where does the time go?

I guess I'm not much of a blogger when I'm working full time. I'd much rather knit, then blog about it - lol.

There has been a significant change in my life. We got a dog! Opie is a white & brindle Olde English Bulldogge - we got him at 11.5 weeks old and he weighed 22 lbs. He has brought joy, laughter and fun into our home ♥ and we all love him dearly.

This is our first day getting to know each other. ♥

He is now 8 months old. He's is the best people person dog, but not-so-much friendly with other dogs. So, we are also doing obedience school. Next wednesday is our last class, and I think we'll sign up for the next session also. it's not terribly expensive, and it get's us out learning with other doggies, so it's good for my Opie.

This is Opie now, laying on his pillow on the couch, living the good life! lol

Work is going very well - I support 4 different areas in my team, so my job is always fresh and interesting, and we are working on a new concept right now for our next campaign.

Knitting is going very well also. I really have to update the side bar, as all of those projects were done eons ago!! (I'm wearing my catkin right now!) I've become a Wollmeise junky, and absolutely love the FO's that I've made with this yarn.

Just a couple pics of my projects:



and am working on my very first Herbert Niebling and although I'm finding the pattern to be a bit difficult, I'm loving it! It is SO elaborate and will be stunning.
