ARIES: APRIL 10, 2000 - MAY 8, 2013
I lost my best buddy suddenly yesterday evening. She was loving, loyal, trustworthy, funny and one of the loves of my life. I'm going to miss her dreadfully and a little piece of my heart has gone with her...but, I'm glad to share it, just like she shared hers. RIP, my BoBerries. I will always love you to bits and pieces.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

I knit and finished a project. It's a small project, but was enjoyable. Gives me a little niggle to knit more. I don't want to speak too soon, but perhaps it's the end of my slump. Maybe... This was knit for my sister, as per her request. The wee beggar better like it. :D

A New Addition

A new tyrannical kitty to help keep my yarn tangled and my needles chewed.

My daughter named her Miku. My dog on the other hand has a few inventive nicknames for her, I'm sure. ;)

In knitting news...I pulled a Yarn Harlot. Who'd a thunk that measuring to 16-1/2" would be so difficult? Obviously, my tape measure is broken, because my notes were correct. Doesn't change the fact that I had to rip out half of the back to my textured cardigan, knit the extra two inches. Too bad I didn't make the same measuring error on the left one would have be any the wiser and I'd be knitting the right front as I type. I'm sure with the new kitten, I won't have anymore such distractions.


Knit on...

My camera is pooh. Pooched. Bit the dust. Has gone to the great lens in the sky. :( So, until I get a new with a flash, macro and zoom and all those other nifty things a camera does that we take for granted, you will all be subjected to crappy pic's taken by the camera on my iPod Touch. I'd apologize, but shit happens. :P

Knitting update with crappy pic follows.

So, I finally finished the back of the Textured Cardigan(Rav link).

There is a lot of knitting and bobbles on that back. I'm making the medium/large 50" size, so you can just imagine.

The front is much easier on the bobbles with the added excitement of pockets.

Ohhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhh!

I want this finished. It's perfect weather for wearing, like, NOW! At least knitting needles don't pooch unless I do...
