Spring is coming --> I am sure it is!

That is what this photo says to me.

If you are unfamiliar with her work and/or you love doxies, you need to check out Terry Pond's artwork. I hope she doesn't mind me posting this photo - it does contain her copyright info and I am including a link to her website, www.wiener-dog.com.

I wanted to find a good one of Tico, the Bad, to post today, but I did not have one handy right now. I will post about the speed limit enforcing little fella another time. The lil darlin'.

KnitKnote:
I am soooooo close to completing my February Lady - right on time I might add. It was my own personal challenge to complete her this month. I am down to the bottom few repeats of lace pattern, then the garter border, and I do not have enough yarn. Yes, you read it right, I have to wait for the nice folks at Cestari to mail me one (1) skein of yarn!!!

FYI, Cestari Sheep & Land Co. is having its Wool Fair the weekend of April 25-26, 2009. Last year they had demonstrations by the Virginia Percheron Draft Horse Association, animals for petting, wool and food to nurture whichever need you had at a particular moment, and lots of other interesting things to do and see. I will post more when I get the brochure they are working up as I type.

Love the artwork. That one is especially happy. Don't you hate it when you get so close to the end and the yarn runs out. I hope it arives quickly.
