sudsy bath with a garden hose won't take care of.





Well, off to cast on another Lucy bag. I need to have one in pre-felting form for a couple of talks on knitting I've been asked to give in the next few weeks. (To show the before and after stages).

Hope you all have your taxes filled out and filed.

Until Next Time.....

Congrats on tax season being over. I am still afraid to knit an adult sweater. I am working on one for Emily though. Is there any spinning in the future?? I got in a few hours today.

I love the sweater! The yarn looks so yummy!!

Happy Birthday R!

Congrats on Tax Season being over for you! Now for some big time knitting right??

Hmmmm Sumo, I personally thinks he planned it, he figures this way he gets a nice bath, and then some snuggles and hugs... awwwww poor Sumo, his little cup still feels empty...

I look forward to more fun posts now that you are a free woman!!

Your sweater looks like it will be very pretty when it's done. I love cables and the yarn color looks so rich. Sadly, I think my days of wearing sweaters are gone for at least seven months. We hit ninety today. Yuck!

I thought of you today because my husband did our taxes. My least favorite day of the year. At least we didn't have any surprises this year like the $2200 bill we owed last year!

Congrats on making it through the end of tax time! Sumo and Max definitely have something in common with the rolling in stinky stuff. Ugh!!
The sweater is coming along nicely!!
I love the tweedy color of the yarn.

love your blog, this is the first time I've left a message but I've been watching your blog for a while via Loopy. I too have a yellow lab, well 2, and yes they show me sometimes that they are my furry stinky children too. It must be something in the air with spring as my female dog came in today covered with dirt after rolling in someting. Love your blog!!!
