I finally took a picture of Licorice Whip. Hubby is impressed at how it seems to be flying along.

Gotta say, I'm pretty happy with it. I put it on scrap yarn and think it will have some positive ease but not too much. Now lets just hope that I have enough yarn to finish.

The pest control guy came yesterday and sprayed the crap out of the house. Even though I kept the dogs out all day while the stuff dried, Genny has been acting weird--every once in a while she'll start licking (like when she's got peanut butter stuck on the roof of her mouth) and she starts making that sound that dogs make before they puke (no dry heaving, just that staccato breathing). She was just doing it and then started to whine so I took her out and she started eating the grass like it was going out of style. She'll definitely be puking later. Lovely. Although, I hope it makes her feel better.

On yet another non-knitting note, hubby and I have joined Team in Training which works with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to raise awareness and help fund research. If you feel so inclined, you can contribute to my fundraising efforts here.

Oh, what cute DOGS!!! I'm dogsitting a beautiful greyhound Suzie and her little bro Max, a whippet puppy. Too much fun. I feel for you on the fleas. I randomly had a flea problem in my apartment, and I have NO DOGS! It was so awful, my legs were bitten like crazy! I ended up sprinkling borax, and vacuuming twice a day. After about 2 weeks they were all gone. Whew.

I really like licorice, it's been at the back of my knitty-mind to knit one day!

I bet Genny's not feeling well is just coincidental and not caused by the pest control spraying. Hope she starts feeling better soon.

Licorice Whip is coming along quickly. It's a nice looking sweater. I'm anxious to see it finished and modeled on a real person.
