I know! I mean, don't get me wrong, I have been knitting...I just haven't bothered to take any pictures yet, and well, I don't like to talk about my knitting unless I have some pics to back up all my fibertalk...so, suckage on that. However, I did feel the need to come on here and announce that I now have a new family member to knit for! :)
Yes, that's right, her name is Beeba. She's five years old, and weighs just under five pounds and she's just about the cutest little snuggle bug ever! Me and the DW adopted her from a family that just felt they couldn't pay her the amount of attention she deserved any more, and let me just say that she's just about the most beautiful gift I could ever recieve. Although, getting her to sit still for a decent picture is nearly impossible...I managed a couple of them.
I was told that Beeba was named by her former owner's then two year old son, and we decided that the name suited her so we kept it. She's a minpin/chihuahua(EDIT: Actually, I don't think she's minpin...I'm pretty sure she's mini doxie/chihuahua...yeah, definitely.) crossbreed, and as a result of that mix is always, always cold and shivering so I really need to either find or come up with a couple of doggie sweater patterns that can accomodate a dog that's on the extra small side of small. Also, as I found out yesterday, she's a burrower and is perfectly content to snuggle way down underneath the blankets and curl up by my or my wife's legs. She's adorable, and we love her, and even when she's stepping in circles around our faces to wake us up so she can have food we just can't get aggravated with her. It's kind of a pain in the ass actually, because I'm sure she knows we're suckers. All she has to do is stick her ears straight up and sit there all prim and proper like and we're just like "Awwww..." It's sickening.
Anyway, that's all she wrote for now. Knitting pictures coming soon. I promise!
Let It Be Sunday!
