Monday, Fuji jumped off the bed and didn't land right and hurt her leg...she hobbled into the bathroom and hid behind the toilet. Grabbed her and checked her over, no whining or whimpering. Let her rest for a bit and got a piece of cheese out and immediately she perked up and came and took a bite. She is still afraid to jump up or down, so she's being babied. She's not limping or anything so think she is just milking the attention!
Took the cushions off the living room couch so she has a ramp to get on and off the bed, until Daddy can make her a special one....
Yesterday morning, she'd stayed in bed after I'd gotten up. About half an hour later I hear this howling and crying and went running......she was sitting on the edge of the bed wanting to be lifted down, think she forgot about the cushions...I set her down and she went running to the back door to go potty. Funny little girl!
Yesterday she went and sat in the pantry and whined....went to see what she wanted and she moved into the pantry and looked onto the shelf that has her bones....asked her if she wanted a bone and she waved her hand up and down! Toooo smart for her own good! Of course she got a bone, how could she not when she asked so politely!:)
She's now jumping on and off the couch and has almost forgotten her traumatic experience!:) She also is feeling good enough to play "froggy" too, even on the day she hurt herself!
Happy DOT! :)

This is a fantastic pattern! So nice to knit on a pattern without a lot of errata. Very clear, big, nice charts too! Loving it!

This is for the High Fiber Diet's Podcast drive to get hats for the troops!

Close up of the pattern of the 198 yds. of Heaven Shawl...
198 yds. of Heaven by Christy Verity
Knitpicks Interchangeable circular needle size 8
Cascade 220 Handpaints....was odd knitting with this for a shawl. I'm so used to fingering or lace weight. Was not to thrilled with it when knitting it but it blocked out beautifully.
Blocking your knits class went really well today. It was a lot of fun! Was so glad I did this at Wolfe Farms so I could have a lot of show and tells to demonstrate different techniques. PDF instructional handout it is on the Wolfe Farms site. We also blocked Neckio30's cabled scarf! Knit Twit meet that followed was a lot of fun with tons of laughs!

Jimmy and Mary
Our niece, Mary, came to visit us last night. Had a wonderful time chatting with her and visiting. Look forward to many more visits!:)
Knit Twit meet was also today. Vickie, Jackie, Luanne, Nicole, and Nick came over. Nicole was working on hats; Vickie was working on a scarf; Luanne was working on a sweater, Jackie was working on socks and a baby blanket; I was knitting on a WWII hat; Nick and Jimmy were gaming! We had such a good time. We laughed so hard that are sides were hurting! Poor Fuji was recorded "playing" with her froggy...whole new meaning for "frogging!" Nicole even posted it to twitter! I'd made them banana chocolate chip muffins for a snack too!
