Dog Tired

Sorry for the lack of posting.

I'm winding things down at work, and I'll be honest, even if I wasn't going out in a week I would still be overwhelmed with too many things to do.

It's been a lot of late hours doing menial things that for some silly reason I can't expect my replacement (the floater) to do while I'm gone.

Over the weekend though--when I wasn't having angsty work dreams/nightmares--I managed to finish something I was knitting.

I actually finished the puppy pieces for this a while ago, but this weekend I found some time to actually put him together.



I'm a cat girl by nature, but dang, this puppy is cute!

Pattern: Pile-Able Pups

Yarn: Red Heart (my go-to knitted toy yarn!)

Needles: US5

What can I say about this pattern? It's straightforward with uber-cute results.

This--and hopefully a couple more to-be-knit puppies while I'm on maternity leave--will be wending their way to the mom of the fourth Firm Baby this year. She's having a boy at the beginning of July.

I suppose I could have knit him a cute sweater or something, but with babies, you never know what size they're going to end up being when it gets cold, especially if they're born in the summer.

Plus, I think I've pretty much declared the end of 2012 the year of Mochimochi patterns!!

Aaw, his beady eyes are so shiny. Love him.
And I'm off cats today. There was a big pile of cat sick on our porch this morning. And we don't even have any cats!

Very cute puppy!

And take some time to rest before that baby comes! When I was pregnant with my daughter, I worked literally up to the day she was born - my water broke at work (she was two weeks early). I had a terrible pregnancy in every sense of the word, and I really regretted not having any time off just to rest before she came.

When I was pregnant with my son, I saved up enough vacation time to take two weeks off before my due date. He ended up being a week late anyway, so I actually had three weeks off from work before he came. Having those few weeks off before he came to relax and get things done at home was great, and relieved a lot of stress.

Don't wear yourself out before that baby comes!

Take it easy, there. Your body is working hard.

The puppy is adorable and I hope you made one for your daughter to be. That looks like it could become a favorite lovey.
