Make the most of yourself, for that is all there is of you. -Ralph Waldo Emerson

I finished knitting myself a new cowl pattern this past week called Thermis. I used the same yarn as for my "Jane" hat that I showed in my last post for those times when I want to be matchy-matchy!

I don't have a picture of it on me right now - gosh, it's ridiculously hard to get a good picture of oneself in the mirror - I may need to enlist the help of Alex again to get a picture! For my next knitting project I've decided to tackle a sweater; I have two patterns that I want to knit - one for a raglan pullover and one for a cardigan - and have the supplies for both, I just need to decide which one won't drive me completely bonkers!

Alex and I are looking after his parents dog for a little bit, so let me introduce you to Java!

She's a wheaten terrier and less than a year old. She does not like it when Alex leaves the house without her! There's not much quilting or sewing going on here with the dog since I can't use my normal space, but I'm going to try and fit some in while she's here!

Don't forget that on Monday I will posting my block and tutorial for the Bloggers Block-a-Palooza quilt-along! My block is number 5 so if you have missed any be sure to check out the block schedule I posted earlier!
