Bonnie Blue

I've been pretty busy knitting this weekend and I'm almost done with the blue tank. I think I will call her Bonnie. Real original, huh?

I finished the right side yesterday and hope to make the same kind of progress on the left side tonight. I still have the i-cord straps to do, but I think I'm going to try it on first and then knit the straps based on the fit. I like the decrease method used in the pattern, so I learned something new.

I wonder if I'll have the guts to wear it when all is said and done. Maybe with another tank under it or something. Hopefully by the end of the week I will have a finished product up for review. The cats are unimpressed, as they think mom suddenly made them a blanket for them to relax on while sunning on the back deck.

Today is sad for me. Sasha, the dog I got when I was 16 years old, has gotten too sick for us to stand by and watch her suffer through her last days. We're taking her to the vet today at 11:45a to say goodbye. She's been a good dog for 14 years and was my father's devoted companion. It's going to be a tough day, but my mom and I know it is the right thing to do. We're going to bring her ashes to Boone and spread them at the graveyard so she can be next to dad. Here's a photo of my girl just a few months ago. It's not the best picture of her, but it's the only one I had this morning.

Heather, I am so sad about Shasa. I know your dad loved her and they were great friends. I am very glad you will spread her ashes in the cemetary in Boone. How fitting.
