A New Pair of Socks and Gratuitous Puppy Pictures

I finished the socks I have been working on. It feels like forever since I finished a pair of socks - I actually had to think a minute before I could Kitchener the toe on the last sock! These are knit on US 0's in Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock in the Bittersweet colorway. I made up the pattern and I hope to get it written up at some point. When I do, I will post it on the Pink Lemon Knits group. If you don't know what Pink Lemon Knits is, its my Yahoo group that I use to announce happenings with new patterns and knit alongs. The Hot Rod Socks pattern is available there now, and I plan to periodically add other free patterns to the Files section. If you want to join, click HERE.

OK, enough of the socks, everyone is really here for the puppy pics!Finn is doing great! He set a new personal record yesterday - two days in a row without an accident in the house! WOoHOo! He was alternating days there for a while: one day of going outside to do his business, and one day for me to work on my carpet cleaning techniques. So far today he's doing great and considering that most of his accidents have been in the morning (before I'm caffeinated), that's a good thing. Finn has discovered the air conditioning vents and let me tell you, he loves them. He uses them to cool off after he's been outside on his little walks (smart dog), but he also likes to sleep on them even when he's not hot from outside. He turns into a little pupsicle, and to be honest I don't know how he can stand it! He's not going to be too thrilled in a few months when heat starts coming out those vents. The picture above is pretty accurate colorwise. When he gets his picture taken with flash, he comes out darker and more red than he really is. Here's one more shot of the little guy, doing Frog Dog!

I love the SuperDog pose! Jack sleeps every night like that! The socks are cool, too! Mindy

Oh, what a cutie! I wish I could give him a squeeze and smell that sweet puppy breath.
The socks are nice, too. ;-)

Such a sweet little guy. My beagle does the same Frog Dog pose. Glad to know we're not alone in calling it that too! Question, any estimate as to when the whole Mystery Stole 2 pattern will be posted for us Ginny-Come-Latelys? Just trying to organize my stash... Thanks for all your hard work!

Oh my goodness what a cutie, and the socks are nice too. My Abner still lays like the frog dog pose. He's now 3.

Wish I could give him a snuggle, he's absolutely adorable.

My emglish mastiff does the super dog thing too - so funny! (She also does this thing where she sleeps on her side with her paws crossed, ever the lady LOL)

Finn is adorable! (and the socks are pretty great too! *S*)

Finn has got to be one of the cutest puppies I have ever seen. And I love his name. Good for him finding the air conditioner vents! Smart dog.
