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!)
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!!
