Eli's sweater & a houseguest .

It's been a busy week what with one thing and another , but then that's nothing new .You'd think I was working for heaven's sake ! Thanks to the trifecta of rainy weather , US Open tennis and a really cr***y head cold , a good deal of progress has been made on my little red cardi for Eli . The knitting was pretty much done last week and then the procrastination began for the finishing . I really , really  hate this last part , mostly because I think I suck at it , to put it not so nicely . Though I think I'm becoming better at it with more practice . Left to do here is the collar and seaming the sides and sleeves . Then another search for buttons . With a bit of determination it should be finished any time now .


Last Wednesday we received an unexpected house guest . This little poochie needed a home while his owner is recuperating from a fall that ended up with her breaking a both arms . She's a senior who lives alone , and obviously can't manage to care for herself with both arms in a cast . It was going to cost her a fortune to board him , so Mike and I offered to take him for the duration . He's a really sweet little guy who gets along really well with our Bingo . The cats , however , are still giving us the stink eye . They were not happy campers when he arrived and avoid him as much as possible . Not hard to do when you sleep most of the day ...

That's it for today , be back next time with what's new on the needles . Have a good rest of the day ...

Hopefully the cats get over the stink eye quickly ;) they've got a long way to go with the little fella.

It's hard to say no to a house guest that cute!

What a sweet little houseguest. It is nice of you to take him in.

I'm sure his real mom will miss him a lot. Hope she heals up quickly.

Gorgeous, gorgeous red cardigan - looks like you're almost done!

Is your new friend a shitsu? He looks adorable. BTW, whe Mom broke her arm she found a halloween bucket handy for carting things back and forth while containing spills.

Oh my goodness, I could kiss his little face on the screen. He's adorable. I hope his owner recovers well and as soon as she could.
